Welcome to Shivela Middle School's Counseling Page!
Counselors at SMS are committed to enhancing the academic, emotional, and personal growth of students. Some of the services we provide include:
- Individual counseling
- Small group support
- Teacher/parent consultation
- Classroom guidance activities
- Community referrals
- Academic monitoring
- Peer programs
Counselors at SMS are assigned by grade level and follow students to their next grade level, allowing students to stay with the same counselor all 3 years.
Counselors are available from 8:15 AM - 3:30 PM on regular school days; Students may come to Student Services and ask to see their counselor before school, at break, at lunch, or after school. If counselors are unavailable, students should fill out a request form in Student Services and their counselor will contact that student as quickly as possible.
Counselors are also available to meet with parents when a need arises. Parents are asked to contact Student Services in advance and schedule an appointment by calling (951) 696-1406.
If there are concerns about a student's class, parents are asked to contact the teacher first. If there are still difficulties after contact has been made, parents may contact their student's counselor for further assistance.
