School Psychological Services
Charlotte-Mecklenburg School (CMS) psychologists help students succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. We collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students. In addition, we work to strengthen connections between home and school.
About Our School Psychologists
Our school psychologists are mental health specialists who have advanced graduate degrees with training in both psychology and education. The preparation focuses on child development, the psychology of learning and behavior, curriculum and instruction, and skills in mental health and educational interventions. The North Carolina Department of Instruction licenses school psychologists, and some are recognized by the National Association of School Psychologists as Nationally Certified School Psychologists (NCSP). Additionally, there are several school psychologists who are certified by the state to conduct evaluations for students with traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
