Helms Middle School Reviews

By , a Former Student on

As a former student at Walter T. Helms Middle School and now a Junior in high school, I look back on my time in Helms. It is a good school. All the teachers cared and wanted you do do your best and then some. I had a great experiance and I am glad to see it moving up. I am also pleased to see that test scores have gone up. I give it a 4 out of 5. It was good but not great.
