Amount of homework: Agree

Seems to be an effective level without being so much that we can't do extracurricular activities.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
Had one incident and it was dealt with quickly and haven't had any others.

Small class sizes, some great teachers, good kids, and good environment with art, music, and Spanish classes. We have nothing but good things to say about the elementary part of this school.



- a
Although the school sends parents the message that it will accommodate special needs and ADHD kids, and has a specific AIM high program for them, in reality it does not. Our child with ADHD had a hard time in middle school and we felt he was *punished* by the school for his ADHD, not accommodated for it. Dig deep and ask hard questions of the school and other parents before sending a child with ADHD to this school.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Although the AIM high program was sold as catering to kids with learning disabilities, the school seemed incapable of accommodating them, on the ground. Point in fact, staff were woefully unprepared for behavioral issues associated with ADHD. ADHD could be accommodated only if narrowly defined as having academic consequences only




- a
The fact that school starts in 3 weeks and my child is counting down the days until he can go back tells me that we picked the right school. Teachers really care and he is doing way better academically than he was at his old school. Great school!

Small classes, friendly teachers, friendly parents and friendly kids! Our daughter was struggling at our local school and was to the point of crying and refusing to go. Since she has been going to Mt. Helix Academy we only see smiles in the morning and that makes us smile too!

We LOVED this school in elementary. It was excellent, with excellent teachers. They worked with our special needs son, and he learned and loved it, despite difficulties. Then came middle school. Totally different. No support, no accommodations, no walls between classes (seriously. Six classes in two rooms with no walls. Our ADHD kid could not survive.) Still in tears over leaving, but it had to be...please consider seriously before putting your student in middle school here.




- a
The academics are the best because group sizes for math, spelling and reading are so small. My child is working way ahead of grade level and she loves it! The teachers are really nice and positive and you can tell they love the kids. It wasn't like that at our old school. We love MHA!



- a
MHA is an amazing school! My son advanced 3 grade levels in his academics in one year. We have just started our second year there. The academics are challenging and kids learn in small groups at their own pace. The school rewards good behavior and teaches the kids the importance of respect and good character. The art teacher and music teacher are fantastic. My son has social skill delays and the teachers and staff have been wonderful in helping him. The entire school is small enough that it is like a family--everyone works together to help the kids learn and excel--in all aspects! I am amazed at how well my son is doing--both academically and socially. This is truly an outstanding school!
