Welcome to the Horizon Middle School Counseling Department 

Our mission is to provide all students with high-quality, comprehensive counseling services that develop and strengthen academic, social-emotional and career skills. Through the combined efforts of the student, family, school and community, we aim to create resilient and responsible citizens for a diverse and ever-changing world.

We believe…

  • Education should focus on whole-child development.
  • All students can learn, grow and be successful.
  • All students have the right to a safe and supportive learning environment.
  • All students need a caring adult they can turn to in a time of need.

We will…

  • Provide services and support based on the needs of students and the school community.
  • Advocate for students, teachers, parents/guardians, administrators, and the community. 
  • Improve our program through education and professional development.

The Horizon Middle School counselors are Roan Howard and Kara Estes.
