• The William Byrd Middle School Counseling program is a comprehensive developmental program designed to provide direct assistance to all students in acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary for healthy development during the middle school years.  Guidance and counseling services are an integral part of the school’s total program that supports the educational, vocational, and socio-personal development of each student.  Our curriculum consists of classroom guidance activities, small groups, and individual counseling sessions, career and educational planning, and class registration. In addition, counselors work closely with students, teachers, administrators, and parents to provide an optimal learning environment for each student.  In the end, we hope, as professional school advocates for students, that our program will help students become lifelong learners and productive citizens.
