Guidance Department

Welcome to the counseling department of Catherine and Count Basie, Middle School 72! My name is Ms. Lee and as the school counselor, I am here to fulfill a variety of needs to ensure your child can thrive. Some of these activities include grief therapy, individual and group counseling, career planning, high school articulation, and college readiness. My role is to prepare students for success - not just within the walls of our school, but in life. Together we can ensure that by the end of their middle school career, your child is the best student that they can be! Feel free to contact me any time at or (718)-723-6200 - ext. 3051.
