Welcome to Central Magnet School Counseling Office! We want to provide information concerning academics, testing, college, career planning, and resources for our students and families. The school counselors are committed to the academic, social, and emotional development of each student. Every CMS student is assigned to a school counselor who will support him or her throughout their entire career at CMS based on their last name. If you have any questions or concerns contact us.
We hope all our CMS students are staying safe and well during this time. Feel free to check in with your counselor if you need anything as we are checking email during normal school hours. We also have a link to community resources on the Counseling Resources tab. We will also post weekly thoughts for reflection. Stay positive!
