Helen cox was a good high school. They had alot of clubs,teams, and activities to be apart of. Helen cox was fun when it came to fun friday event and basketball games. Also proms were very fun and exciting! Helen cox could have done better in academics by more tutoring programs and teachers that care more about the students.

I like my school because it has some really cool teachers who make the lessons interesting and really make you want to work hard. I like school because I get to do things that can't do at home and I love seeing my friends.
I would change the he fact that students should NOT have 3 months off in the summer. Students lose a lot of knowledge and understanding when they are gone that long. Students should have frequent breaks, though - all work and no play really is detrimental.
Helen cox high school is a great school the teachers are great the discipline staff they some cool people. They make sure u learn. Every time you falling a class the teacher call you on the side and let you know that you are falling and what you need to do the fix that, if that don’t work then the counselor going to call you and talk to you about it . Helen cox is really a great school i learned in that school.
