Henagar is, in my opinion, the best school to send your child to in DeKalb County. The teachers and staff are caring, supportive and overall a wonderful group to work with your children. They are informative and active in the extracurricular activities that go on. The parents are welcomed and involved in the school activities. The principal and counselor both go over and above the call of duty for the children at this school. I am so thankful that my child attends Henagar Junior High School.

Henagar School used to be a great school. Some teachers do not seem to care about encouraging or motivating students.

My husband attended Henagar and now our daughter attends the school. It is an awesome school. The faculty is the GREATEST! The principal is young and all the kids love him! He is very active with all the school activities and teachers, kids and parents get along with him very well. The only small complaint I can think of, is I wish they had more sports. They only have basketball.I know many years ago they had a football program. It was very popular for many years, and then suddenly it ceased. I would also like for them to do more with arts. Please, if your child/children have an opportunity to attend this school, do so!
