The Ranch View Middle School Counseling Team strives to build trusting relationships with all students, staff, parents and community members. Our ongoing pursuit is to effectively design and implement a school guidance curriculum, individual student planning, responsive services and systems support within Ranch View.
The Counseling Department's goal is to support each student in understanding the unique challenges both personally and developmentally that impact academic achievement, emotional health and personal growth. Ranch View Middle School Counselors are committed to work with students and supporting their academic, social and personal growth. 
Ranch View Middle School Counselor's follow the ethical code and standards of American School Counselor Association (ASCA). Which means, "A school counselor, who is in a counseling relationship with a student, has an ethical and legal obligation to keep information contained within that relationship. Confidentiality is the ethical and legal term ascribed to the information communicated within the counseling relationship, and it must be maintained unless keeping that information confidential leads to foreseeable harm."(ASCA, 2018).
Student appointments can be made by filling out a pass in the Counseling Office. Parent appointments can be made by contacting their child's assigned counselor.
Some of the services that are provided by the Counseling Department include, but are not limited to:
*Problem Solving *Conflict Resolution *Home, Family and Friends *Schedule Changes *Course Selection and Class Placement *Organizational Skills *Homework Help *Sharing Accomplishments *Study Skills *Providing Additional Resources
