Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model
The goal of the school counseling program is to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in school and beyond. This is done by putting in place prevention measures to teach students skills in three domains: personal/social, academic, and career. School Counselors are always asking students to answer three essential questions: Who am I? Where am I going? How will I get there? Students are encouraged to use the answers to these questions to guide their decision making. While school counseling is a K-12 continuum, there are some differences between the levels.

Middle School Counseling
Counseling services at the middle school level include transition services from middle to high school and work with students’ Academic and Career Plans. Students are also seen individually and in groups on an as needed basis to help them be successful in school. Groups that have been run in the past include Stress Management Group and School Success Group. Heavy emphasis is placed on the personal/social and academic domains of the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model.
Role Models Curriculum
“We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The junior/senior high school is using the Role Models Curriculum during Falcon Time to foster relationships and promote a positive school community. This curriculum focuses on character traits such as respect, integrity, tolerance, and appreciation to promote leadership among the students. Students will read about leaders, watch movie clips, discuss ethical dilemmas, and review basic skills about 6 different character traits per year.
