31 Parent Reviews for The Henderson International School
My children have attended HIS for three years. Unfortunately, this school is a mere shadow of the former Warren Walker School. What you get now is a lot of corporate hype and empty promises. The campus is beautiful and the curriculum reads well but the school administration doesn't deliver academically.
... Read more The school is a favorite of rich parents in Henderson who like to have their nannys drop off their kids. Consequently, there is an almost total lack of community among the families. Overall, it's a very sad example of what private education has become in the US. Their only real selling point is that it's better than public schools (which I don't think is true and really amounts to a scare tactic they use on parents). Read less

We have two daughters in this school and we love it. Great teachers, facilities, extracurricular activities. Best school in henderson by far. More school days, daily study hall, ipads in first grade, violin starting in first grade, spanish etc. What other school offers all that in world class facilities.

This school is amazing. Everyone always talks about how bad the schools are in Las Vegas, but they obviously have not experienced the Henderson International School. Our daughter had a difficult time transitioning to this school at first as they are consistently teaching at least one grade level above
... Read more kids in other schools, but the kids quickly adjust to the higher level of learning. Our friends can't believe the class sizes at Henderson are typically half that of public schools and the campus is like a college campus with great activities for the kids. My only critique is that although they do start Spanish classes in pre-school (who else does that exactly?), given this is an "international" school, it would be nice to offer a complete Spanish or French total immersion program similar to international schools in other major cities.

There aren't many preschool choices around this area. That is why HIS can keep their business. It is sad to hear that the school is hiring many positions including elementary and middle school principals. These positions are not suppose to be posted on the job seeker's site. It tells me that HIS cares

I was confused because preschool progress report has changed again. I believe that the director doesn't have confidence what she is doing. We wasted our time and money spending 2 years in this school. This is my advice, beautiful campus doesn't mean quality education. If you have enough money to spend

Warren Walker was very different from HIS. I experienced both schools, so I know it. If you think about sending your kids to public school near future, earlier is better. You think your child is way ahead of everybody in public school, no no no. You will have to face the fact. If you pay $50000 you
