Dr. Paul Nettle Middle School
School Counseling Department
Greetings from Guidance- Mrs. Crowley and Ms. Melillo
During the fall, Mrs. Crowley and Ms. Melillo will be working closely with the 8th grade students to prepare them for high school. We will be going into all 7th & 8th grade classes at the beginning of October to discuss the Haverhill Public Schools High School Options Guide. The High School Options Guide will be available on our website. If you prefer to have a paper copy, please send your child to Guidance and we’d be happy to provide them with a hard copy. If your child is going to apply to a private high school, please send in all the required documents with a Parent/ Guardian signature to authorize us to send out any and all academic records. These records include report cards from 7th and 8th Grade, as well as all standardized tests score reports (MCAS). Most schools also require a recommendation either from the Guidance Counselor and/or Teacher Recommendations. If this is the case, please make sure your child sees us in Guidance to receive a Student Questionnaire. We require at least a two week window to complete an application packet. Please contact us at 978-374-5792 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you have any questions.
