I have 3 children at Washington Henry. Their grades range from 1st to 5th grade. This will be our second year at WHES and I am so glad to have my chilren at this school. The teachers care about your children and how they succeed in school. If I have any concerns the teachers are always available to talk. It is an older building and on the small side, but the amazing staff and happy atmosphere make up for that. I know good memories are being made for my children at Washington Henry.
It is a very community minded school that include the parents with the faculty to make the learning experience fun as well as high. They are extremely successful in their educational programs and I have never seen a school so easy to work with. The staff is wonderful, right through to the cafeteria workers and janitors. I can't say enough about the office personel!
My daughter has attended Washington-Henry for the past two years, and I could not be more pleased. They have fantastic teachers, especially at the Kindergarten level, and the student-teacher ratio is one of the lowest in the Richmond area.
I am the parent of 2 WHES students - 5th and 4th graders. We have been at WHES since Kindergarten. We love it and feel so lucky to have our children attending. The staff is warm and welcoming to both children and parents. Teachers seek and welcome a partnership with parents to help their children become successful. Everyone involved in the education of our children at WHES seems to be happy to be there. I highly recommend WHES.
I have two children at washington henry and it is a great school! The teachers are wonderful! My kids love going to school everyday! Parents are involved with a lot that goes on in the school and are always welcomed to visit or have lunch with their children!
My daughter has attened WHES since the second grade. She will be in fifth grade this year. The teachers are wonderful and encourage the children to do their best. I think the SOL scores speak for themselves. The only thing that I see that needs improving is the size of the school itself. It is difficult to find parking and a seat when attending PTA meetings, but that doesn't keep me from going. We just try to arrive early.
