Our Philosophy
Because of continual changes in the home, the community, and the school, the school counselors at Brecksville-Broadview Middle School must provide a comprehensive, developmental program which is an equal partner with other essential school programs.
 
We provide a carefully planned program which helps our students to acquire developmentally appropriate skills, and we use the latest methods, activities, materials, and technology in this effort.  Although we respond to immediate problems and conflicts involving our students, we embrace a proactive approach to our student's counseling and guidance needs.
How Can Your School Counselor Help?
Students are encouraged to visit the School Counseling Office anytime they are free:  before school, after school, during lunch, EI or a study hall.  Students should not miss a class in order to see their counselor unless it is a emergency!  If the counselor is unavailable when the student stops in, Mrs. Schreiber will direct the student to fill out a "request slip" with a brief note explaining the request.  The student will be called down as soon as possible after receiving the request slip.  Parents are encouraged to call or email their son or daughter's School Counselor anytime they have a question or need assistance with an issue their child may be facing academically, socially or emotionally.  Our door is always open!

A Note on Confidentiality
The guidance office is a place a student or parent may come to discuss concerns confidentially.  Confidentiality means that personal concerns will not be shared with others.  However, counselors are required by law to contact other appropriate adults if a situation arises that puts someone in physical or emotional harm.
