    This school is amazing! My daughter has been attending since K and is now in 2nd grade. She is reading at a 4th grade level and she is already learning multiplication. The administration teachers and staff are all very nice and willing to work with families on any issue. I love this this school!

    I have 2 boys in the preschool program and they both LOVE it! The teachers are awesome and keep me in the loop with everything going on with the kids. My youngest is special needs and is thriving at this school and I know it is from the special care of the teachers!

    I love this school my three children attend. It is a smaller school and the teachers and principal know just about every child. We have an excellent preschool program excellent teachers after school intermural sports for the older kids and many other things that make this school a great place for the kids.

    I have had 3 children in Henderson Elementary's preschool program. I have been very pleased with the teachers and the program. Our children have been very happy as well. They actually want to go to scool every day.

    My son currently attends school at Henderson. I found the preschool excellent. His current teacher seems to have a good understanding of what is going on with her student and in the classroom though they have only been in school 3 days this year.

    Did not have a great experience there. My son attended kindergarten there and was not impressed with the quality of teacher he had. The teacher was no help with any of the concerns I had for my son. Her answers were vague and glossed over the issues that I had. He currently attends another school in the district and I have been more impressed here. The new teacher is more involved and aware and addresses me with straight answers.
