    "School would get 5 stars if the tyrant second grade teacher would come to her senses and realize that her excessive disciplinary action's are not warranted for minor fractions such as missing signatures."

    "The second grade teacher need not to be teaching that grade. It seems she does not understand children that age. I agree with the other comment she is a dictator. The Principle needs to evaluate her teaching skill and do something about it."

    "My children have been enrolled in St. Helena for a few years. It is one of the few schools in the area (if not the only) which offers full day 3 year old, Pre-k and kindergarten. Since enrolling my kids, I have become disappointed and am now looking to remove them. The good is that the teachers are available & reachable. Also unlike other private schools, it is affordable & although encouraged, fundraising is not mandatory. There is a breakfast & after school program which for working parents is a plus. However, the school has room for improvement. Music & language is not offered. Also, the afterschool program is run by teens who (with the exception of a couple) are immature. The program itself is unorganized. Also parent involvement is scarce & not encouraged. With the exception of only 1 teacher during the years, I have been generally pleased with the staff. Yet, the prinicipal is unapproachable. I find him to be more comfortable around the children than with the adults. Most importantly the class sizes are too large (some have close to 40) & the work is not challenging enough. I fear that St. H does not have the environment to properly prepare my children for high school."

    "I think St Helena's school has a great academic program. Unfortunately the class size is to large (35+ children). When we first enrolled, there were two classes per grade. Then there were teacher layoffs and now there is one grade per class. The children had to suffer with the over crowdiness. There is only one math/science teacher for 6th - 8th grades. The principal has a open door policy, which is great and the teachers are available for early morning discussions. The guidance counselors and the Title 1 teachers are very supportive and offer great assistance. The afterschool program offers late pick up until 6:30, unfortunately there is not much guidance as the teen age counselors sit among themselves and don't interact with the kids. There needs to be more educational structure and adult supervision. (Homework assistance, roboitics team, math, reading or science clubs would be great) Also, there is no PTA where the parents could volunteer and assist with these programs."
