My child started with Henry in kindergarten, when wrightstown merged over. I was extremely nervous. Though she had Ms Ryan who was the best teacher ever for kindergarten and second grade. In first grade she had Mrs. Hoogie who was great. in third she had Mrs. Rosen and in fourth she had Mrs. Boatner. We were never let down with bad teachers or not being involved with the class or school activities. The teachers send out weekly newsletters and are more than happy to talk with you at any time. In my daughters fifth year at Henry, another school merged in and a new principle came. The principle was always there and majority of the days he would help direct traffic on the street at the end of the day. Which is helpful behind belief and great to see. The previous principle helped traffic right in front of the school Which was helpful to me the first two years at Henry. The office, library, volunteers, and other staff are nice and helpful. I believe it's not just up to the teachers but the parents as well to have a great school experience. My daughter as well as I have had a wonderful experience with Henry and we can't wait til next year.

If I could give this school "negative" stars I would! 4 teacher in one school years is outrageous! Who does that to a third grader? ! And then when they do FINALLY get a teacher she "leaves for personal reasons" 8 days before the end of the school year! ! UNREAL! ! This school has been nothing but a great disappointment from the very first day! Teachers=poor, counseling services=poor, principal=not a bad Guy but seems to be left out of the loop at times, front office=poor! They really dropped the ball when it came to my child being bullies....for TWO weeks...I never received one phone call about the situation! Then another child put their hands on my child and NO ONE thought to tell the principal or call me! Again...unacceptable! This should have been the school that got closed!

Henry has gone through a lot of changes this year with two schools combining. I was worried but I have to say it has gone great. It quickly has become one schools. The staff has been there for my child and their education. The new principal has brought it all together. He is kind to the students and has learned a lot of their names. He always answers me quickly when I have questions. The office is friendly when we come in. We love this school.

Mrs. Dorfman is a first grade teacher and she is a great teacher who is concerned about her first graders. My son is very lucky to have her as a teacher!

It was a great school for many years. However, this year is been just bad there is a new principal and Henry is not the same. I truly doubt they will remain an A school. Also, there was another school that merged with Henry and it truly brought the wrong crowd. My son is in fifth grade, he has a good teacher but so far he has informed me of unruly kids getting in trouble, even the police was involved in a particular incident. Next year my younger son will not attend this school. It is truly a shame because it was an amazing school.

All of the things I heard about this school made me feel like this was a great place to send my child. It's NOT! This school lacks communication. The teachers are cold and distant. The principal is new and doesn't know how to run a school. The best part of the school is the office staff. They are wonderful, too bad the principal and the teachers I've met aren't.

I am not very thrilled this year on how the school is going. I think they took on a lot more than they could handle and didn't care how it would effect the kids there. The principle is not a hands on type of guy, haven't seen him around or do very much. If it doesn't get better and they staff doesn't get on top of it I am going to have to relocate my child.

My kinder-age daughter has been attending this school since the start of the '12-'13 school year. I LOVE this school. The teachers are effective, friendly, creative, and fun. The prinicipal takes his job very seriously and is very effective and dedicated. He knows the name of every child in the entire school. He has fun with the job and the kids really respond to that. There is a small but mighty PTA that offers a lot of fun family activities. The programs are challenging for the students, but additional help/tutoring is available to those who need it. The entire faculty/staff are extremely committed and dedicated to their students. There is also a fabulous art program, choir and orchestra, PE, and after-school sports. Several cool local programs have come through the school this year including OMA (Opening Minds through the Arts) and Stories that Soar. There's also an on-site preschool and after-school program offered by the YMCA. My younger daughter is part of the preschool and we both love it. I researched a lot of Tucson schools before choosing Henry and am SO glad I did!

Henry Elementary is a wonderful neighborhood school. My son attended 1-5th there, and my daughter is currently enrolled. I feel that the current leadership is excellent, teachers are top-notch, and, especially with the merging of Wrightstown, there is much to offer students in the way of extra activities, like music, art, sports, etc. My children have always been very happy at Henry, and I would recommend it highly to any parent.

I transferred my son in September 2008 from Wrightstown Elementary to Henry Elementary in order to find a new 1st grade teacher for him. I am so happy that I made that decision. My son has Mrs. Hendrickson and she is a wonderful teacher. She is patient with the children and does a great job of educating them. My son has made a lot of progress this year, especially with his reading and writing. My son loves his school and even though our original plan was to move back to Wrightstown Elem. after the 1st grade, we have been so pleased with Henry Elem. that we have decided to stay for 2nd grade. The only thing that would make it better was if KIDCO was the after school program instead of Happy Hours. Happy Hours is a LOT more expensive. FYI: KIDCO is not at Wrightstown either. Wrightstown uses YMCA

Henry is a fantastic neighborhood elementary school. My son transferred to this school at the beginning of 4th grade and quickly felt welcome and important. The principal is amazing and all the teachers and staff are great. My second child is entering kindergarten there this fall and I know she will have a great experience.

I feel that henry elementary provides a top-notch education for young children. The teachers are professional and highly educated. I sent my child there from kinder through 5th grade and found my child to be thoroughly prepared for junior high.
