The highest priority of the Midview Guidance Program is to support the unique roles and needs of each student. This support comes as the result of the combined and cooperative efforts of counselors, administrators, teachers, parents, auxiliary staff, and community resource persons.
Each student has the potential for personal success and for contributing something of value to the community. It is the goal of the Guidance Department to realistically encourage each student to take advantage of the opportunities available in the schools and community, and to guide students toward accepting personal responsibility for all decisions affecting social, emotional, academic, and vocational growth.
The MHS Guidance Department adheres to the American School Counselor Association Ethical Standards for School Counselors and the American School Counseling Association Code of Ethics. MHS students have the right to privacy and counselors will guard that right as much as is permitted by law and ethical standards. Counselors are obligated to protect all students from harm, and to uphold school rules related to student conduct.
