Welcome to Marston Middle School’s Counseling Website!
Marston takes pride in its counseling and guidance program. Services offered are social and emotional, academic, career and group counseling and guidance. Counseling can be on a one-time basis or on a continuing basis. In addition, the counselor can assist in referrals to outside agencies. Students wishing to see the counselor should use the sign-up sheet in the Counseling Center. Parents should feel free to call with any questions regarding their child.
If you have an immediate concern about your child's mental health, please call the San Diego Access and Crisis Line at 1-800-479-3339.
