 Summit OnSite

River Trail is excited to join other North Fulton secondary schools in the "Summit OnSite" program!  The mental health/wellness of our students is as important as their physical and academic well-being, and we don't want appointment-scheduling to be a hindrance.  Katie Beals, a therapist from the Summit Counseling Center, is available for mental health counseling sessions at River Trail with RTMS students during the school day on Thursdays.  For more information or to make an appointment, please see this FAQ.  For contact information on other off-site therapists, please contact Ms. Graff, Ms. Bartley, or Mr. Peterson in our counseling office.
