Guidance & SAC
Middle school can be both a challenging and exciting time for students and their parents or guardians. To foster greater fulfillment and success in middle school, specially trained counselors are available to work with students in a variety of areas. These include (but are not limited to) solving conflicts, managing stress/anxiety, making and keeping friends, coping successfully with significant life changes, improving social skills, and more.
Each grade level at Mount Olive Middle School has its own school counselor. Beginning in grade 6, a class will be introduced to their specific counselor. That counselor will follow them through to graduation. This enables counselors to truly get to know the students and families they serve.
Counselors for 2023-2024 are determined by the first letter of the student's last name:
In addition to the grade specific counselors, the MO Middle School also utilizes a Student Assistance Coordinator. The Student Assistance Coordinator (SAC) serves as an information resource for substance abuse, mental health, and related intervention services in the district. The SAC also provides counseling and referral services to students, and collaborates with community service providers. Our SAC counselor is Megan Troup, who also serves as the school's Anti-Bullying Specialist.
