I do have a reccomendation, Helena Christian School on Roberts street.
Excellent curriculum, and they produce some of the best educated, well rounded and polite young adults it has ever been my pleasure to be around.

If you are talking public high schools, take your pick. There are two, Helena High and Helena Senior.
Both are acceptable, basic forum education. Nothing different from any other public high school in the state. Maybe better than some, not as good as others.
Same old emphasis on Football and Basketball.

Forget History, Science, English, Languages, Mathematics or any other subject that is actually necessary to be a productive member of society.

Helena High does have a decent computer department though.

There is a very good program produced each year for high school aged kids, called "Night to Shine" which is basically a talent show. It is usually pretty impressive.

I would say contact the schools directly and see what is offered. You may just have to send to the school where you live in the district if you choose the public option.

The Missouri river is close to Helena. I remember riding on the river years ago through the Gates of the Mountain. The Sleeping Giant is also a neat mountain formation that is visible from Helena. Not sure if that part is suitable for kayaking or not. Maybe.

The one downside to Helena is that since it is in a bowl-shaped area, smog gets captured above the town in the winter. If one is driving down I-15 from the North, they can see the haze floating above the town.

But the town is around 25,000 people (give or take a few), so not an overly large town, which can be a benefit, especially if you have lived in larger cities.
