The teachers at Helen Baller are great. They are very involved with their students and really take an interest in helping them learn. There is A LOT of parent involvement and there are lots of community activities. Our kids are sad during breaks and look forward to returning.

I love the teachers and principal and fun activities. However, there is not much homework at all to reinforce what the kids learned at school. My kid asks me to create her own homework at home.

This is a small town school. I love it. From the teachers to the principal. From the Playgrounds to the new Jack, Will, and Rob center. From the parents to each and every child. This is reall the best elementary school around by far.

Foundation poor, program rich. They keep the kids busy with lots and lots of extracurricular activities. Excellent help in reading and math. Great for overall self-esteem. My kids have the most caring teachers on the planet!

This small school has a very neighborhood feel. The parental involvement is amazing. The PTA is very active and welcomes any level of participation which you feel comfortable with. The teachers all welcome parent helpers and work to fit a time into your schedule. Parents are encouraged to spend extra time with their kids in the school setting - having lunch with your child for example. There are some great extracurricular activities/teams to get involved in - jump rope team, tumbling team, juggling team, chess team, student produced television program, student patrol (crosswalk guards). The teachers are constantly finding new ways to challenge our kids! The principal knows all the kids by name and expends effort to help each child feel connected and important.
