 School Counseling Program Beliefs


The School Counselors at Phillip Sharp Middle School believe:    


  • School counselors are advocates for every student.
  • All students have significance, worth, and the potential to achieve success.
  • All students – regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation – shall have equal access to all services (academic, career, and personal/social) provided by the counseling program and the school.
  • The school counseling program serves a central role in meeting students’ developmental needs through interventions in academic, career, and personal/social domains.
  • Student needs can be best met through a data-driven comprehensive school counseling program in collaboration with all stakeholders.
  • School counselors are leaders and agents of change in school culture and academic achievement.
  • The school counseling program provides valuable resources to be used in collaboration with educational stakeholders to increase equity and access to opportunity.
  • Learning experiences should be designed around the students’ needs in such a way as to make them personally meaningful to students. 
  • All students learn best when positive relationships are present and fostered by all educational stakeholders.
  • School counselors develop positive relationships and recognize the unique strengths and abilities possessed by each individual student as tools to achieve their goals.
  • A comprehensive school counseling program is tailored to meet students’ educational and developmental needs as identified through assessments, delivered using evidence-based programs, and evolved through data analysis of outcomes.
  • The American School Counselor Association ethical standards should guide the work of the school counseling program and school counselors.
