Helena Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Helena has the best schools!! We don’t have to worry about traffic because my kids ride the bus. The teachers and staff go out of their way for my children. The school isn’t perfect and can do better but many schools are that way. I know my children are loved and cared for. They both love going to school there. They had a choice to go to my school and they chose to stay in their school.

The school is Okay at best because the school traffic is TERRIBLE and the way they encourage you to drive is ineffective! The police are RUDE and does a HORRIBLE job at directing traffic and allow some cars or people they know to turn at stop signs to go directly to the school while forcibly directing others to sit in a long-line hold-up traffic to get into a car line that is back up by two traffic lights. This does not give consideration for any other drivers on the road trying to go any where. They seem to like to keep traffic on the road instead of encouraging cars to go directly to their destination (the school) especially seeing there is no line to turn and drop off your student. Instead they have you drive an additional seemly half mile to go back to where you started. My Kindergartner is not growing academically at this school it is seemly just play time for him. We feel like we are wasting his precious time at this school and the only time he is learning anything new is at home. He should be so much further than just doing things my 3 year old knows??? I encourage parents to do more research before making a large move to send your child to this school. I have not had a problem with the Administration. I like the principal however my child is not growing academically at this school. I am about to home school my children and take them out of the public school system. This seems to be the best decision for my family.

My husband and I are so disapointed and suprised at our terrible experience at HES. The whole reason we moved to Helena was because we had heard nothing but wonderful things about the growing school system. To explain this futher, when we moved to Helena we weren't even pregnant with our now six year old....we planned many years in advance!We bent over backwards for the school and did everything that we could to help them with our spirited son, but after all is said and done, we are homeschooling him. Our six year old made it 20 days in Kindergarten before he was suspended for not being able to follow directions. Yes, our six year old was suspended...a most ridiculous notion. It was evident that his very green teacher was incapable of dealing with him and he spent little time in the classroom or with his peers. We refused to let our son be a "test subject" for this brand new teacher, but HES would not move him to another room with an experienced teacher. I can't believe that they let this happen. HES failed our son and we are unsure if we can trust public school ever again.It has been 11 weeks since we removed our son from Kindergarden at HES. In what little time has passed, our son is currently studying 1st grade and he is reading at a 2nd grade level. If that doesn't speak volumes to how little his "teacher" was actually teaching, then I don't know what does.Not every child learns in the same way. True educators know this and do everything in their power to help every single child succeed. I pray that what happened to us and to our son never happens to another child at HES. He is missing out on so much because of how they handled things and my heart hurts for him.

I was unsure, uncertain, and nervous going into my oldest's first year of Kindergarten. Registration was chaotic despite them trying to organize it but I was very very happy as the school year began and progressed. I could not have asked for a better teacher and a better kindergarten year! From what I hear most of the kindergarten teachers are amazing. I cannot speak for them or any of the teachers at other grade levels, but ours was absolutely amazing and my daughter also loved all of the teachers and coaches who taught the specials. Some of the staff are intimidating and sometimes almost confrontational or cold at times, but for the most part we tried to understand and let it roll off. While I see that those moments could be needed with parents I do think at times their approach could be different. All said they are very safe and care greatly about the kids.
