I would like to welcome back all returning students and parents in addition to all new students and families.  Knoxville is a great place to live and learn.

Knoxville Middle School has a safe, caring, and consistent environment where students learn.
I want students and parents to feel that all staff in the building will do whatever it takes to make the best possible learning environment for their child.

This is accomplished with hard work and reflection on a daily basis with student needs in mind.  When talking about student needs, you cannot stop at academic needs.  Students need to be listened to, respected, shown compassion, and guided through decision making.  This is especially true at the middle school level.

If we can make a connection with all students in some way, they are more likely to find that attachment and belonging to school so they are able to be successful.  You never know when you are going to make those connections; therefore, a positive mindset is needed everyday you step in the building both as a teacher and a student.

Please contact your teacher or the office if we can assist you with questions.

Welcome,

Brian McNeill, Principal

KMS Guidance

What do we do as School Counselors?
According to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), school counselors create comprehensive school counseling programs that focus on student outcomes, teach student competencies and are delivered with identified professional competencies.

For middle school students, this means the school counselor focuses on academic growth, personal social and emotional development, and future career readiness.  School counselors create an environment where students feel comfortable discussing areas of potential growth and change for their lives.

As the school counselors, we hold confidential sessions with the students, unless a student is threatening harm to themselves or others, or if someone is harming them.  We ask that you respect this private and professional relationship, although guardians do have the right to ask about sessions with minors.  This allows students to be open and honest with the school counselor.

Students are welcome to come see us at any time!  We also hope to talk with parents regularly about any interests or concerns they may have.

Our Mission
The mission of the Knoxville Middle School school counseling program is to help all students reach their full potential by increasing their academic knowledge and skills, encouraging the development of their personal and social skills, and sparking interest in future career potential.  Students are the assets of the future, and this program will support their growth and development to face future challenges alongside teachers, administration, parents, and the surrounding community.
