School Reviews

Our two children (age 8 and 11) have attended St Helen since Kindergarten. Neither my wife or I attended Catholic school and we were not raised Catholic either. Thus far we are very happy with St Helen. The teachers are very loving towards the children. The kids who attend are generally well-behaved. The school buildings are in good condition. Our kids receive homework on 3 or 4 days a week, which we like. They are scoring faily well on standardized tests. There are plenty of activity choices for students. Our kids receive religious instruction and attend a church service weekly which is structured to children. The priests are wonderful with the kids. The only fault is there is no playground equipment, but this is typical of catholic schools for some reason.
