    Saint Helena has provided a firm foundation for building character. I have learned so much that I wouldn't have learned anywhere else. The teachers are patient and supportive and my classmates are always willing to help. I'll miss this school next year!

    St. Helena is a great community! The teachers are excellent and the school leadership is top notch. There are numberous opportunities to be involved in the community as a parent and for your children. I highly recommend this school not only as a parent but a former student as well.

    This is a great small school with dedicated teachers and a diverse high-achieving student body. The sense of community is strong and most classes are about 22 kids.

    St. Helena school combines an exceptional education with an indivual hands-on approach to learning and strengthening within a strong catholic community. The pricipal is exceptional and the teachers are dedicated. This is a must for parents to look in to (!

    Simply the best school in the south metro. The cost is fair for the ability and knowledge my children are given. Small classes dedicated teachers and staff. Great educational community even without the church...

    The school is wonderful. This school has excellent test scores (99% passing) small classes and a dedicated staff that knows all the students and parents by name. The students are engaged and highly excellerated as compared to the local public schools not to mention the affordability.
