Helman is a wonderful school. Dedicated teachers and parents make this an ideal learning community. The teachers care deeply about their students and the PTA is amazing. While the curriculum is designed to be appropriately challenging for where the students are, development of the whole person is paramount. We moved to Ashland for the schools, and this school exceeded our high expectations. Bravo!

Warning to any parent that has a child with behavior issues: This school will be an absolute nightmare. I moved my child to Walker after two months of having to pick my son up from school every other day for "severe behavior." His new teacher said "I have seen none of the behaviors described by his other teacher." He finished out the remainder of the school year with hardly any issues at Walker - he had a whole team of dedicated staff that made sure he was welcome and integrated. At Helman he was ostracized and demonized. I spoke to another parent and she has almost the exact same experience with her son. This school is geared more toward compliant children with at least one parent that doesn't work outside the home. They schedule events and concerts during normal business/working hours. This school is fantastic for a niche of people - doesn't serve the entire community as a public school funded by the WORKING TAX PAYING parents should.

This school is amazing. I attended it for fourth and fifth grade, and in it I shared the best memories with the teachers and students. The atmosphere of the school is so clean, fresh, and fun. My teachers would always hang out with everyone, and both always had a smile across their face. This school will always be a big part in my educational life, and the stuff i've learned in it will always stay with me.

Helman is more than a school, it is a community. The teachers are examplory, the principal is a dynamic leader with great integrity. The whole school builds strong relationships with parents to create the best possible environment for the children.

Are you looking for a warm, welcoming, inclusive school for your child? Helman Elementary School is a jewel of a neighborhood school tucked away in a quiet area of Ashland, Oregon. Most children who attend this school have gone all the way through their elementary years here, but when new children come, they are accepted with open arms and hearts. As the reading specialist for the past six years and a teacher at Helman for the past 20, I can attest to the fact that our curriculum is child centered but academically challenging. We catch children early if they start struggling academically or socially and give them the support they need to succeed. Come by to visit and see our beautiful facility and welcoming staff and school. Nancy Daniels

My son is a 2nd grader here and we both love it. The teachers are fantastic. They care about not only that he is reading, but that he is playing well with his friends too. They go on plenty of field trips to really include fun while learning. Parent involvement is greatly encouraged.

When it's a snow day and my children are actually disappointed to be missing school, it's a good sign that Helman deserves 5 stars.

This year the last of my four children will attend Helman Elemantary School. After a tough transition; moving across the state, seperation and divorce of their parents, etc. my children all required a little extra tlc. Helman's incredible staff stepped up to the plate and provided each and every one of my children with compassion, understanding and life building lessons. I am so happy to have had my kids attend Helman. Although it has been difficult to afford to live here as a single parent with four children, it is a personal 'sacrifice' that I would do 100% again. The most important thing in a child's life, besides involved parents, are engaged teachers. You'll find Incredibly engaged teachers and staff at Helman Elementary. Thank you Helman Staff!
