• Welcome to the MVMS Counseling Support & Resources Page!

    The Counseling Department at Mill Valley Middle School is dedicated to assisting students with their academic, social, and emotional needs. Counseling gives students an opportunity to talk about problems they are experiencing and to work on problem-solving in a safe, supportive, and confidential setting.  Students can request counseling by dropping a request into the wooden box in the counseling area, asking their counselor directly, asking their teacher, or by email.


    Additionally, parents, teachers, administrators, or other students may refer a student to their school counselor.    Parents/guardians are encouraged to contact the counselors if they have concerns regarding their student's academic, social, or emotional development while at Mill Valley Middle School.
