Guiding Students to Learning
Elementary & Intermediate School Services
From the time they are introduced to school as Kindergartners, our youngest students are in the constant process of developing their concept of self and assessing themselves as learners in relation to their peers. Our school counselors focus on supporting students during this time by helping them to develop positive attitudes about themselves, their peers and school. Specially trained to observe and recognize the emotional needs of students coming from diverse backgrounds, our school counselors assist in developing strong foundations based on on good decision-making and communication skills. It is our goal that our students leave our elementary and intermediate schools with a healthy perception of themselves, believing in their own abilities to be good learners and good people.
Middle School Services
Parents and students appreciate the strong support network provided by our North Canton Middle School Guidance Department. As students enter into a new phase of self-discovery, our counselors focus on fostering a safe and supportive environment for them to explore and learn about themselves throughout the defining years of middle school. We spend a significant amount of time helping students foster and build healthy relationships. Our students are assigned a school counselor in 6th grade who will stay with and support them all the way until they leave after the 8th grade. It is our goal that our students complete middle school with a strong sense of self and excitement about the ability to focus on their interests in the years ahead.
High School Services
At Hoover High School, our school counselors assist students with academic, personal, college, and career information and decisions. Our students have constant access to their counselors in individual, group and classroom settings. We continue the strong relationships we have developed with our parents and students over the years by regularly providing resources intended to help our students in their social, emotional and intellectual pursuits. It is our goal that our students conclude their academic careers at Hoover with the tools and direction they need to successfully take the next steps in their life.
