I don't think I could be so proud to be a student at Henderson Bay High School. I'm currently attending and love everything about the school. Recently we have had more freshman then we regularly do, but that's not even a bad thing. This is my second year at the school and my grades and respect towards my self have skyrocketed since I started. Thank you to every teacher at Henderson Bay!

It took me 7 years to graduate (due to me being a slacker) but none of the teachers would let me quit. Best high school in the state of Washington!

Henderson Bay is a great place! i am currently a student and i love the one on one basis with not only the teachers, but the principal as well. I am formerly a Peninsula High student and they just couldnt provide the same kind of learning as HBHS does. When i was at PHS i never really went and the got transferred to Henderson Bay, if it wasnt for they diversities in the way the teach, i dont think i would ever be able to say i was a high school graduate.

I graduated from Henderson Bay a few years ago, and I wanted to comment on the Teen Parent Program! What a relief it is that these programs are available. The help and the encouragement from the staff and the 'in-school' child care center could deffinatly make a differance in your childs life! Don't hesitate to contact the school with any questions you have. They are always available for you!

This has been a great opportunity for me to learn at my own level. I am much more motivated about school and since it's work-at-your-own-pace I have gotten my assignments done faster and more efficiently. They work in smaller classes for more one on one attention. We are a very closely knit school of 90 students and everyone gets along I would suggest this school to parents who's children have trouble with regular school.

This school is one of a knind, one on one teacher student teachings and work at your own pace kinda you are perfered to have work done in a time frame but you are not pressured to have it all done in a rediculous amount of time.

I was a teen mother at Henderson Bay and the teachers work hard for their students. If a student has a problem they are there. I graduated proudly from that school.

Henderson Bay High School is the worst school in the world! There is a thriving weapon/drug trade and the school's leadership leaves much to be desired. Please, parents, do not send your children to this horrible place!

Henderson Bay High School is the best thing that could have happened for my son! I can't thank the staff enough for all they do. Their dedication and encouragement to these kids makes all the difference in their lives! Thank you Henderson Bay staff from the bottom of my heart.
