The mission of the Helena-West-Helena School District is to produce graduates who are fully prepared for life after school as productive, responsible and caring citizens


Our Students are lifelong learners who are fully prepared to enter college, join the military, or start a vocation. Through school and community experiences, they have developed the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and character necessary to be globally competitive and successful in a technologically advanced world. Our students embrace diversity, act responsibly, and contribute to our community. Our students are engaged, empowered and excited about their educational experiences.

Our Educators are excited about showing up every day and believe that all students can meet or exceed rigorous academic standards. Teachers, staff, and administrators together form a rich professional learning community where all are supported to hone our professional craft and improve our effectiveness. We work collaboratively to continuously evolve instructional and operational practices that enable us to inspire students to become lifelong learners with the knowledge and skills to achieve academic success and prepare for life in a global, ever-changing world.

Our schools are a comprehensive system of support that engage the whole child in a nurturing, safe, and professional environment that fosters a community of excellence. Our educational experience in and outside the classroom offers rigorous and culturally-relevant curriculum that facilitates educational success and social, emotional and physical development of all students.

Our Families and Community are stakeholders in the success of our students and schools. Families are active, engaged and welcomed partners in their child’s education. Our diverse community is passionate about equitable educational outcomes for all students. Our civic and community organizations partner with us to promote family engagement and the well-being and success of our students.
