Counseling and Health

A counselor sits and talks with a student while seated in their office.

Social, emotional, and physical wellness are essential for students to achieve their academic potential. Westmark School employs two full-time Counselors and one full-time Nurse to ensure students feel confident, connected, healthy, and secure throughout the school day.

School Counselors

Two dedicated School Counselors offer short-term individual and group counseling services to nurture Westmark students’ social, emotional, and mental well-being. Referring to the latest research in neuroscience and understanding the unique challenges of students with language-based learning differences, the School Counselors provide targeted interventions and strategies to foster students’ overall growth and development. They also offer appropriate referrals to outside professionals and collaborate with external support services, ensuring that students receive comprehensive care and access to the resources they need. Westmark’s School Counselors aim to empower students, strengthen their resilience, and equip them with the tools they need to thrive academically and personally.

School Nurse

Westmark’s School Nurse is the primary liaison between the School, families, and medical agencies and officials. The nurse manages all students’ health and immunization records; tends to injuries and illnesses; oversees routine and special medical needs, from administering prescriptions to addressing other health conditions; and provides accurate and consistent communication to families throughout the school year.
