School Reviews

5   5/1/2007
This middle school is a fine school for the small town of St. Helens. The academics are average, but the band/ choir program is award winning. They do require Physical Education to all students unless there is an excpetion. The quality of the structure is not bad. the gym was recently re-done, and the building is in good shape. Parents from around the area are usually very involved in things like talent shows and programs put on by the students.
