Helena High School has had two dynasties in its history. Its first dynasty came in the beginning of Montana Science Olympiad, as they were state champions every year from 1986-1989, with their best place coming in 1986, when they placed eighth. However, they were defeated in 1990 and did not return to nationals for almost two decades. Finally, in 2008, the team won first place at the state tournament.
