Counseling Center

The Counseling Department handles everything from scheduling classes to providing a friendly face to turn to when a student needs to talk.

Counselors are responsible for the delivery of services to the entire student population. The role of counseling is to help students enhance their learning process; deal with their present life situations more effectively; become goal-directed and self-directed in preparing for their life and careers; and to develop positive personal, interpersonal, and social skills. Counselors also serve as the liaisons between home and school for helping students navigate the transition at each level. 

The Midland High Counseling Center is dedicated to helping students manage their lives, inside and outside of school. Counselors check in with students regularly as well as offer additional meetings when needed. To make an appointment with your counselor, sign up in the Counseling Office.
