I was accepted, out of the district, to attend classes in my Junior and Senior years of school. I graduated with honors and as a member of NHS, FBLA, and I lettered in academics both years there. The faculty at this school was able to teach and provide greater one-on-one time with smaller class sizes, internet/network computer capabilities, and extracurricular activities, including sports, music, student government, and business/agriculture groups. I am very grateful to have spent the time I did in Helix learning and participating in various preparatory programs. Thank you Griswold High School, Helix OR!!
