School Counselors

Mission Statement

It is our belief that each Haverford Middle School student is unique, possessing intrinsic personal worth and deserving of unconditional positive regard and respect. Our endeavor is to create the kind of relationship that allows for each child to reach their full potential, not only academically, but socially and emotionally.

Although we have had designated counselors for each grade level in the middle school in the past, in the 2022-23 school year and moving forward, the guidance department will rotate with their students. Counselors work closely with teachers, parents and administrators to support our students. We feel that rotating allows us to continue to build relationships and puts us in the best position to advocate for them throughout the three years they are at HMS.

There are three rotating counselors and one support counselor at Haverford. We also have the support of our social worker and Lakeside Counselors. Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about your child's success here at HMS.
