Social-Emotional Supports

Request to Meet with a Counselor - CLICK HERE
Middle school students have unique social and emotional needs.  Growing bodies, developing minds, and hormonal changes all play a part.  There are a lot of ways parents can support their middle school student's social and emotional development.
 
PVIS counselors are also available to support your student through this stage.  Whether it's a problem with a peer, a challenge at home, or everyday stress, we want PVIS students and families to know that we are here for them.  
 
In addition to school counselors Mr. Sanz and Mrs. McKenna, PVIS is fortunate to have a therapist on campus a couple days a week.  Please contact your student's counselor if you'd like more information.
