The Ocean City School District understands the importance of maintaining and supporting the mental health of our students. Sound mental health leads to better student attendance, engagement and academic performance. It also allows students to handle the natural ups and downs of life and to reach their full potential.

The District offers school-based counseling to assist students with stress management, coping and social skills, anger management, conflict resolution, and strategies to deal with grief and loss. When needed, the school counselor may also refer a student to outside professionals if school-based counseling is not sufficient to meet a student’s or a student’s family’s needs.
