My kids are in various grade levels and the amount of homework seems about right. It's enough to hammer home concepts but not too much to be overwhelming to the kids. They also teach the kids early on to be independent and self sufficient and give their best efforts. They help them to develop strong study habits from an early age.
This school is like a home away from home. The atmosphere is so loving, nurturing and academic. My kids are getting an excellent education at St. Henry Grade School. It has wonderful teachers who really care about the students. They go the extra mile and are always available and want to assist their students to succeed in whatever way they can. I have 4 children and they all attend this school and my husband and I couldn't be happier.
This school has a very caring family atmosphere in addition to strong academics. The teachers differentiate to meet the students' needs. Our children are getting a well rounded education and strengthening their Catholic identity.
Moved our children from the county school to St. Henry this year. This children have adjusted well and love their new school. We see our children growing leaps and bounds in their education. we love the family involvement and pride within the school environment. We know we are giving our children a wonderful education and a great jump into their future learning experiences.
Teachers care about each student and differentiate instruction to meet different learning styles. The principal is progressive and pragmatic. She has implemented the good parts of what is going on in public schools - RTI, common core aligned textbooks, while still promoting initiatives that support creativity, independent learning, and technology skills. Kids have weekly specials in music, art, gym, library, computers, and Spanish. Computer class in the elementary level is spent learning how to use different applications like PowerPoint and develope keyboarding skills. Starting in 4th grade kids use Chromebooks to do research and complete some assignments. Kids are encouraged to develop a love of reading instead of just reading to pass tests. The parent volunteer community is awesome, welcoming, and supportive. My daughter has had a great experience at St. Henry.
Well-rounded Catholic education. Teachers and staff are professional, caring, and down-to-earth. Good combination. I haven't seen nor have my children experienced any bullying. Everyone seems to mesh well.
The staff and faculty at St. Henry Elementary/Middle School are incredibly caring and qualified. The opportunities for learning and growing are endless - in mind and spirit. The children not only are taught the skills to prepare them for their next steps, but they are also shown great examples of the importance of service to others. I have been involved with this school for the past 16 years and have had nothing but glowing praise for everyone involved with this institution!
The staff is amazing! The principal remembered us from the open house, 6 months later. She greats every student by name as they walk into the school. The teachers are kind and caring. My daughter loves it there.
