My child attended Hendricks for 2 years, 4th & 5th. He had wonderful teachers and an overall great experience. This school definitely prepared him to be successful in middle school. The school staff as a whole are the most caring and child oriented I've experienced.

My daughter attended this school from 1st through 5th grade. I echo the previous review on the principal and administrative staff being very unfriendly to students and parents. The cafeteria is run like a prison and no socializing is allowed. My daughter did however have some excellent teachers and was placed in the high ability program. Overall, I felt that she received a good education there and was well prepared for middle school.

If you have a gifted child, avoid this school. Kids are held back to the level of the slowest person in the class. Our second grade experience last year was so poor that we now drive our child up to school in Indy. Gifted children are held back to grade level.

Hardly no extracurricular activities at this school. Special events that they do have from time to time are a joke. It took me 45 minutes to get into the parking lot of the school at the last fund raising party that was held for the children who sold candy an entire box of candy. Nothing is ever organized well. Other schools participate in fun days such as hat day, slipper day, etc. Not Hendricks this year because the kids didn't sell enough fund raising candy. While other schools in our area did still do their 'fun days' regardless. Everything is about the money at this school. The principal does not strike me as a kid oriented person. She and the entire office staff are always very unfriendly when you enter the school. I wish my kids didn't have to attend Hendricks.
