I'm in my first year at HMS, as I previously taught in Virginia. I love this school. Some of the students have behavior issues, but is that not a problem at any school? Dr. Hargrove is an oustanding principal and is very supportive! I love the administration and staff here. Its much better than any charter school out there. Ugh! Now, statewide, I hate what NC is doing. They are trying to destroy public education. Taking away teacher tenure is a ridiculous idea, as is removing the bump up in pay for getting your Master's Degree. I wish this school was in Virginia, because at least the Old Dominion state supports public education. The fact that there is declining support for public schools at the state level is the only reason I'm considering moving back to Virginia to teach. HMS rocks!

When I first moved to Henderson I heard alot of negative things about this school. But from my own experience this is a really good school. My daughter and I moved from Virginia and when we entered into Henderson Middle School everyone was very helpful and nice. Moving in the middle of the school year is hard for any child to deal with and they really made the both of us feel welcome to the school and my daughter is learning alot .

HMS is doing its best to reach all students at all levels. The student population is not much different than other schools. One major hurdle is the lack of funds and resources to help get the job done. Parental support from home is needed for everyone to accomplish success. Just showing up for class is not enough. Classwork and homework must be done.

My child has experienced his worst school year yet at Henderson Middle School. The administrative staff is awful! If your child has disabilities then this is definitely not a school for them. Take my advice and hunt a home elsewhere or a private school. Bullying would be another concern.

The Principal Is great but my daughter has been complaining about her math teacher. She says her teacher doesn't teach them nothing and disrespects them she says they teach their selfs.If the school Doesn't do anything I will.

My child is currently in 8th grade. Upon him entering middle school, i have to admit i was nervous. But my child has adjusted well and has remained on the a, b honor roll. Any question or concerns i feel that mr fenner has always addressed.

My opinion is that Henderson Middle School does not have enough services for a disabled child. She is being passed on to the next grade level. My daughter is in the 7th grade and reads on a first grade level. I feel as if I am teaching her on my own. I do not think that she should be passed if she is not academically progressing in certain subjects. I'm trying to get her teacher to understand that. I am in the process of finding other services, tutoring, and programs that can assist.
