Academic programs have improved tremendously. More opportunities for student success at all schools. All have been reconstituted. St. Helena College and Career Academy has new facilities (stadium with a track, classroom building, renovated gym, new cafeteria, additional classroom space). New parking lot, new band program, and new advanced curriculum that focus on post-secondary success. Football team is division champions. Added sports programs as well. All employees received a raise. New Early Learning Center for K-2 students. Complete turn-around in this school system.
