GVMS School Counselors


We wanted to take a moment and share our list of school counselors again with the community. Please know that our counseling office is buzzing on a typical school day. Our counselors do an amazing job working through a multitude of issues with our students each and every school day. Our school counseling department's goal is to prepare your child to deal with social, emotional, and academic situations they will encounter in their middle school career and outside of the school atmosphere.

Please visit the GVMS Counseling website for self-care tips, coping strategies, and other helpful resources. Also, feel free to contact your child's new school counselors if you have any questions over the next few months. They will be available at certain points over the summer to help you work through any questions or concerns.

GVMS Chromebook Program Sign Up

All Students Will Receive a District Device

Starting this summer, every Garnet Valley Middle School students will receive a Chromebook to use at school and at home. In order for your child to receive his/her Chromebook, a parent/guardian must sign off on Garnet Valley’s Acceptable Use Policy, Chromebook Care, and decide if they would like to purchase insurance for the device. All middle school parents must complete this process for their child to receive a Chromebook.

There is NO charge for this Chromebook. However, if parents would like to purchase insurance for accidental damages, they now have the option to do so. So that we can offer families the lowest possible rate, Garnet Valley has partnered with Edvative, an educational non-profit, to assist with this program.

This insurance program is optional and offered to Garnet Valley families who want the peace of mind of having their child’s Chromebook insured for accidental damages for the 2020-2021 school year.
