We will prepare students socially, emotionally, and academically to become independent learners and cooperative problem solvers.


Counselor’s Role:

Your student’s counselor will be with your student throughout his/her two-year EJHS experience. One of the joys of counseling is watching your student grow over the two year period. Your student can go the counselor for personal, group, academic and/or social issues. The counselor won’t “fix” things, but will facilitate problem solving. The Edison Junior High Counseling Department provides the following services:


Classroom group guidance and counseling

Involvement with parent/teacher conferences

Consulting services

Staff and parent consultation

Community resource information for students and parents

Coping strategies

Peer relationships and effective social skills
