• Welcome to the Guidance and Counseling Site

         We hope you find it a convenient and useful resource.  The tabs you see to the left were created to streamline information that is helpful for you: the students and parents of Barnesville High.  We will be updating information on these topics frequently throughout the year.    




    Now, here's a little about me.  



    Hi! My name is Kyle Gylland and I am the school counselor for grades 7 through 12 at Barnesville High School and am beginning my 27th year here.  Prior to Barnesville, I was at Norman County West and Mora Public Schools.  I completed my master's degree in school guidance and counseling, through NDSU, in 1995. In addition, I taught social studies, coached basketball, track and field and cross-country. Currently, I teach driver education outside of the school day.  My wife, Jennifer, teaches senior high vocal music and we have four children who have graduated from Barnesville Public Schools.  I really enjoy getting to know students and helping them as they move through junior high, high school and on to life after graduation!


    Current Counseling Intern:

    Hello! My name is Noah Brenden. I am a school counseling student at MSUM. I am excited to be interning in Barnesville with Mr. Gylland during the 2019-2020 school year. I grew up in Rothsay, MN and went to the University of Jamestown for my bachelor’s degree. I love playing, coaching, and watching all kinds of sports. I also enjoy playing board games and card games in my free time. I am excited to be here and get the opportunity to work with the students and staff at Barnesville High School!
