Helms Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

October 28, 2017 Submitted by a parent
This is our first year at Helms. My son is in Kindergarten. We are zoned to Harvard, but we wanted to give dual language a try. You must enter by Kinder because a new student entering later would be too far behind. We know that his english vocabulary will lag behind for a year or two, but then it will catch up. Studies show that kids being educated in dual language schools test as high as their peers in single language schools and often higher by fifth grade. Being bilingual is one thing, but being biliterate and being able to write and read in a second language is an excellent skill in the professional world. Additionally, being bilingual literally creates additional neuro pathways in the brain! Also, Helms is a smaller school with about 460 students, so it has a close knit community. The principal is very focused on the curriculum, so we are equally happy with their math and science too. It is such a warm environment and we could not be more happy with our little gem of a school. It is the best kept secret in the Heights!

Helms lacks preparedness and organizational skills. The pick up procedures lack tremendous attention. There are only two school staff outside during dismissal calling car driver names for the huge amount of students being released. The rest are inside just standing around instead of assisting outside. Walkers and car drivers get released at the same gate with the same tag. This is the first time I seen this type of system that anyone is allowed to walk up to the gates to pick up students as long as they have the tag. The system does not differentiate between walkers and car drivers so being there early in the car line is pointless because you will never get your kid unless you get off the car. Beware that they pay attention on releasing students who are walkers while car riders stand their for the next available staff to walk them to their cars because the staff is all over the place releasing walkers. They do not call car drivers names in order either. Parents violate pick up and traffic signs but no school staff is out there telling them not to. If they do see them they do not address these parents that they are violating school procedures. Parents cross the streets with their children to walk across the street to their vehicles were they are not allowed to park in the first place. The parents that do follow pick up procedures are force to pick up their kids in the middle of the street because they are being blocked by parents leaving their cars to walk up to the gates to pick up their children. This is a huge safety issue for all of the children and parents. If Helms pick up procedures are horrible, unsafe, and unorganized I can only imagine the attention and importance they give to our children in their every day experience here. I do not recommend the school because Helms students safety is not their top priority. A school must be prepare, organized and be involved in every aspect to ensure that our children are safe and parents feel good walking away to leave their children at their hands. The new principal is never outside during dismissal but yet responds that she will ensure that safety is top priority. How will she ensure safety and implement dismissal procedures when she is not outside during dismissal but always inside during the times that she needs to pay attention of the issues needing improvement.

We decided to give Helms a try because the idea of a truly bilingual education really appealed to my husband and me. We have been thoroughly impressed by the administration, teachers, and other families we've met over the last year. The building isn't the newest, shiniest around, but the love, attention, and quality education that each and every child receives more than makes up for it.

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! I think the homework is a bit much at times.

Our son has been at this school since Kinder and he loves it there. The teachers he has had, have been great to work with and they really supported our son considering our family is not a Spanish speaking family. We could not ask for anymore than that and are very grateful for our son's sake. This year our second son started PK and seems to be adjusting to the dual language program as well as our older son did when he first started the program.
