Henderson County Public Schools Reviews

I enjoyed the atmosphere at football and basketball games, along with a few kind staff. However, Henderson county schools seem to be understaffed, unorganized, and corrupt. The teachers would daily express their disdain for the school system. The popular and rich students that attended the schools would receive special treatment and wouldn't get into nearly as much trouble as someone else who committed the same offense. Many teachers would also show favoritism for the popular/rich students. Also, on many occasions the school food would come with hairs in them, or be cold when meant to be cooked, etc. In addition, the dress code at Henderson county high school was extremely outdated and conservative. For example, girls aren't allowed to wear shirts with sleeves that don't come down past the shoulder and allowed to wear leggings. However, male students have little rules when it comes to dress code. Henderson county public school system needs to get its priorities in order!

As a senior student at Henderson County Highschool, I have been through three of the school's facilities for a number of years, and have family members that work in this public school district. I feel that my experience has been truly average. No public school will ever be perfect, and that is not our district or the facility's fault, but in our government authority even past the state. However, I do believe that Henderson values and nurtures students more than most public schools would. The faculty is wonderful, from the schools I have been enrolled in especially. They help students grow, and truly do what they can to ensure that pupil will lead a successful life. The student body, especially currently at the High School, is quite large, and our facilities struggle to accommodate this often times. In the future, I hope to see our facilities here reconstructed, or at least slightly renovated in a way that benefits our mass population of students.
I really enjoyed going here. I have learned a lot of things mentally and personally. This includes meeting friends, and more knowledge to get me further in life towards my dream job. I have also felt accepted and happy for who I am there. Teachers always know how to help and are patient. I also enjoy the academics that are offered.
