Henderson is an amazing school! There is feeling community with a focus on excellence in education. Very welcoming to me, as a parent. The PTO is strong and important in the success of the students. The faculty seem to be there because they genuinely love teaching. Safety, no-bullying, emotional well being, technology and fun are the areas, besides education, that Henderson excels!
School is fine but I have a problem with the Francis Howell district. My kid gets home at 5pm sometimes later in winter he will be walking from the bus stop at night. They make it really hard to pick up especially if you are a working single parent. I am all for my child's safety but I do not remember school being like a prison camp my mom used to come up with lunch and eat with me to do that now you have to give two weeks notice. Yea right I have a job sometimes I get off early and would like to do that but I do not know when so I cannot give much notice. I am now searching for a private school for next year I here good thing about a local Lutheran school that is safe without the ridiculous rules.
Henderson is a wonderful school for your children to grow in. Both my children, attended from K-5. My daughter had straight A's but was never bored. My son has special needs, but you would never know by how well accepted he was by the students. They both left this school ready for middle school and we miss the teachers everyday.
This school are scholars in every area imaginable : leadership,selection & retention of best qualified prfessionals, encouraged and motivating parent involvement, community oriented (actively involved in community, support local businesses and brought the community to school building relationships one business AND family at a time!
Love the school, the teachers, the principal and asst principal, the vacation station program, all the specials teachers, everyone! The focus on developing the students' character is just as important and will get them just as far in life as the academics. The kids are nice to each other here, which is fostered through the character education.
This is an excellent school, having achieved highest test scores in St. Charles County.
I have a son in 2nd grade at Henderson and has started there in kindergarten. He is a special needs child and requires speech and occupational therapies along with an IEP. I cannot say enough good things about the teachers, the principal, assistant principal, special ed teacher, para-professionals, and therapists. They all work together and really do keep the best interests of the child at heart. Cannot recommend this school any more highly!
