• We often have students (and parents) ask the question, "Where do you go for help?" 

    "To counsel and educate all students to be successful in their academic achievement, personal and social development and career aspirations."

    The guidance counselors at Coon Rapids Middle School help students succeed in their academic and personal lives. Students face challenges both personally and developmentally that may interfere with their academic success. We provide a safe, supportive environment for students and offer a variety of services including:
    • Individual, small group and crisis counseling.
    • Interpersonal communication skills.
    • Problem solving and coping strategies.
    • Consult with staff and families regarding student needs and concerns.
    • Make referrals to outside counseling agencies.
    Note: We may be unavailable during the school day to answer incoming calls because of previously scheduled appointments, meetings, testing, and counseling sessions. It is our goal to answer our voice mail or email messages within 24 hours. If you prefer to meet with one of us, please call us to set up an appointment. We look forward to working with you!
    We know that the status of our economy affects many families. Therefore, we want to ensure that students are still able to participate in activities at school and eat breakfast or lunch. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call us.


    We are located just down the hall from the main office. Students may make appointments to see us by stopping in and filling out a request form. Parents may also call us to set up an appointment.
