Gulliver believes in developing responsible citizens and lifelong learners. Our Counselors work with the students to cultivate a positive school and community culture of integrity, honesty and mutual respect. A distinctive feature of our Middle School is that a counselor is assigned to each grade level. The counselor stays with the students and families for 3 years (grades 6-8) allowing them to know and understand their students’ strengths and challenges.

Our Counselors are a personal resource for self-understanding and healthy development. They promote balance and resiliency as students move through pre-adolescence. Our Counselors support students academically, emotionally, behaviorally, and socially. They reinforce executive functioning skills, promote pro-social behaviors, and foster character development.

Gulliver understands that our students are most successful when all adults in their lives work together. Counselors partner with parents and faculty to positively impact and nourish each of our Middle School students.
