My experience with the St. Helens High School hasn't been all that great because kids who had troubled youth caused issues with not only teachers not being understanding of their students but not supporting their ideas to help them succeed in life. The whole curricular system at the high school caused problems for many students to make their goals of having good grades or understanding the classes they take without failing. I didn't get to graduate from the high school but I found Plymouth high school and they have helped me more than SHHS ever did. I genuinely feel like my chance is now, to strive forward with my best and hardest attitude, and to help others in the ways that I was left in the dark about.

I like how this school gives you the opportunity to explore your different interests. You can be in all kinds of different classes. The band and choir programs are amazing. Most of the teachers actually care about the students and look out for them. The staff always try to look out for the students and work on making things better for them. It is an old building and there are many updates that need to be made, but they are working on it and trying to fix it.
While St. Helens School District is often making changes in order to better their faculty and the experience of their students, I feel that they are making changes in the wrong places. Rather than repairing the high school, which needs work done to repair molding/leaking as well as other cosmetic and safety changes, a new campus for Columbia County Education Campus as well as a new middle school. They also struggle with connecting with students and supporting them when it comes to mental health, as we had two students commit suicide last year, as well as a former student. One of these suicides was also left unaddressed by the school, which seems wrong to me considering that the other student who died was much more popular and was recognized and mourned by the school.
