    The teachers and staff are extremely rude and disrespectful of parental rights. I find myself wishing often that we hadn't moved here.

    Henderson staff is that of excellent that care for their student not only educational but their personal lives. My student came to Henderson mid year of the 3 rd grade and we were taken care of from FIDS (740) Main to Henderson w/TLC. I seen this child excell to a Honor student and excited to take the TAKS test and only missed 2. GREAT ! D. Hamilton

    Great teachers and staff. Principal turnaround has been less than I expected but seems to be settled over the last year. The very best teachers overall. Uniforms are a plus in my book! 9 1/2 stars!
