School Counseling

School Counselors are here to help students reach their full potential. We are actively committed to helping students explore their abilities, strengths, interests, and talents as these traits relate to career awareness and development.

School Counselors help parents focus on ways to further the educational, personal and social growth of their children and work with teachers and other educators to help students explore their potential and set realistic goals for themselves.

School Counselors seek to identify and utilize community resources that can enhance and complement comprehensive school counseling programs and help students become productive members of society BMHS’s comprehensive developmental school counseling program is considered an integral part of the educational process that enables all students to achieve success in school.
