Moving here from San Francisco, I am so impressed and pleased with HMS. It's very easy to witness and get a strong sense of love and passion from all teachers, counselors, principal and vice principals. If you contact them, they will respond within a day if not sooner. We are also very blessed to be part of the music program. These teachers/directors love all the students like their own.

A Former 7th grade Student Henry was great, but all bullying issues were brought to the vice principal. I have nothing else against him besides the fact that even though he did something about bullying, he didn't do enough. Because the bullying on me still continued. Other then the bullying issue, this school is great. The teachers are nice, they challenge you, they let you go outside for the last ten of lunch if you are in 7th grade, and you have a snack shack. The Pep Rallies are really entertaining. If you are one of the popular group, go here because the populars don't get picked on.

I'm currently a student here and the education is great, but the teachers tend to ignore the bullying, with words or physical, I personally have been shoved into.lockers and nothing was done.the school needs to work on unishmenpt. Suspending a student isn't going work I it actually makes it worse for the victim

I have attended Artie L. henry Middle School since 6th grade. I am now an 8th grade student in all pre-ap classes. my teachers were amazing in every single grade and each year they provided me with the intelligence that I will need to have for when I go to Vista Ridge High School next year. I know that my friends and I have had an outstanding year with our new teachers and our peers. If anyone were to have me think of the first word that came to mind when they said Henry Middle School, it would have to be FANTASTIC!! There is just no other way to describe what this school is. We are one big and huge happy family. Just about everyone gets along and we all have a great time at Henry. I doubt I would like any other school around where I live that I am zoned for any more than Henry. I would recommend sending anyone here. I feel that they have a great teaching community along with the fun activities and good kids. 99.9% of people who go to this school, have gone to this school, or will go to this school will hopefully say the same as many people think and express. I don't know where I would be without my family. They are great and incredible. Thank you everyone!!! I love you all!!!!!!!!

If I had not noticed the bruises on my child I would have been unaware that he was facing these troubles on his own;. Artie Henry middle school and Vista Ridge ; with the three suicides that have occurred in our school district and many current pending lawsuits you would think that instead of the schools trying to cover up these incidents they would deal with then in an open and honest way; they are supposed to be zero tolerance schools. The only zero tolerance they show is zero tolerance to following guidelines and laws that are in place to ensure the safety of our children. I have put in an official complaint about both these schools. Please let me know what you think? Please like our facebook page Stop Bullying in Leander ISD

Our chiild entered HMS as an 8th grader from out-of-state. We have had nothing but positive interactions with every faculty and staff member this year! The teachers, counselor, administrators, and staff have gone many extra miles to help our child, who has special needs, succeed. The curriculum is challenging, and the school atmosphere is very positive. We LOVE Henry Middle School!

My daughter is in 6th grade. She has only been attending Henry for about a month but she loves it so far! Her old school had bullies that stressed her out. So far she has really been on top of her schoolwork and her grades are As. Her mom and I are as happy as she is.

I really love attending HMS, it's an awesome school with outstanding staff, extracurricular activities, and students. The standards there are pretty high, but ensures success in students. Everyone's so nice and encouraging, it's a blast!

We were very happy with the 6th (team H) grade teachers. They seem to have very good communication about thier students. They all have had A LOT of teaching experience and it seemed like the discipline was a no nonsense approach. They are always in the hall interacting with students. The 6th grade has thier own hall in front of the school. We really liked that our son was not with 7th or 8th graders. The principle is very receptive to any questions or concerns and so are the counselors. We like how the same counselor and assistant principal follow the students from 6th through 8th grade. They had a wonderful 6th grade camp before school started. This really helped our son with this transition. The parent orientation in the gym is very informitve, but crowded. We had a good year!!!

My child was a 6th grader last yr and absolutely loved it. Her grades were the best they had ever been and she discovered a love for athletics as well. We can't wait for a wonderful 7th grade year.

Henry is a fantastic school! My son is in 7th grade and has loved the school year. He is in team 7M and we couldn't ask for a better group of teachers! We've had a great experience with his counselor as well.

My daughter has thrived at Henry Middle School. The teachers have been wonderful, she's joined clubs and teams and has become active in her school and has enormous school spirit. We are well on our way with a positive school experience and are academically ready for high school.

We have been terriably dissatisfied and dishartened by the 7th grade teaching staff and the lack of support by the counciling office. It has been an awful year and we are looking in to other options for our child's education. (Teachers are what made us rate overall quality as a 2)

This is a WONDERFUL school. The teachers are strict, fair, and nice all in one. Bad behavior is not tollerated at all. I recomend this school for anyone moving into the area. Enthusiastic and experienced principals and teachers. Great band and choir programs. Gifted and Taleneted programs or QUEST teachers and atmosphere is Amazing! A Feeling of safe environment for all students. Great extracurricular programs. Sports and coaches are wonderful as well. Also, the school Pep-Rallys are a BLAST.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
