    "Helms is one of the smaller schools in at the area. My daughter attends the spanish emersion program. We speak absolutely no spanish at home, but that has not been an issue. The new principle is great. Helms has a very loving and caring atmosphere. All the teachers and admins know the kids names. My daughter has learned so much since she started!"

    "This school is a study in potential. It has a more nurturing environment than other elementary schools that attracted me initially. They have a good amount of highly educated and prepared teachers. What is lacking is organization. Parents are not communicated with in a timely fashion. HISD keeps adding to the burdens of everyday administration taking focus away from providing the best education and teacher coalition. The students though do come home speaking, reading, and writing in two languages at a young age while still finding time for math and science, so the program I have a lot of faith in. Other HISD elementary schools in our area seem to be able to present a more communicative, peaceful environment and don't see to be playing "catch up" constantly."

    "I love Helms. This is my daughter s 4th year there & all I can say are positive things. My child perform everything thing a normal child would at this age, in two languages, in some areas, more. It impressed me that her teachers began helping her in problem areas as a preventative measure. Teachers didn t wait for the problem to persist. No, there aren t extra curricular activities; what elementary has them? Helms goal is to educate the whole child. This includes concentrating on helping students succeed in the three R s, science and social studies well as. At the same time, Helms educates its parents so that he/she can help his/her student as well. It is unrealistic to want Helms to participate in EVERYTHING and still keep the same level of excellence in learning. Helms parents are involved. There are different levels of involvement, but the opportunity is there."
