The Prentice family shares what they love about raising a family in Helena

Stellar schools

Helena Elementary and Intermediate Schools

Our children have personally attended Helena Elementary School and Helena Intermediate School, both of which we have been highly impressed with. All the teachers and staff have been exceptional and intentional. Our family also loves the various events the different schools put on, such as the Father Daughter Dance, Mother Son Dance, beauty pageants and Spring Fling.


An eventful city

Helena’s top-notch event line up

We love participating in events such as the Christmas parade, Old Town Lives, Easter egg hunts, Buck Creek festival, Christmas tree lighting, Helena Hollow pumpkin patch, etc. The town is always hosting exciting events & encouraging its residents to be a part of the wonderful community.

Parks and Rec

From children’s sports to wild spaces

Our children have participated in rec flag football, cheer, baseball and soccer. We have enjoyed the experience of watching them thrive in sports. We also love the variety of outdoor recreation offered. From Cahaba Lily Park to Joe Tucker to the Hillsboro trail to Buck Creek area, there are so many beautiful outdoor options.

Hometown heartthrob 

Beautiful sights and small town charm

We love living in Helena because of the gorgeous scenery and old town vibe. The waterfall/dam is a beautiful view, along with the Buck Creek area and the various shops and restaurants of Old Town. Gives you a hometown feel.

Friendly faces

New friends around every corner

Last, but certainly not least, is the people. We’ve made great friends in Helena from our kid’s fellow classmate’s and their parents, our kid’s sports teams and their parents, connections through events or friends and just meeting people while out in town. We love this city and the people help make it great!
