School Life

Counseling Corner


Welcome to The Dunham School’s Counseling Corner. Our goal is to provide your family with information on a wide variety of topics to help your student. 

School counselors know how to listen and can help kids with life's challenges. Counselors have special training in how to help kids solve problems, make decisions and stand up for themselves.

That doesn't mean your counselor will wave a magic wand and the problem will go away. But it does mean he or she will help you cope with it. Coping is an important word to know. Sometimes, kids and grown-ups have difficult problems. Coping means that someone is trying to handle these problems and make things better.

Your school counselor is available for you and wants to make your school experience the best it can be. The counselor's job is to take your problem seriously and help you find a solution. The counselor also wants to help you learn as much as you can in class, be a contributing member of the school community, and be a positive influence on your environment.
