Welcome to the
River Dell Middle School
Department of Guidance and Counseling Website

The transition back to school is exciting, yet can sometimes be difficult for students and their families. Getting off to a positive start can help shape your child’s attitudes and performance, both socially and academically. Help your child to adjust by establishing consistent routines, setting aside time each night to complete homework, and talking about their day at school. Set your child up for success!


Please check the guidance website throughout the year for news and information regarding school counseling services. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of the guidance staff at the information provided below.
