Henderson County Schools Reviews

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...).

Henderson County High School offers a variety of Advanced Placement courses, which is not a commodity in my state of Kentucky. Most schools offering these challenging courses are either private and expensive or in a large city hours from rural areas. The middle schools in the county itself provide with many various opportunities to gain high school credit. These opportunities include getting a year of foreign language completed before high school, getting up to 2 years ahead in math, and taking a year's worth of a class over the summer in order to get it out of the way. This allows for students to take more AP classes in high school in order to weight their GPAs and better prepare for college. Henderson as a whole does an exemplary job of preparing students. Elementary schools prepare the students for middle school, the middle schools prepare the students for high school, and the high school prepares students to be college and or career ready.
They're lovely and take their time with students to make sure they can receive the best education! All the teachers are loving and have always made the students feel comfortable with coming to them about anything! They have the best guidance counselors ever, they help each student rather its a problem in school or out of school!
