Heskett Middle School counselors are available to assist with questions regarding class scheduling, career choices, social problems, and crisis situations. School counselors provide opportunities for students to meet individually or in groups to discuss feelings, attitudes, goals, and problems in a confidential and supportive environment.

School counselors confer with parents/guardians and teachers regarding the academic progress of students. School counselors provide materials and help students and their families learn about scheduling, standardized testing, careers and the transitions between leaving elementary school and coming to middle school, as well as the transition between Heskett Middle School and Bedford High School. 



HMS Counseling Department Philosophy

Through a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate school counseling program, counselors work as a team with school staff, parents, and community to create a caring, supportive environment where middle school students can achieve academic success. Middle school counselors foster the academic development of every student and their right and ability to achieve academic success. The professional middle school counselors hold a master’s degree and are responsible for implementing a comprehensive school counseling program that is data driven and evaluated annually. The counselors follow ASCA ethical guidelines and standards.
