Welcome to the Lynbrook North Middle School Guidance Department. The members of our support staff work with students, parents, teachers, and administration in many ways to support each student through middle school.

The Guidance Program is designed to produce responsible, self-aware young adults. Guidance and counseling services are greaty needed at this level as adolescents wrestle with diverse issues such as self-doubt, peer pressure, changing emotions, strugles for independence, and rapid growth. Through individual or group counseling, building team meetings, and parent/teacher conferences, the counselors work as advocates for the students.
