    "I was a teacher at Helen Hox for a month, and social clicks and popularity contests are more important to the principal than actually ensuring that the students do well. The discipline is a joke--students can be suspended upward of 12 times in one semester and remain at school, while teachers are struggling to control classrooms because difficult students always know there are no real consequences to their actions. Teachers are told that student behavior is our problem, and not the fault of the student. In some way, this may be true--if we don't have high expectation for student behavior, then students will behave badly. Clearly, the current principle cares more about the SPS score than expelling students that need to be removed from the school. Behavior problems are interfering with the education of other students, constantly causing class disruptions and a loss of class time. The teachers who are unprofessional and curse at students are praised for their "good class management," but in reality they are mentally and emotionally abusing the students. I have faith in the students of HC, but I don't think anything will get better until this administration leaves."

    "This is my second year at Helen Cox and I love the school. Most of the teachers really do put forth effort to make sure the students understand what the teacher is trying to teach. There are many activities to get into at the school. I am in JROTC at the school and I like it. Some of the students act like animals and do not know when to act right. Also, the school could use more funding because I think the school is being cheap. Plus it needs to be bigger because more students are coming here. The school tries to reward the good students and punish the bad, though. So if you or a child of yours does not go to this school, you have no right to say anything negative about it."

    "The school is horrible, The teachers and staff are impersonal with their student. The school system is not balanced. Every class has at the least 30 students in it, as there is not enough teachers. I would recomend moving to a differnet district rather than go to this school. Dont allow or let your child come here. It will be the first step towards a life full of failure."

    "This is my second year teaching at Helen Cox High School and I have had all positive experiences. The administration is wonderful. Mrs. Edwards, the principal, is extremely accessible, student and teacher friendly, and has an amazing vision for the school. All teachers are working towards the success of our students. Most of the teachers have a genuine love and concern for the students and have a vested interest in their success. If this is your district, or you are considering moving into this school district, you need not worry about where your child will attend school. Helen Cox, although a relatively new high school, is growing in academics, athletics and overall student achievement. I am proud to be a part of Helen Cox and to have Mrs. Edwards as our Principal."
