Vision and Mission


The vision of Roosevelt’s Counseling Department positions students to be high-achieving lifelong learners who are academically and technologically prepared for their careers and futures. Roosevelt students are compassionate members of society who are socially responsible and stand up for social justice. Students have a strong sense of self and purpose, value their emotional wellness, and are committed to their personal growth. Roosevelt students thrive in an environment that sparks their drive to be global citizens in the 21st Century world.



The mission of the Roosevelt Middle School Comprehensive Counseling Program is to support students in developing a positive sense of self in their academic, college/career, and social emotional lives. This includes utilizing a multi-tiered system of support to deliver counselor-facilitated curriculum, small and large group instruction and data-driven interventions to strengthen students' understanding in each domain. In partnership with students, families, and the community, Roosevelt school counselors foster an academic environment that sees the whole student and works collaboratively to reach their goals.
