Counselors

Removing barriers to help students create paths to success

Our mission as Professional School Counselors of McClure Middle School is to address all students’ academic, career and personal/social development needs by implementing and evaluating a comprehensive school counseling program that supports student success.


Our Counselors


Academic Counseling

The counselors are directly involved with the teachers, administrators and school psychologist regarding academic counseling. Counselors also meet with students by referral from parents or teachers regarding academic difficulties. Please call us or email us at any time if you have concerns.

Classroom Guidance

The use of classroom guidance is an efficient way to distribute information to large groups of students. Classroom guidance lessons often include information on conflict resolution, stress management, anger management, organization, study skills, test taking tips, career development, orientation to middle school (6th), and orientation to high school (8th).

Individual Counseling

The counselors are available to students for individual counseling at any time. An appointment is preferred, however, a counselor is always available in an emergency situation. Should the need arise in a crisis situation the Cobb County Prevention Intervention Center is notified and an opportunity for a free assessment would be offered to parent and student.

Counseling Curriculum

Throughout middle school, the counseling department will deliver lessons in the following domains:

  • Career
  • Academic
  • Personal/Social

Group Testing

All seventh grade students will be given the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) and Iowa Test (formally the ITBS) in the fall. In addition, all 8th graders will be given the Redistep Test. This test will help our students get comfortable with ACT/SAT style testing. All students will be taking the Georgia Milestones Tests in the spring.

Parent Support Services

Counselors are available to meet with parents by appointment to discuss students' academic or personal concerns. Please contact us by calling or e-mailing in order to schedule an appointment.

Please check the counselor blog periodically to see upcoming events.

Career Development

Counselors focus on career guidance in the classrooms throughout the year. Career Cruising is an interactive, developmentally appropriate website for middle schoolers to explore career options, interests, and educational opportunities. You can log onto the site at www.careercrusing.com. Students are given username and password information each year.
