My student is getting a good education and the principal truly cares about their academic success. The Central Office is the weakness of the district. There is no consistency and the superintendent keeps letting the principals go. My senior this year has had two principals and they are not bringing back the current principal. What a shame, the principal did a terrific job and is the biggest reason for my son success and the school's success the last two years. I will probably take my middle schooler to Elizabethtown next year.
our family just moved here from Elizabethtown.We have a daughter that attended central hardin high,she went there for two years and loved it. I hope she will feel the same about helson county high! and about the dress code ,can someone fill me in on this?she didnt have a dress code at central. dont really know star rating
Most of the time dress code is not enforced, then suddenly one day it is enforced. Some students can break dress code and others cannot. All of the extracurricular classes have been cut except Ag. Business, Tech.Ed., cut. Band didn't march one year and it died. There just isn't much for such a large student body to choose from. Discipline seems to be lacking - not followed up on. Doesn't seem to be a lot of school spirit.
This is a great school i had one son to go there and he played football and loved it. I deffinatley would have had all my children attend and graduate from nelson county but unfortunatley we moved. But, this school is great, and if your looking then pick nelson county you will have no regrets.
Great School helps you in more ways then you will know...I am still learning and using these skills even today...
