The Mahtomedi Middle School counseling department is an integral part of the Mahtomedi School District. We use a developmental approach to provide comprehensive, data-driven counseling services to ALL students. Using this model, we foster academic success, social/emotional growth, and career exploration.  Our department serves as a link between students, parents, teachers, and administrators. We strive to build strong connections, and have the unique opportunity to guide students through the sometimes challenging years of adolescent development. We are excited to have this opportunity to work with your child as part of their educational team!

Our School
Mahtomedi Middle School provides programming to allow each student to find success academically, socially, and emotionally. Our curriculum provides students exploratory opportunities in a variety of curricular areas that provide career and college ready experiences: engineering, art, music, health, family and consumer science, phy-ed, and Spanish. Our experienced staff is focused on the social and emotional development of the early adolescent and provides small advisory groups and individual success coaching. Academic offerings include accelerated and honors courses in math, science, and language arts as well as support classes for those students who need extra attention in skill-building and time management. In addition to academic coursework, our students also have opportunities to engage and explore through our co-curricular offerings. Individual student attention is the strength of Mahtomedi Middle School.
