St Helen has been instrumental in helping their students succeed! Every classroom is equipped with state of the art smart board technology, children have iPads and chrome books and utilize google classroom where the teachers are available to them almost always! The small school size really allows all of the staff to get to know every student by name, no more being just a number lost in a large school. The free breakfast and lunch programs provide each student with balanced meals daily and it is really eveident that the teachers and staff truly care for each child under their tutelage. If you are looks for a small, caring, loving, warm environment with Catholic values and balanced discpline, then this is the school for you. The academics and curriculum are only growing with the addition of novel studies in the classroom, and parents are even able to track their students progress online with their online grading book system. The school administerstion, along with the faculty and staff, go above and beyond in providing they were best they can for their kids!
My 4 year old has been in the pre-kindergaten for barely two weeks and the administration told me that she was not fit for the school and they could not keep her. I have to find another place that better suit her. How horrible is that... they did not give my daughter a chance to adjust to the school and learning to know the teacher and her classmates. For me they have zero patience with these little kids. As a Catholic establisment who suppose to welcome and nuture their students, they had failed to deliver what they should follow in their faith.
There is new school administration. The school atmosphere has changed in just one year. This year they have Robotics and have change their curriculum to STREAM (STEM with Arts and Religion). They have a 3D printer and iPads for every student. The teachers are welcoming and truly care for the kids.
That other review is old. This school, although small, has great teachers and classes. Each child is known by name and the teachers really care. The school building is older but they have iPads and White Boards. When you visit the campus you can feel the difference.
What I can say about this school is it has a wonderful athletic dept. Even though all are not winning seasons, this coach is always there for the school and his students, and goes above and beyond the ranking of a teacher. Not only does he teach the students discipline, he also shows honor in everything he does. I have been blessed to have him teach 2 of my children until they went on to high school, and without a father figure in the home, I can truly say he has made a world of difference to our family. Thank you Coach MacIntyre for being such a great role model for so many. He is truly a God loving man. ML
