Robert M. Finley Middle School
Welcome to the Robert M. Finley Middle School Guidance Department!
The Middle School Guidance Department will focus on academic achievement, setting personal goals, student-rights and responsibilities, respect for themselves and others, as well as understanding student developmental stages. These goals will be accomplished through a comprehensive approach using individual and small group counseling, classroom guidance, consulting and coordinating with other related support staff and teachers.
In addition, the Guidance Counselors facilitate groups on self-esteem, future planning, career education, decision making, conflict resolution, peer pressure and other issues of particular concern to students.
The master notebook will be supported in the guidance program.
The guidance staff believes in an open door policy. Please call our guidance secretary to make an appointment at 801-7571.
