Entrance into Helix Charter High School

Enrollment at Helix Charter High School is open to any student in grades 9-12. The boundaries set by the Grossmont Union High School District do not apply to Helix, as we have our own attendance area, which may overlap some GUHSD schools' attendance areas. Regardless of which school is your "neighborhood school" as determined by the local school districts, families may choose to attend Helix. 

Use our searchable boundary map to help you determine if you reside within the traditional Helix boundaries.
