The mission of the Office of Psychological Services is to enhance the mental health and educational competence of all children in the Prince George's County Public Schools.

What is a School Psychologist?

School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally.  They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home and school, and the community for all students.  School psychologists are specially trained to link mental health to learning and behavior.

What do School Psychologists do?

School Psychologists Work With Students to:

  • Provide counseling, instruction and mentoring for those struggling with social, emotional, and behavioral problems
  • Increase achievement by assessing barriers to learning and determining the best instructional strategies to improve learning
  • Promote wellness and resilience by reinforcing communication and social skills, problem solving, anger management, self-regulation, self-determination and optimism
  • Enhance understanding and acceptance of diverse cultures and backgrounds
