Love this school the teachers and the principal are very communitative towards parents. There are very small classes for one on one time with the students. My daughter has had nothing bad to say about the school and there is no bullying what so ever. It has been great for her and I hope it will for her advancement later on.

I love this school. Great teacher's, and staff. They put your child first. I have a child in K and one in 1st. Could not imagine themgoing toany other school. My other two children in 6th and 7th miss the school. And that says a lot!!

I have four children currently attending Henry at this time and I could not be happier with this school. The teachers are all wonderful, they make the children feel very at home. I feel as though I have a one on one connection with all of my childrens teachers. I am excited with the turn out at PTO meetings. It is refreashing to see parent envolvement in their childs school life. I am very disappointed that my children will not be finishing out this school year at Henry, it will be a difficult challange to find a school like this one.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
