MISSION STATEMENT

The Quail Hollow Middle School Counseling Department will provide a comprehensive program, which is developmentally appropriate, and focuses on leadership skills, social/emotional needs, academic support, and college/career readiness. As professional school counselors and advocates, we will strive to remove all barriers to ensure all students regardless of race, socioeconomic status, gender, and/or religion have equal access to counseling services to maximize student potential and academic achievement. In partnership with teachers, administrators, parents, and community leaders, our goal is to promote a commitment to lifelong learning and to empower students on the P.A.T.H. to becoming responsible and productive 21st century global leaders.

 

 

CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT

  • To support the students right to privacy and protect confidential information received from students, the family, guardian and staff members
