Student Support Counseling

Counseling Offered at Muir

Our Student Support Counselor will be facilitating some counseling groups for students to learn coping skills to help them with social/friendship issues (making positive connections); emotional self-care (how to cope with emotions, problem solving, etc.); making positive decisions in school (staying on task in class, following directions, working in groups, etc.).  If you would like your child to participate in any of these groups or if your child would like to see a counselor at school, please contact our student support counselor, Ms. Ana Fierro-Estrada at (408) 535-6281, ext. 54402.  Our counseling support also counts with counselor interns from Almaden Valley Counseling who can meet with students individually and/or group.
