Henderson County School District Reviews

The experience I hold with Henderson County is phenomenal. The teachers and staff I have been with since the second grade have always been so kind to me and were always willing to help. I moved to Henderson County when I was seven years old. I was not quite sure what to expect. These past ten years have been wonderful. I knew that if I ever had any trouble, I knew I could talk to the counselors and/ or teachers. I can not really pick a favorite teacher because I love them all. If it was not for their help, I would not have made it this far in my life.

Henderson county school is very friendly. They help you keep up with your school schedule, homework , they like for everyone to be very active. Henderson keep you updated with everything. It has so many activities for many people to join. I have enjoyed Henderson from the beginning of my junior year . They’ve offered me so many opportunities they I take into consideration. That’s what make Henderson an overall good experience for me.
The Henderson County School District is a well run district. They have buses that pass through most of the district, some traveling to the farthest reaches to pick up and drop of students. The district is rich in culture with such a diverse population of students. Their academics are well taught and by very intelligent, creative teachers. The only real problem that I have faced with Henderson County is that there is a large focus on sports, but not on the arts. The arts program is practically non-existent in this district and that is doing the children a great disservice. An arts program will help students focus more in their schoolwork, think more creatively for tests, and overall make them a more well-rounded individual. That is pretty much the only complaint I have for this school district.
