My experience at Helena High has been hardly anything but positive. The teachers and students that inhabit our halls are unique and amazing people - and our school offers a wide variety of different interests that appeal to all different types of people. Helena High School makes sure that its students are well-educated, but more importantly, happy and healthy in their endeavors at their four years here.

Transferring into Helena High School for my final year of high school was a bit overwhelming. I got lost quite a few times before I managed to memorize the layout of the labyrinth of a school. What I was most excited for was the availability of AP classes. The teachers and administration often go out of their way to make the students know that they are cared. Since the school is one of the few public high schools in the area it has substantial funding and thus a lot of equipment for the classes: books for literature, chemicals for chemistry, weights and circuits for physics, and even the technology for testing DNA presence in medical classes. Overall the school is exceptional in many different ways.
I have gone to school in the Helena School District for all of my post-secondary education. I went to Broadwater Elementary, Hawthorne Elementary, Jim Darcy Elementary, C.R. Anderson Middle School, and will be graduating from Capital High School in 2017. I believe our community of education administrators do a great job. Every school that I've attended, I've have teachers that are passionate about what they do, but truly strive to catapult their students' education. Almost every one of the teachers I've had would remember my name and something about me no matter how long ago I had them. I will forever appreciate the education I've received in this town. The only thing I may have noticed to be a set back is the gap in level of learning we have here compared to schools around the country. Programs such as Common Core can be helpful for our schools in the long run and help students be more college ready.
