    This school have some good teachers but the principal only listen to herself when making Judgments which by the way are not the best to the student.

    My child been at the Hennessey for 2 year. Last year is much better. The teachers are friendly and hard working. They try to envolve parent all the time. My son love his teacher so much and i see he great work. I juss wish they would give the school a better principal who listen to parents.
