  • 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

    Nimitz 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.
