Principal's Message
At Carmenita Middle School, our School Counseling Team is committed to supporting the academic, career/college, and socio-emotional development of each and every student. 

We believe that education is the shared responsibility and accountability of parents, staff, students, and the community.  This allows our students to flourish academically and meet the highest standards allowing them to have a wide variety of options as they go on to high school.

We encourage all students to reach their full potential.  We do this by providing a safe school climate that nurtures this in every student. It is our goal to provide support and inspiration to all students in developing mindsets and behaviors necessary to become productive citizens. 

Carmenita Middle School's Counseling Program changes lives by collaborating with families, teachers, and the community surrounding us.  We address student needs and increase their opportunities for a brighter future.
