Lakeside Middle School has two school counselors, Ms. Ashley Atkins and Mrs. Sharon Corbin. Our school counselors are available to students each day to assist them with various needs such as educational planning, career exploration, and personal concerns.
The focus of the LMS school counseling program is to help students recognize their personal strengths and weaknesses and to encourage them to develop plans for personal growth. Our school counselors are also available to consult with parents about concerns they may have regarding their children.
Additionally, Ms. Atkins and Mrs. Corbin are instrumental in activities such as the gifted placement process, the Response to Intervention process (RTI), the Duke Talent Tip Program Search, the interpretation of standardized test results, while working together with parents and teachers to help provide an environment where all students succeed.
