I have a child who is a freshman at Helios Catholic High School. This is also their first year in a Catholic school. They have found the school to be very welcoming and the students and teachers are very kind, supportive and polite. The different grades interact positively and the teachers are dedicated to the students and the learning environment. The teachers provide assistance but also challenge the students to do more. The students are very motivated and not only do they excel in their studies but they often participate in extracurricular activities like clubs and sports and many even have jobs after school. The school has many supportive teachers, staff and administrators who encourage the students and parents to be involved. There are many opportunities for students to grow and learn at Helias and for that I am grateful.
Helias has been both challenging and rewarding for my children. It challenges in the area of academics and rewarding in having not only competitive sports team but also excellent fine art activities. The student of today needs to develop both sides of the brain if they will be successful in their future. I believe Helias provides that for my children that is why we chose Helias!
I have had 2 students graduate from Helias . The both did well in college and both graduated. That is what is important. The basis of their education to finish college was established at Helias. It cost me to send them to Helias, but well worth the investment. Almost 98% for students that go their go own to some sort of advance education with nearly 80% graduating. However, more important is they graduate good responsible adults.
I care about my students. I hope I have influenced them to be successful, however they might define success. I still keep in touch with many of my former students and continue to celebrate their work as servants to the Kingdom, as parents, and as future contributors to their community.
I attended Helias High School for 1 semester of freshman year, but then I moved to Kansas and I now currently go to public school. There is a huge difference in the way they provide education. The grading scale is a lot more advanced and there's a good amount of homework every night, but if you study and pay attention it's not bad. Whenever I got to public school, it was such a breeze! I already knew half the stuff they taught me and getting good grades wasn't difficult at all. Despite getting a great deal of homework every night, (which actually isn't a bad thing if you're looking for an outstanding education) Helias is definitely a great school. It not only has high expectations for education, but as well as basic morals and values. Helias regularly has assemblies from insperational people who tell us about their stories and experiences. I have definitely found myself having a closer relationship with God. Even if you aren't catholic and you're just looking for a great school to put your child in for a better education, Helias is a good option. I definitely miss being a Sader. I have made so many great friends and I would go back in a heartbeat if I could.
I attended Helias and I am very sorry I did. I had a few good teachers, but many member of the staff are not high quality teacher and have no business being educators. Over all the school is over hyped and I feel I could have received a much better education at a different institution.
As a graduate, I cannot imagine going to a greater high school. Helias provides great opportunities, a caring and supportive staff, friendly and loving atmosphere from students, and tremendous school pride. Every day I am thankfull I went to Helias High School.
I attended a school out of the area until last year....Helias is 100% better. The teachers expect more from you but they also are willing to work with each student on a one on one basis as well as classroom setting. They have really great coaches that let anyone try a sport even if it is new to them. I feel proud to be a Crusader!
Helias is a great high school! It has an amazing dedicated staff that brings the best out of its academic program. The student atmosphere is another thing that gets to me. Once you become a part of Helias you get to build strong friendships that last. The Christian values of Helias are also outstanding. Many opprotunities become available for stundents to practice their faith openly and freely. Not only does Helias offer a tremendous athletic program, but being a member myself I can say that its music department is also truly amazing...and growing!
