    My son enjoys attending school at Henry. My son has been a target for bullies since he was a toddler starting with another child who liked to bit when he was only 3 yrs old. In grade school a parent responded to a bullying complaint by stating "my son is only in kindergarden." In 6th grade bullying decreased thanks to the efforts of teachers and admin staff Henry - this year we not had a since bullying occurance. Thank you Henry teachers and staff!

    I am a student at Henry world school. I love my school my teachers and principal truly care about us. They want us to have a future and be what we dream about. They encourage us to work hard and do our best everyday. Those of us who want a education are given the.oppurtunity to get it.

    I realize there has been some bad press about HWS recently. The truth is yes this horrifying assault did happen. However it in ONE horrible event that happened. It is not like that on a daily basis. My child watched the news stories and he was soo angry. "That's not fair! That's not what my school is like. I feel safe in my school!" Henry has caring teachers and a dedicated principal. There are so many good things that happen at Henry on a daily basis. My son has been bullied and there are policies in place with clear steps on how the staff are dealing with bullying he feels safe at school! The principal has an open door policy. You want to talk she is ready to listen. Don't listen to the skewed news stories come in and see for yourself the clean safe supportive environment at Henry World School.

    My daughter has been at Hanry for 3 years now and I love Henry. The teachers and staff are caring and supportive. It is just sad that the news chooses to focus on the 5% of the student body that causes all the trouble. What about the 95% who are involved with the IB Program student activities sports and getting a good education? Parents need to step up a be involved in their kids education!

    Students who conspire to get the teacher out of the classroom. Students who look on and video as a helpless 14 year old is beaten. An administration that ignores pleas from victim. Not the traits of a great or even medicre school.

    My son has been at Henry for a year and a half. I am very impressed with the staff and especially the administration. The teachers want to see the students succeed. The principal is mplementing wonderful programs and standards for everyone to live up to. It is a caring environment that encourages parents involvement. I am so glad this is my son's home school.

    This is the 3rd year my son has gone to Henry World School and I am extremely disappointed. I don't feel like my son is challeged enough. I don't think they handle bullying well and something needs to be done about the gang activity. I think my son should feel safe at school and not have to wonder if he will be getting into a fight. I also have a daughter who is a 6th grader at DSST and they have little tolerance for bullying which I think is great.

    My children attended Henry and I was so pleasantly surprised. I'll be honest I didn't want to send them there at first but travel restrictions forced me to. I AM SO GLAD IT HAPPENED. What a fabulous school. The principal is amazing. My daughter had a few teachers that weren't my favorite but I think that happens everywhere. (One of them is already gone). I don't remember there being that many sports and other programs when I was in Jr. High. Academics are great for high and lower achieving students parents are always welcome and you walk in and you can feel the energy and friendliness. The MYP is the icing on the cake. If I had more kids I would send them to Henry no matter where I lived in the city.

    Can't say enough good things about Henry MS. The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP) is fantastic the staff is energetic and committed and the leadership is enthusiatic and unparalleled. My children have done very well at Henry were well prepared for Kennedy HS's continuation of the MYP and are planning on extending to the IB Diploma Programme. Well-rounded education with a lot of extracurricular activities available. I highly recommend Henry MS.

    We have enjoyed the experience and education that our son has received at Henry. We really enjoy the new IB program.

    Henry is in a good neighborhood and has good support from it's teachers. Academics are a little weak but they are working to improve it. The principal is Ms. Lanier. She is very willing to work with parents and students when ever she is asked.
