    Since they revamped their program reduced size to 500 students it has very good leadership personalized instruction for the students. Very high success rate of placing students into college.

    This school is a joke- i have no idea how it got a rating of 7 with GreatSchools. The vice-principal runs the school rather than the actual principal. The school spends all it's money on the ag department and shiny new buildings rather than books and academically related things. The classes aren't challenging- even the "IB/AP" classes. The entire IB program is a joke. There is no diversity at all and the clique problem is ridiculous. I haven't met one student that has graduated St. Helena High School satisfied with their experience. All in all your child will probably hate attending this school take it from someone who KNOWS.

    Nice small school nestled in the Napa Valley. Places heavy emphasis on the ag department more than other areas. No computer science department but 3 classes for ag mechanics. Students can be cliquey more so than other schools. A decent school at best with a few great teachers many being replaced by newcomers.

    Great school. Teachers are very involved and very caring. Many restorations are being done and the school looks nicer every year. High graduation rate and a great public school.

    Small very personal school with building academics! You are very lucky if your child can attend.
