My family moved to North Carolina in April of 2019. That's right, 8 weeks before the end of my junior year. Hendersonville High has really tried to make me feel at home and a part of the school! The school has lots of activities especially for the senior class. At a medieval banquet this year I finally felt a part of things and am now excited about graduating with the class of 2020.

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 .
