The Oak Valley team of counselors works closely with students, parents, and teachers to help make the middle school experience a positive one. When issues/concerns extend beyond the area of academics and the school, referrals to local agencies can be requested. Our referrals can be for general counseling, as well as for specific topics (for example: adoption, ADD, drug/alcohol use).

Consultation: Counselors at Oak Valley can work with private counselors, therapists, doctors, and other professionals to share valuable information about the student’s school life. A release of information form needs to be signed by the parent before information can be exchanged. Forms are available in the counseling office.
