Welcome to the Ark City Middle School Counseling Department website. It is our mission to provide exceptional service within the educational environment that contributes to the academic success, personal growth, and positive social contribution of ACMS students. We embrace a student-oriented philosophy that is respectful of diversity and is committed to the development of the student as a whole person. In our ever-changing world and society, it is more critical than ever to be well-informed of the latest requirements, resources, and opportunities for all of our students.
We are also here to support you through times when things seem overwhelming and stressful.
What you say in here, stays in here... unless someone is hurting you, you want to hurt yourself, you want to hurt someone else, or a serious crime has been committed.
Counselors have a legal obligation, in certain situations, to report relevant issues to law enforcement and/or Department for Children and Families.
Please take the time to review this site carefully, and often. This site is designed to be a resource, and a complement to the services that are provided by our counseling staff. Our counseling staff is committed to the success of all students. To reach our counselors you may call the main school line (620-441-2030).
