Moscow - School Report Question and Answers

What personal or academic counseling resources are available at this school? Is there a dedicated college counselor at the school? Is he/she familiar with universities worldwide?

There are two counselors for Elementary School, one for Middle and two for High (I believe.) The High School counselors serve as the college admissions counselors as well. I assume they are fairly knowledgeable, I haven't heard of any problems. - Jan 2021

A+ The middle school counselor especially is very proactive.His door is always open.He has organized discussion groups/presentations on common middle school challenges.Good email communication.Good concern over individual students. - Dec 2012

A+ actually. This was a notable strength at the school. Although I can't really say at the high school level as it didn't come up for us. So can't say about career advising. They did a career test on kids at 9th grade. My son said it was fun enough, but that's about it. Maybe they'd have been doing more in the upper high school years. - Nov 2012

The school has the usual guidance counselors but also a school psychologist which is a real luxury. This is our 4th international school and we've never had that before. It means psycho-educational testing can be done at school, rather than having to send kids to another country to have them done. That's a massive time and stress saver. - Aug 2010
