Welcome to Ordean East Middle School!

We have 3 School Counselors that service approximately 1100 students 6-8th grade. We strive to follow ASCA Standards as much as possible. 

According to ASCA (American School Counselor Association), there should be 1 School Counselor per 250 Students (K - 12)

The ASCA Student Standards: Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success describe the knowledge, attitudes and skills students need to achieve academic success, college and career readiness and social/emotional development. The standards are based on a survey of research and best practices in student achievement from a wide array of educational standards and efforts.
