I loved Henderson Middle School! Most of the teacher there were very nice and helping. I would have to say their engeering classes are the best connections classes. The teachers always make sure that every student knows the material and always offer tutoring. But the only thing bad about Henderson is ...  Read more

Principal is professional, understands middle schoolers and strives for excellence. In 6th grade we have been very happy with teachers who are committed to helping my child excel. As a parent you need to be involved. There are a lot of kids but if you stay involved with your child the academics are there ...  Read more

The school is no good, there is way to much bullying. And the teachers don't care about anything other than their paycheck.

A good environment to learn and challenge students. The school exceeded my expectations. I have found the teachers and administrators approachable and willing to go above and beyond for my daughter. I recommend the school to any parent seeking a quality education for their child.

My child had a fabulous year in 7th grade. Yes, the teachers are facing large classes and an increase of ridiculous paperwork, yet they showed they cared about my child and were sensitive to his needs. Teachers and administrators were readily available to meet with me/email me to discuss concerns. ...  Read more

This school is terrible. The teachers are overwhelmed and do not care about student performance so long as they are not problematic to the classroom environment. If you want your child to succeed, have them flip a desk over for attention. Otherwise, it is almost easier to give up. I have to visit ...  Read more

You can put all your heart and soul in this school as a student and become involved as much as you can as a parent. You STILL will encounter teachers who don't care and some who do care. I agree with the other comments about teachers being overwhelmed and overcrowding of the school. I can't believe how ...  Read more

Sometimes what you put into a school is what you get out of it. My child is a current Henderson student, and he is putting his heart and soul into everything he does there. He is having an incredible experience, and I applaud the teachers who inspire him. You know who you are- THANK YOU!
