Meet Your Counselor
Guidance is an essential part of the education continuum offered to Hicksville Middle School students. The guidance program works towards the creation of a learning environment in which each student is assured the opportunity to realize his or her full capabilities. Guidance counselors work together with parents, teachers and administrators to assist in developing the whole child, intellectually and academically, individually and socially.
Each year represents an integral step in a student's development. With the assistance of guidance counselors, students will engage in a process of academic and personal goal setting so that they may be better equipped to succeed in the middle level grades, high school and when they attend college.
Students will be assigned a counselor who will help them throughout the three years in middle school. We strongly encourage students and parents to speak to the guidance counselor if students are experiencing any academic or personal struggles, and to plan future course of studies. All counselors always welcome the opportunity to speak with students and parents. The services of the Hicksville Middle School Guidance Department are always available!
