Counseling and Wellness
The Miller Creek School District has made a clear commitment to having a comprehensive counseling department and supports counseling (academic, social, and emotional) in the school setting.
Miller Creek Counselors provide daily counseling for all students individually and in groups, and act as a referring person to other agencies. Students may request an appointment to see a counselor through the office, a teacher, email or by directly dropping by the counseling offices during breaks or passing periods. Students are assigned a counselor by last name and by grade level and will stay with the same counselor throughout their time at Miller Creek.
