Welcome to The Madeira Middle School Guidance page!
As a school counselor I work with students, parents, teachers, and administrators to ensure that every student maximizes their potential at Madeira Middle School.
Middle School years can be a challenge but they also can be wonderful—learning new things, discovering who you are as a person, and meeting every day challenges that come your way independently are all things students this age experience.
At MMS I meet with students individually or in small groups to address academic, social emotional or personal concerns. I also meet with teacher teams on a regular basis. If you have a question or concern please do not hesitate to contact me at 561 5555, ext. 3537 or email@example.com.
If we work together we can make these “tough” years rewarding years as well.

Use your planner, teacher web pages and Progress Book
Scan your planner and come with a plan
Check off assignments as you complete them
Have a set time for homework every evening
Be an active learner: take notes, read aloud, write down questions, highlight, draw diagrams, ask yourself questions as you do your work
Stop studying in enough time to allow yourself to get a good night's sleep
Pack your backpack and lunch the night before; gather any supplies or things that need signed the night before as well
Test Taking Tips:
Organize and review notes, readings, and handouts a few days prior to the test; do not wait until the night before!
If something is confusing ask for help ahead of time
Identify key vocabulary words, formulas, dates, etc; memorize them and practice their spelling
Predict the questions; make yourself a list of questions to study from
Use flashcards to practice; have a friend or family member review with you
Think positively; you've studied--you know it, you'll do well!
During the test: look over the entire test first so you can manage your time, don't spend too much time on one question (write down an answer and then circle it so you know to come back later), read the directions carefully, pay attention to key words (never, always, only, all), go over the entire test before handing it in
