At St. Helena Elementary School, we strive to develop students who will have life-long enthusiasm for the pursuit of knowledge and academic excellence. Building upon the mastery of their basic skills, they will become effective problem communicators and problem solvers. Through a coordinated effort of home, school, and community, students will develop a strong set of positive values, a strong sense of responsibility to family and community, and caring about self and others. They will have the courage to take appropriate social and intellectual risks with the support and encouragement of their peers and adults of the world. It is important that children from our school have the skills and abilities to contribute constructively to the greater community.
