Meet Our Counselors

Meet the amazing and dedicated Abbott Middle School wellness team! Students can reach out to their counselors for questions, guidance, and support.

Students with an Individual Education Program who exhibit the need for a higher level of care may be recommended to receive Educationally-Related Mental Health Services.
