Welcome to the King Counseling department!
We are excited to get to know students and work in partnership with caregivers during your time here at King. Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment that supports and empowers all King scholars!
Our team of counselors hold a variety of roles. Some focus on each grade level and some serve the whole school. Each grade has a designated school counselor who will advance with your scholar each year. The two school-wide counseling roles focus on school culture and climate through Restorative Justice and Community Building initiatives. Each year the Counseling Team includes Masters level graduate students working towards licensure in a counseling-related field.
We work with students in a variety of ways: individual check ins for social emotional and/or academic support, supportive groups, and clubs. You may see us on campus running assemblies, leading lunchtime clubs, running community-building circles in your classrooms, and bringing school spirit to events. Clubs and support groups change year to year depending on student interest and staff capacity. We also run the Leadership Clubs on campus, and work to provide a variety of meaningful ways for students to contribute. Examples of leadership opportunities are: Restorative Justice Leaders, Leadership Council, Wellness Educators, and King Ambassadors. Visit the Clubs & Leadership Opportunities page for more information.
For students who need extra support, we are willing to pass along referrals for outside therapy for those who may benefit from weekly mental health support. We’re excited to support you academically, socially and emotionally during your time here at King!
