Read what parents are saying about Wittmann (Helen) Elementary School
From the moment we stepped into the front office we felt welcome here. Our kids feel both challenged and cared for here. We feel strongly about the dedicated staff and administration, they pour their lives into other people's children as if they are their own. This year the class sizes have increased across the district but everybody in this community just committed to working harder. There are many parent volunteers here and a good amount of after school activities. They take great care to make everyone feel included and somehow create an environment that is cohesive despite the great amount of diversity in the student population. There are schools with better test scores, but the close knit community feeling here is as strong as any school we have ever come across.

My daughter has been at Wittmann for five years now and we absolutely love it!! They have a strong bond with parents and students and they do so much to help the students. Things like events, fundraisers, movie nights, informative assemblies, trunk-or-treat, winter wonderland, red ribbon week and tons more. I am so grateful to be a part of such wonderful team that constantly strives to do and be its best. Proud Parent of s Wittmann Warrior!!

Our child is always engaged in a variety of activities in a caring and challenging environment at Wittmann. This is not a homogeneous population of over-driven children, but a diverse population that learn to appreciate each other, and go beyond accepting their differences to understanding the beauty in differences, all the while maintaining a high level of academic integrity. Wittmann has been a dream come true for us, in unexpected ways.

If you are a parent that wants to send their kids to be babysat and not be involved with your child's education, Wittmann Elementary is not for you. The school is a well knit community of engaging parents, caring teachers and staff, and a principal that embodies the traits of education in the new times. The test scores and awards speak for themselves. I don't feel bad about giving money to the school because I see how many learning opportunities my child is given compared to children attending other schools. Bravo Wittmann!!
