• Welcome to Atlanta Public Schools and Ralph J. Bunche Middle School we are excited to be Counselors’ in Atlanta Public Schools. Parents and students new and returning back to APS, we are working to provide counseling services for you and your child(ren), getting them acquainted to the school year and our roles are as counselors. We will be meeting with all of the new students to make sure they have a smooth transition this school year. We look forward to the many programs this year that will further complement the great job the teachers and counselors are already doing, to prepare your children to become college and career ready as 21st century global competitive learners in today’s society.
