    HES is the BEST!! Words cannot begin to describe what a blessing the Teachers Faculty Counselors Specialty Teachers (Art Computer Music Library) even the Cafeteria & Janitorial staff have been during my son's 1st year of school. Now he's registered for 1st grade & we have full confidence that this year will be just as wonderful as last year!! Thank You HES(

    I have had two children go through the Helena Schools and was very pleased with the results. I just want our schools to have the tools to teach the kids as they did when my children were there. Our State has cut out all funds to the classroom and they have no way to buy supplies they need and this would really help them. Every teacher needs a fighting chance.

    This school cares about it's students. They are always sending notes home to inform parent on what they have learned and what they plan to learn. The kids are always to excited to see what will happen tomorrow.

    My Daughter has been at Helena Elementary for 2 years now and we have loved it! Looking forward to little sister starting in 2011. I could not ask for a better education for my children and the teachers are amazing!!!

    We were apprehensive about sending our daughter to a public school with a special need but the teachers and staff there really embraced the need and meet the need resulting in my daughter loving school to the point of wanting to be a teacher. I have always been taught that teaching kids is not the difficult part. Inspiring them to want to learn is. The teachers and staff there have accomplished this.

    Both of my kids attended Helena Elementary and received an amazing education. They have consistently made excellent grades in the Intrrmediate school much of that is because of the foundation they received at the elementary level.

    Our granddaughter has blossomed this year at HES! She loves school and is learning things that are much more than just reading riting and rithmatic! Every staff member cares about each child at the school and it shows in the attitudes of the children. They want to learn and be a part of such a positve place. Thank you.

    Besides my child receiving an outstanding education which by the way surpassed the education she was receiving in a private christian school? I have been amazed at how much she has grown an dblossomed upon entering Helena Elementary! I was so impressed by how friendly the ENTIRE staff was during registration and the first day of school. I was an emotional wreck and every Teacher we passed hugged me and assured me she would be well taken care of. I couldn't believe how involved the Principle was and her efforts to get to know each parent and child. Her Teacher has not only taught her the required curriculum but has encouraged her protected her and provided her with life lessons outside of day to day requirements. The function of the school is so smooth to include the carpool line! I am so pleased the school welcomes and encourages parent involvement and goe sabove and beyond in providing us with vital information regarding our students! I also love the extra-curricular activities provided within the school! I cannot say enough about this amazing school. In fact we have grown out of our house but refuse to move until we can find a home that will allow us to stay in the Helena school district.
