West Carroll Primary School has a School Counseling Program to support students in experiencing school success. The counselor works with students individually, in small groups, and in the classrooms. Each classroom receives developmental school counseling lessons during the course of the school year. The counselor helps students develop coping skills, solve problems, learn study skills, and build friendships.

West Carroll Primary School has one full-time counselor. Mrs. Baisden can be reached at [email protected] or 815-273-7747 ext. 1504.
