School Guidance Counselor - Peter Buehner

Phone #866 - 2350, Extension 203

The middle school years are a crucial time in the growth and development of students. It can be extremely challenging for kids to make the bridge between being a child and working toward becoming a more independent young adult. Developing a good relationship with your student's school staff and administration can go a long way to help your child navigate their way. OMS School Guidance Counselor, Peter Buehner, is here to help facilitate that process.

Peter's ties to the Orono community date back to the 80's when he was an undergraduate student. Peter holds a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and Physical Education and a Master's degree in School Counseling, both from the University of Maine. He joined the staff at Orono Middle School in the 2015-2016 school year. Prior to that, he was a school counselor at Orono High School.

He can be reached by email or phone.
