Helena-West Helena School District Reviews

The administrators and teachers want the students to have a good education. They make sure that every student is learning and grasping every concept to the best of their ability. Our school district wants all of us to be something in life. Although, there are some staff that don't care, others actually do. They make sure we are good in school and want us to be our best outside of it. Our district isn't the best, but they are helping us and bettering us for the real world. The dropout rate has declined, so obviously they are impacting our lives.

It alright for a public school. It just a typical high school experience. I am a senior here at this school and I do think there are much needed improvement to the school and the school board it self. They want us to got to college have a good paying life and at least have a stable lifestyle. They want that for all there students.
My experience overall was amazing. However, I did encounter a very bad problem with a teacher. I think what needs to change is more security on the confidential policy.
