    "St Helen, like any school, is not perfect. Schools are challenged with constantly keeping up with the very best in education. We know, we've tried a couple in this area and beyond. And none of them measure up to St. Helen Catholic School. 93% Of the students at St Helen test at or ABOVE average in national standardized testing! What other school does that? If fact, 2 (two) St. Helen graduates recently took Valedictorian honors and 2 SEPARATE schools in the area! Don't mistake academia for money - this is not a rich kids' school - MANY families receive financial aid. It is indeed, a Catholic school so Christian values are incorporated into every aspect of the students' education, from curriculum, to recess, to lunch and sports. So what are the down sides you ask? There are a couple middle school issues (teacher, programming) that need to be addressed, but the administration is aware and they are working on this. One thing is for sure: Your child will have core values on which to stand, a solid education, and a well rounded perspective when they leave here."

    "The negative reviews are very interesting reading indeed. I cannot say that I have had the same experience at all. My kids are still in the lower grades, oldest is in 3rd. We have been at the school for 4 years and have been very impressed with how well our kids are doing and how much they enjoy the school. The ONLY negative that I can point out is not so much a fault of the school. There is only 1 class per grade. This has advantages and disadvantages. Everybody knows each other, including the parents and this can be a big plus. But if a child has difficulty with a classmate, it can be hard for them to "move on" and find other friends. Is this limitation in social opportunity a big deal? I don't know but with a 3rd grader just entering the years of playground politics, I wonder. I can see where there are some cliques of parents but why should I care? It's the same everywhere, I don't send my kids to school for my social benefit, and I certainly haven't seen groups of adult friends acting overly exclusionary or snobbish. By and large I find everybody, especially including the faculty and staff, to be extremely approachable, receptive and friendly."

    "For a private school I expected higher academic standards. Sometimes my child had a very good teacher, but more than one teacher should not have been teaching. Our concerns as parents regarding the quality of some of the teachers were shuffled aside by the principal as irrelevant. The last few years have been very disappointing, no better and sometimes worse than public school. We kept our child at St. Helen mostly for the friendships, and sometimes we wonder if it would have been better for our child's social and intellectual development to have switched to public school several years ago. As far as spiritual development is concerned, there is the appropriate emphasis one would expect in a Catholic school. But spiritual development alone will not get the kids into a good college."

    "Saint Helen's is a truly wonderful school. We are in our second year and I can not think of one negative. The teachers and staff show love and kindness and teach the children gospel values. Respect for others as well as yourself is what has really stood out. I am so happy to be a part of this school and am happy to say my child will be attending all the way thru 8th and know he will be carrying the love and knowledge he has learned for his entire life."

    "I feel like the words I choose will in no way measure up to the beauty of this school, but I will try. St. Helen is a choice we made a long time ago for our three children and it is the best decision we have ever made. I could go on and on about the quality of the teachers, staff, curriculum and Catholic standards, but those have already been well express. Our litmus test? Our three children. I have seen them shaped into compassionate, kind, respectful, honest young men and women. I will admit, at first my husband and I were not sure if the sacrifice would outweigh the benefit when it came to choosing Catholic schools for our children, but St. Helen has exceeded expectations we did not even realize were important to us until we saw them live out in our children. Not only are we sure they are prepared educationally for the world in front of them, we now know that they are more than prepared spiritually, emotionally and morally. Of course we are the first teachers of our children. St. Helen has enriched and assisted our family teachings in beautiful ways that we see come to light every day. Is it worth the sacrifice? A million times over."
