When it comes to Henderson County schools, I would describe them as, well-maintained, high-achiving, and extremely diverse. I love almost all of the teachers! All of the teachers are extremely well educated, and very motivated to seeing the success and prosperity of their students! The only thing that I would change about this unique school system, is the amount of "life" education. It would be nice to learn how to fill out a check, balance a check book, apply for scholarships, buy a house, get a job, or fill out an important application. Otherwise, the Henderson County school system is extremely well organized, and extremely successful in all aspects of school (sociality, academics, athletics, etc...).

I attended Henderson County schools ever since kindergarten and for the most part I loved it. The teachers are very very kind they help every student along the way. It's not all about how good are you in math in henderson county its more personal it's a small community the teachers know your family or your older siblings. It is really amazing what we have in the small county even when i was in middle school the high school was connected and i looked up and when ever i saw the high school games or the high school kids i just looked up to them. Even in athletics every monday and wednesday you have soccer, friday nights football we all join together to support our athletes ands its really nice for me being one too. Some of the things i would of change is more reliable time cause as a student your grinding every day we should throw more pep rallies /assembles in my opinion .
I currently attend Hendersonville High School and I am extremely proud to represent this esteemed school. All of the teachers and administration are infinitely helpful with any little thing you may need. I've been in the school system since second grade, and it has definitely pushed me to succeed. All of the schools have a certain connection to each other and the only sense of competition is sports. I might change how the county decides to spend its money on the school system. we are currently in the process of working on a new school, which isn't completely necessary. That's money that can go back to the students and staff in other, more necessary, ways.
