     Counseling Mission:

    The Harper Archer Middle School Counseling Department mission is to mentor, guide and foster the academic, personal and social development of our students by removing & reducing barriers to their success as they transition to high school.


    What We Do:

    The counselors at Harper Archer Middle School are here to mentor, guide and foster the academic and emotional/social development of “ALL” students at Harper Archer Middle School. We work with students on an individual basis and in group settings. We also meet with parents to educate and provide assistance to reduce academic barriers. We consult with faculty members to ensure that we are collaborating on best practices for optimal student achievement on all levels. Moreover, we are here to ensure that all students are successful and to assist with the transition from middle school to high school.
