Group Counseling

Each year our team of professionals plan and implement small groups based on the needs of our student population. Below are some common groups we have facilitated. If you would like your child to participate in a group, contact Student Services.

  • Healthy Living
  • New Students

WLMS Student Services works closely with students, parents, and teachers to help make the middle school experience positive. 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. (Example: adoption, ADHD, drug/alcohol abuse, etc.)


WLMS Student Services 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 student services.
