The Danny Jones Middle School Counseling are pleased to offer several small group counseling opportunities throughout the year to assist students to reach their full personal and academic potential. The groups are usually six to eight sessions meeting weekly/biweekly. The groups are typically closed ended groups, meaning that students are not added to existing groups (after the groups have begun) unless there are extreme extenuating circumstances and group dynamics allow for new members. All groups are confidential. Students are considered for group participation based on teacher/administrator recommendations and parent request.

Time and Duration

Groups will typically meet during the school day(unless before or after school works) for 4-6 sessions approximately 30 minutes.


Participation is voluntary and student confidentiality will be addressed and respected.

Possible Small groups:(created based on sign up. We prefer groups to be 5-6 people)

Changing Families and Divorce

If you are interested in having your son/daughter participate in any group, please email one of our counselors.
