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 don't know yet, need to do more research to compare Henry to other TUSD schools.
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.
