Welcome to Helen Keller Middle School Counseling Support Page


The goal to the HKMS Counseling Support team is to promote success and well being by working cooperatively working with students, parents, teachers, staff and the community. Each member of the HKMS counseling support team provides unique services within the HKMS community.
