This school is in desperate need of new administration, teachers and staff. Needs a complete intervention and over haul. My son attended this school and I uncovered with facts and another teacher witness that a teacher had been lying about my son's progress and challenges. The principal NEVER reprimanded the teacher and was actually rude to me. Horrible experience for little ones and their parents!

My grand-daughter is having some wonderful learning opportunities - reading, laughter, music, art. There's a lot of individualized planning for each child. And my grand-daughter loves school!

Great School! All 3 of my kids attended there and loved it! The teachers were great and were very caring. Excellent PTA. We miss the school very much now that our kids don't attend.

I love Helendale. All three of my children have gone to Helendale and things seem even better with the new principal. The teachers are all incredible. They give so much of themselves to the students. This is our last year at Helendale and we will miss it very much. It is a very special place.

I have two children currently attending Helendale Rd. School. I have been very impressed by the current principal and teachers. Helendale's district is a fairly diverse community, we are thankful for this diversity. The PTA is very active in the Helendale community.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
