Helping Students and Families
The counseling department at BTMS has a variety of functions. Ultimately, we are here to help all students be successful students and people in the community. Middle school can be a novel experience and a time of transition for students. The counselors would like to help ease students into this transition and be able to deal with the many changes they experience at this age.
