This was a top notch school SY02/03, but suffered under a lax principal since that SY. This SY (SY05/06) new leadership has shown that the basics count, and that both parents and teachers are accountable.

I was very satisfied with the school and teachers at Helen Ball. My children attended for three years until we moved out state. The teachers were great and the attention given to students is better.
