Mr. Ferrer, Principal
Principal's Message
The school counselors have done a lot for 
Westlake Middle School in terms of academic, social-emotional, and career counseling. 

They check student's grades each marking period and create action plans to support their academic improvement. 

They deliver guidance lessons on topics like problem-solving, journal writing, identifying feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, A-G requirements, along with career exploration. 

In addition, the school counselors offer individual sessions with scholars and facilitate group counseling.
