The rigorous AP Calculus AB course is designed to be the equivalent of a first semester college calculus course focusing on topics in differential and integral calculus. Along with the opportunity to earn Advanced Placement credit, juniors/seniors in this class have the opportunity to earn dual credit through Helena High and Helena College of Technology.
AP Calculus BC is a rigorous course. The course is the equivalent to both first and second semester college calculus courses. In AP Calculus BC the content and skills learned in AP Calculus AB are reviewed to ensure mastery of content. Instruction then involves learning parametrically defined curves, polar curves, and vector-valued functions; develops additional integration techniques and applications; and introduces the topics of sequences and series.
Honors Pre-Calculus prepares students for college and careers. This course is designed for students who have successfully (A -C) completed Algebra II or Honors Math II. Students will be taught the skills necessary for success in AP Statistics and AP Calculus. Juniors/Seniors in this class have the opportunity to earn dual credit through Helena High and Helena College of Technology.
Study Hall is designed to be a place where students work on daily subject matter. I will ensure that the environment remains conducive to learning every day. This means that cellphone usage will not be allowed in study hall. There will be computers available every day for students to use. I will check in with students on a regular basis to make sure that they are staying abreast of requirements for success in their classes. I will also be available to assist students with subjects/topics that I am confident with.

The membership is limited to twenty-one junior and senior boys and girls.
Some of the duties that the club has been asked to perform in the past include ushering at graduation, planting and weeding Bengal Jungle, working concession stands, helping new students and helping with festival of trees. We also took on the Reverend Harper Student-of-the-Month award and select a deserving student each month.
This club is unique to Helena High School and was established in December of 1937 by a group of students that were trying to build unity and support of one another at Helena High School.
