• Counseling Office

    The Counseling Program at Truman Middle School is dedicated to helping meet both the educational and emotional needs of our students. We believe that all children are unique, that all children are deserving of respect and dignity, and that all children deserve equal access to education. Our goal is to encourage growth and development in each student through the delivery of the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance Program.
