Henderson Independent School District Reviews

The Henderson School District is overall a pretty good school system. Most of the teachers in Henderson are very nice, and are moderately good teachers. Their are also the occasional really good teachers who find a way to make a class interesting, but with that being said their are a few bad teachers who can’t control the very disrespectful students which does not allow the students who actually want to learn to have the environment they need to do so. The biggest problem is the coaching of sports because overall they don’t actually coach they just throw you to the wolves and see how you do. The coaches are nice people, but they are just not willing to work with people to make them better, as well as, if you know the right people you are automatically a starter over they people who bust their butts.

Henderson High School has been a wonderful experience to me. The faculty is very understanding, and is always there whenever you need them. There is a variety of really good academics they offer to everyone. Teachers make sure they get you ready for college once you get to your junior and senior year. The school is also really big on sports. Teachers and other faculty members are not only understanding with athletes, but also as flexible as they can be with their schedules. The only thing I would change about Henderson High School is the dress code. The dress code they have is very strict, and especially to females. Besides the dress code, I would recommend anyone to attend Henderson High School mainly because of their excellent academics and college readiness.
Henderson Independent School District is an overall good school. However, there is very little diversity and every school building is outdated except the middle school which was redone this past year. The other buildings are at least 50 to 60 years old. There is not very much technology usage and there are very few challenging but supportive teachers. The school has a good atmosphere, is very safe, and has good parent involvement. What I would like to see from Henderson Independent School District in the future would be more college funding, better food and more budget allotted to minor sports such as tennis, soccer and track/cross-country.
