About Us‎ > ‎


The Westlake Counseling Department supports students as they develop competencies in the following areas: academic, personal/social, and career. We collaborate with teachers to develop interventions/strategies, deliver guidance lessons to all students, offer small groups, and meet individually with students to support learning and success. Students can access their school counselor, psychologist, or SRO by filling out a request form in the counseling office. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's counselor with any academic or social concerns.

The Counseling Department's general responsibilities include:

  • Academic support.
  • Career exploration.
  • Working with students individually and in groups for middle school success.
  • Personal/social development and interventions.
  • New student registration and orientation to WLMS.
