School Counseling is for Everyone!

The mission of the Parkview School District School Counseling Program is to contribute to the assurance of the academic and career success and personal/social development of every student.                                                                        


The Parkview Elementary Comprehensive School Counseling Program is based on the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model and the American School Counseling Association National Model which integrates academic, career, and personal/social development.

Research indicates that the benefits of a developmental school counseling program improves:

  • School attitudes and work habits, which correlate to dropping out or staying in school.
  • Peer relationships and communication skills.
  • Motivation, behavior, and grades, which correlate to learning and achievement.

An elementary school counseling program aims to impact student's self-esteem through intervention and prevention services. Students develop socially and emotionally, as well as physically and cognitively. A comprehensive program can address the vital process skills students must have in the workplace tomorrow, as well as intervene in problems that interfere with learning today.

A balanced, comprehensive program consists of coordination, prevention, and intervention techniques. A counselor provides academic support to the classroom teacher to ensure that each individual student learns as much as possible. A counselor coordinates with teachers, parents, and administrators to provide an optimal learning environment for all students.
