    School Counseling!

    The School Counseling Department at Hillsboro-Deering Middle School offers a range of services to support all students as they grow through their early adolescent years. The middle school years--the bridge between elementary school and high school--represent a time of dynamic and rapid growth for our students, and our goal is to provide support and resources to help them successfully navigate the many changes they face during these years.

    School counseling services include crisis intervention, short-term skills-based counseling support, classroom-based lessons on topics ranging from stress management skills to teen mental health to early career exploration, and consultation with teachers, caregivers and outside service providers. 

    If you have concerns about your child and would like to speak to a school counselor, please contact Mr. Bagtaz at (603)464-1120 ext. 1288.
