St Helena School Ratings & Reviews

February 13, 2019 Submitted by a parent
St. Helena's has experienced, dedicated teachers who go the extra mile to help students excel. Disciplinary issues are dealt with immediately and effectively. The parent community is warm and you can always find someone to send you a copy of a homework sheet when your child forgets homework at school. I've found that parents who complain about the school are the same people who complain no matter what accommodation is made for them anyway. As parents, we appreciate the many clubs and activities the kids have a chance to participate in, including sports teams. Aside from academics, charity and fairness are emphasized. The parish church is attached to the school, and we also appreciate that the student body attends Mass once a month for First Friday Mass and also to pray the Rosary as a school. Our kids have been a part of St. Helena's for years and we're very happy with this school.

This school is safe, well maintained and clean. The principal is dedicated. The teachers are wonderful and caring. A close knit community that are all working together for the students.

I would definitely recommend this school! My child's formal education has taken place at St. Helena School and I am very satisfied with the continued progress that has been achieved over the years. The school continually strives to add the latest technology to the curriculum. There is clear communication about what is expected, and the teachers know the children and can provide specific direction when needed. For a school to be successful, there must be respectful, open lines of communication between the parents and the teachers, and I have found this to be the case. If subjects need to be discussed in detail about a child, the teachers are available through email and notes. Meetings can be scheduled between the parent and teacher if necessary. I believe that the teachers and the principal take the education and care of each student to heart.

Great teachers, a welcoming community, and many friendly parents who take the time to greet each other during pickup. I think the amount of homework given is fair to a little much, but better a little too much homework than too little. My spouse and I appreciate the smaller, warmer environment of St. Helena's over the overwhelming nature of the local public schools. What we appreciate most, however, is how dedicated the teachers are at St. Helena's, and how responsive the teachers are to the needs of the children and concerns of the parents. We plan on keeping our kids at this school all the way through 8th grade. I'm rating this school 4 stars instead of 5 because one of the office staff members is often rude to parents, but the rest of the office staff is professional.

Let me just say that this website is absolutely ridiculous. We are not ordering a hamburger at a local restaurant, and if you discount a school based on accusations of disgruntled parents then you may be missing out on a wonderful experience. Every school is different and every child has different needs. That is why I feel this website provides no substantial value whatsoever. But since I have read some reviews I will share my opinion. I sent my first daughter to St. Helena 15 years ago. She is nowt a second year student at NYU and recalls that the best times of her life were when she was a student at St. Helena. I now have a second child there who is 10 years old and is so happy to go to school each day. The teachers and the principal are caring and dedicated to each student. I am not hung up on how far ahead or behind we are in the curriculum because that is all relative. Did I mention my daughter is at NYU? If your child gets reprimanded and you are not happy with that, maybe you are not doing what needs to be done at home. And if you get reprimanded as a parent that may be a sure sign that you child isn't getting the proper example as well.
