Counseling & Restorative Practices

Counseling Support

All Bright Star students, from transitional kindergarten through 12th grade, have a counselor who knows them, their dreams, and their needs so that we can meet them.

At Rise Kohyang Middle School, our counselors also work collaboratively with the whole family to identify any unique barriers to learning our students may have, and we connect families with community partners that can provide the support our families may need.

Middle School Guidance

We know that middle school can be a challenging time of growth for adolescents, and at Rise Kohyang Middle School, we provide robust support so our students thrive. 

In addition to strong relationships, robust counselor support, and social-emotional curriculum, we also offer student mentorship programs and growth opportunities so our students can navigate middle school successfully.


Restorative Practices

All Rise Kohyang Middle School staff use restorative justice practices as an effective alternative to punitive responses to wrongdoing. Restorative practices bring people together in a safe and respectful space to promote dialogue, accountability, and a stronger sense of community. We support our students to come together to have restorative conversations, so that they have the opportunity to repair any harm that may have been caused.

“This is just an awesome school. It's an awesome place to be. It's a great community and you're going to feel welcomed and included. The opportunities are always there to grow.”
