Counseling Center


"Counselors help students become capable, confident and competent, while being sensitive to others."

 Welcome to Silverado!
You have been assigned a very special person to help you grow and develop during middle school, your counselor!  Your counselor provides information concerning education and career opportunities, and they give you suggestions regarding emotional, social or behavioral problems and help you develop a clearer focus or sense of direction.  The counselors work as team members with school staff, parents, and the community to create a caring supportive climate and atmosphere whereby you can achieve full academic potential to become productive, contributing members of the world community.
