Helena Elementary School Reviews

False Student to Teacher Ratio

By a Parent on

When I enrolled in this school, I was informed that there were about 18 children to one teacher in the classroom setting. Additionally, I was instructed that one assistant would also be available in the classroom. Needless to say, this is untrue because the Kindergarten class that my son is enrolled in has 26 children to one teacher and a part-time assistant. I ask you, how can effective learning take place with such high numbers? It cannot, and the teachers and children are having to suffer. Person County should allow for more coverage in the classroom. Twenty-six children to one teacher is way too much, particularly in the Kindergarten setting. Hence, I would rate this school as a challenged school that needs some reorganization, before it is too late.

The parent that submitted the comment on 8-18- 2011 should spend a few moments at the school, sit, and observe what really goes on at Helena. Helena is a very good school. The teachers are outstanding and strive to help the students learn. However, some parents don't have "time" to help their children with homework, and support in all areas of their learning. If children don't start learning at home, how can parents expect the teachers to educate them??

Helena has not stuck with the no child left behind program.They need to quit talking about how good they are and focuse on the kids.
