As a parent I believe that this school's main focus is on academics. It has improved over the last couple of years, although there is a lack of extracurricular activities and sports acitivities. I believe that children would benefit more out of these types of activities together with the academics. The level of parental involvement has improved little by little. Overall, I believe that most of the teachers are excellent. The principal and the vice principal are mostly available, which is good.

Heliotrope, has struggle to keep improving test scores every year. But, has shown great improvement towards a better academic achievement. Teachers, work very hard in a collaborative manner and have student achievement as its most important priority. This past test scores have shown that Heliotrope, is moving forward and demonstrating that even though it lacks parent involvement teachers care enough to teach students.
