  • Academic Advisement

    AISD and Aubrey Middle School counselors have access to your classes, your grades and extracurricular activities. We use this global view of your education to help you see the big picture when it comes to planning for your future. Although we play a role in this process, it is up to you to make sure you get the college and career guidance you need.                            

    Age appropriate career decisions and planning occur on all of our campuses. Students are encouraged to share their interests and goals with us. The more we know about you, the more we can help. Here are some of the many ways school counselors can help you.                               

    Academic Advising                                  

    When we meet to talk about classes, we will discuss your favorite subjects and classes and your academic plans and goals. We will also discuss how you are doing in your classes.  We will use this information to help you plan your middle and high school class schedule and help you to plan for your future career goals.                        

    We are available to discuss:                          

    • The classes you need to complete and course selections                          
    • Middle and High School class requirements
    • Possible College & Career plans and match  your academic and career goals                           
    • Getting the help you need if you’re struggling in class                             
    • Taking classes and participating in activities that will challenge you                                 
    • Discuss colleges that match your academic and career goals.      

    College & Career Planning                            

    • The counselor's office can help with planning for your future in several ways:                               
    • Self-assessments using career exploration software (Tests that reveal students’ strengths & interests)   
    • College & Career fair                         
    • Scheduling presentations from colleges and industry professionals                                                                          

    Counseling                         

    If you have a problem in your personal life, don't try to tackle it alone. Visit your school counselor at AMS. Counselors can speak with you about it or tell you where you can get help. School counselors can talk about things like how to handle your parents getting divorced, friendship issues, how to deal with strong emotions and more!
