Community ratings & reviews

    I absolutely love Henderson Middle School. It is an excellent example of what a middle school should be. My daughter is a seventh grade student. She says she loves school! That is not a common thing to hear from a child her age! She has grown and matured so much since she has attended Henderson. The teachers and administrators genuinely care about each and every student. When problems arise they work closely with the parents to get the children back on track. I always feel welcome to talk to her teachers. I feel like they want my child to succeed. My husband and I have raised four daughters. They range in age from 31 to 12. The three oldest girls all graduated from Ga. Public schools. They are all happy successful young women. Henderson Middle School surpasses every school that I have been associated with by far! My daughter has learned so much. She has been encouraged to be a leader in our community because of the loving support she has received at HMS. She has one more year there and then off to high school. I only hope her experiences at high school are as great.
