This is our first year at Henderson. So far we are very pleased. The students are each given an Ipad to use in and out of the classroom. There are fun extracurricular activities like teacher/student sport games, pep rallies and dances. The communication from staff has been very good (perhaps too much as one math teacher emails daily!). Our child attended a 5A school previously, so the smaller setting was a change, but so far is much happier. There is even an engineering/Lego course 7th graders can take! The material seems to be spot on, and teachers are friendly and encouraging. The building is dated, but clean and not lacking amenities. Do not let the outwards appearance deceive you. We are so happy with this school and with Hardin Jefferson ISD!
Henderson is a very good school. I attended 6-8th grades there, and the material I learned there stuck and helped me all throughout my high school career. Honors level classes and teachers are the best.
