Counselor's Corner

Counselor Corner

Counselors are student advocates. Our counselors at Bancroft Middle School prioritize the well-being of our students and ensure our students are placed in the best academic program to meet their educational needs and interests. Our counselors also assist with communication between parents, students, and teachers, and monitor student academic progress to seek resources that can help with any issues that might be interfering with learning. Bancroft students get to know their grade-level counselor well as counselors move with students each year.
