    Patrick Henry is a wonderful school! The teachers and staff are top-notch very caring personable and competent. I've had 2 children at PHES and I cannot sing enough praises for this school.

    The faculty and staff are out of sight. I have never had such great food as I have had @ Patrick Henry! Our PTO is highly involved and Dr. Montgomery is a fine principal.
