The refreshed website should reflect the personality not only of the district but also of the Helena community and the state of Montana. The initial build must be completed by 11/30/2019.
Helena Public Schools foster dynamic educational experiences
that prepare all students for life. The mission of the Helena Public Schools is
to challenge and empower each student to maximize individual potential and
become a competent, productive, responsible, caring citizen.
This mission will be supported through the wise use of

Students, families, educators and the community are committed to sharing the
responsibility for creating a student-centered educational community that
acknowledges learning as a life-long process.
