FRED LYNN MIDDLE SCHOOL
BELIEFS, PHILOSOPHY & MISSION STATEMENTS
2016 - 2017
BELIEFS & PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT
The Fred Lynn School Counseling Department’s mission statement aligns with the Fred Lynn Middle School Mission Statement:
Fred Lynn Middle School educates the whole child for a global world.
The school promotes:
- Internationally recognized high expectations in academics.
- A safe and healthy environment.
- Connection to the global society through foreign language study.
- Instruction to meet the needs of diverse learners.
- The Prince William County Public Schools curriculum and Virginia Standards of Learning
Counseling services are centered in a belief that at the core of being a student is an individual growing through their experiences. The counseling program celebrates each person’s uniqueness and supports students as they grow personally, socially, and in their own understanding of who they are. This growth process is supported through instruction in problem solving, increasing awareness of self, and fostering an ability to plan for their future.
The mission of the Fred M. Lynn Middle School Counseling Department aligns with the school mission to prepare our students to “positively confront and resolve challenges with social presence and academic proficiency.” The Fred M. Lynn School Counseling Department is dedicated to working with all stakeholders to meet the academic, career, and personal/social needs of all students. The professional school counseling staff will create a safe and supportive counseling environment and will provide a data driven, developmentally appropriate program to help all students meet their fullest potential.
“United to Provide a Quality Education for Everyone!”
