Image supporting the counseling services at NMS

Counselors are student advocates who support students throughout their middle school journey and help students prepare for high school.

Because everyone’s home and social life is different and often impacts learning, counselors are there to support students and their parents holistically, as they face personal, social, and academic challenges.

This section also covers information on testing, waivers, for students new to the district, course registration, course selection packets, district graduation requirements as well as services available to students and families.
