Counseling Department

Welcome to the King Counseling department!

We are excited to get to know you during your time here at King. Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment for all students. We are here to support and empower you. 

 

Each grade has a designated school counselor who will advance with you each year. Our restorative justice counselor works with all grade levels. We are available to meet with any student for individual check-ins. Common concerns that students seek support for include academic achievement, peer challenges, identity, divorce, depression and many other topics. We also lead groups on a variety of topics such as anxiety, grief and loss, queer and questioning and trauma. You may see us on campus running assemblies, leading lunchtime clubs, running circles in your classrooms and bringing school spirit to community building events. 

 

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!

Clubs & Groups

 

The Counseling department creates and leads clubs and groups throughout the school year. Each year we try to offer a variety of ways for students to connect with each other. Here is a list of common groups and clubs we offer. Contact your grade level counselor if you’re interested in starting or joining a group or club!
