SHPS is a Kindergarten through Second Grade school located in the town of St. Helena, in the heart of the Napa Valley. It was newly opened in 2000. The facility is architecturally distinctive and beautifully landscaped. Garden beds, an outdoor gazebo and picnic tables by each classroom extend learning outdoors. There are fifteen classrooms; three portables housing music, art, and physical education; a multipurpose room/cafeteria, called "The Barn”; and an administration building housing the library/computer lab and staff offices. The views from the school are rural and beautiful in all directions.
