Welcome to the Greater Johnstown Middle School Guidance Department!

We are here to support student’s academic, social, physical and emotional development.  Early adolescence is a unique opportunity in the life of an individual.  There is rapid physical growth, greater ability to analyze and integrate new information and the expansion of social relationships.  This is also the time when the youngster better defines themselves.  


We promote collaboration among students, parents, teachers and community agencies to ensure a positive educational experience.  


Through collaboration with local agencies we are able to work with students who need intensive interventions through programs or counseling both inside and outside of the school setting.


Please contact us regarding any questions or concerns regarding your student’s needs within the school setting.
