Welcome to the Helen Keller Middle School website. I hope that you find the website to be a wealth of information as you learn about the many exciting activities and events occurring in our school.

Helen Keller Middle School is committed to educating our students to attain academic success, to think critically and creatively and to act responsibly. We accomplish this through a diverse and challenging curriculum with school, home and community collaboration, in a safe and nurturing environment. We are a community of dedicated staff members committed to the unique needs of young adolescents, and we believe that the love of learning is fostered through differentiated, rigorous and engaging instruction. Staff and students feel safe to explore new ideas and collaborate in a climate where they are valued and respected, and where they honor the differences among people in order for students to achieve their individual potential in a global community.

The middle school learner has diverse learning needs with wide ranging interests, learning styles, academic strengths, and areas for growth. We pride ourselves on our understanding of the complex developmental needs of the middle school child and the necessary measures that we purposefully take each day to help every student achieve success in the classroom and experience greater confidence facing today's world.

Helen Keller Middle School has a rich tradition of academic excellence that also recognizes the importance of nurturing the social and emotional development of middle school children. We aim for academic excellence, high achievement, and building positive experiences for all students throughout the year. Through the extraordinary efforts of our staff, students, and parents, we work collaboratively to create a positive climate for learning and provide a stimulating, safe, and attractive environment for our children to grow.

I am excited to continue this journey and thank the Easton community for its continued support of our school. My office door is always open. Parents, please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have.
