  3. 3. PHILOSOPHY Because of continual changes in the home, the community, and the school, the counselors at Brecksville-Broadview Heights Middle School must provide a comprehensive, developmental program which is an equal partner with other essential school programs. We provide a carefully planned program which helps our students acquire developmentally-appropriate skills. Although we respond to immediate problems and conflicts involving our students, we embrace a proactive approach to our students’ counseling and guidance needs .
