  • Mental Wellness Counselors

    Student Well-Being & Mental Wellness counselors help students develop life skills to meet the complex challenges that may arises at school, at home, or in the community. The goal of our counselors is to maximize students' success emotionally, socially, behaviorally, and academically.

  • Guidance Services

    Harris Middle School counselors are here to aide students with coping skills, healthy relationships, bullying/cyberbullying, self-awareness, and drug prevention and awareness.

  • Extracurricular Activities

    Extracurriculars provide an environment where all students can learn new skills or hone those skills already familiar. We think learning happens best experientially and inspires wholeness in every area of life. 

  • Counselors in the Classroom

    The NEISD Counselors teach guidance lessons in the classroom to support and enhance the learning process.  Some of the topics include:

    • Coping Skills - Help equip students with the skills they need to address anxiety, frustration, anger, sadness, and a variety of other stressful emotions in healthy ways.
    • Healthy Relationships - Help students identify and recognize healthy and unhealthy relationships, and teach them the skills to make positive choices.
    • Bullying/Cyberbullying - Help students learn all aspects of bullying/cyberbullying, and focus on prevention and character education. 
    • Self-Awareness - Teach students how to be aware of their own thoughts and feelings, and how to self-regulate their emotions and responses.
    • Drug Prevention and Awareness - Equip students with the skills to make healthy choices necessary for a full and productive life.
