Our Licking Heights Local Schools counselors make a big impact throughout our school buildings! Counselors design monthly classroom lessons focusing on goal-setting, cooperation,kindness, diversity and culture, respect, bullying, responsibility, and career exploration.
At Central Middle School, Ms. Wills and Mrs. Krouse provide time management and studying tips, and help students with organizational solutions. This information is especially helpful to students as the end of the grading period and state testing windows approach.
At North Elementary, Mrs. Hall and Miss Snider, counseling intern, provide individual and small group counseling. They hold small group counseling sessions to help students build skills in relation to a particular issue.
