Overall so happy with our school! I feel our kids have grown so much not just academically but as caring individuals since attending HIS. I don't know of any other school in this area that offers the extent of specials (Spanish, arts, hands-on science, PE, and technology) as Henderson does.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
the teachers are so dedicated and engaged in their students. I went to public school myself and I know that the teachers at Henderson invest so much in their students and their teaching in comparison.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
a lot of the homework is technology based which makes it easier since (at least my kids) are more motivated. they are allowed screen time when homework is completed

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
they have a team of specialists that will work with any kids who struggle. teacher / student ratios are also really low (less than 20 in each class, even in 3 and 4 grade) which helps if your kid needs extra attention (even if not a specific learning difficulty)

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
frequent and effective communication via email and also through a grade level website with a calendar and with notes from the teachers there are parent nights on different topics which are a great way to meet other parents and get information on not only educational topics, but on things like internet security for kids




- a
I've read some previous comments about homework and my thought is that I want the learning to be happening at school, not at home. That's what I'm paying my money for. The school day is long - why would I want my kids to come home after all that and have to do hours more of homework? I want them playing and engaging with the world, not sitting and doing more tedious paperwork. I've read a lot of articles about the current research and it shows that homework is often over-rated, that at the elementary level especially it actually can be more detrimental than helpful. I like that this school has nightly homework, but it's not too much and a lot of it is online, so we don't have all those papers going back and forth, plus my kids get instant feedback from the online program, which can't happen with paper homework.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
I've experienced very little real bullying with my kids at this school. And it feels like students' behavior keeps getting better each year.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
I know they do a lot of small group instruction, plus they have extra experienced teachers that work with different groups of students at different levels.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
They started something they're calling Citizenship Awards this year, and students from preschool through elementary are nominated by teachers and receive recognition for these various positive character traits. I think it's great and makes these student winners role models for their friends and peers.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
These teachers at HIS are so dedicated and hard working. They create a warm, family feel because they seem to know each child as an individual. Their styles and personalities are different, so you get a slightly different experience each year, but the overall results are wonderful. The kids at this school are outgoing and thoughtful and engaged and happy, and I think that's a reflection of the strong teaching.
