Welcome to Northwestern Middle School Guidance
Thank you for visiting the Northwestern Middle School Guidance Web Page. My name is Miss Heather Racine, and this is my fifth year at Northwestern Middle School; however, this is my eighth year at the corporation! I was previously the school counselor at Northwestern Elementary and Howard Elementary. Through this website, I hope to provide information to students, parents, and other visitors that will help to navigate the many joys and challenges of the teenage years. Look around for information on helping teens grow academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally. Thank you for visiting!
