Henry County is a great school. It does very well in academics and is also a leader to many other schools across the country. I’ve learned that other schools actually look to us for guidance. An example would be going back to school this year. HCHS went with a school schedule that was quite different than normal. Others have since followed our lead and taken on the same schedule for students. We are advanced in academics, offering many AP and DE classes. They offer many clubs, groups, and sports options. We provide over 30 different classes for these interests. We have amazing pride in our school and our school teams. Our teachers are also amazing. They help us grab all the knowledge we can to help prepare us to take on the world! A different benefit is lunches. HCHS offers free/reduced lunches to those in need and free breakfast for all. We might not have five star meals but we’ve got everything else in the bag! I would encourage everyone to give HCHS a shot, we truly are amazing!

I love attending school here ! There are many counselors and administrators who provide an endless amount of resources for all students. The amazing and caring staff and teachers try to personally get to know each of their students and are able, and well capable, of giving special attention to students who need it while maintaining focus on academic material to make sure no one falls behind the rest. Classwork can be overwhelming but the classes are always fun and interesting and the school does their best to give students the schedules and classes they want. The school also offers a variety of clubs and extracurricular activities ! There is a club or sport for almost any interest. This school is amazing when it comes to college readiness ! They offer a college readiness class have AVID classes, which I am apart of, and I can truly say I feel much more confident about my educational future after being apart of AVID. Overall, Henry County is definitely a 5 star school ! I love it !
Henry County High School is a smaller school, but I hold it very dear to my heart. Throughout my years here, I was involved in DECA, Student Ambassadors, National Honors Society, and French Club. I am so grateful for the opportunities I was given. Because it is a smaller high school, I knew almost everyone. I understood my classmates and I could provide leadership to them. I absolutely loved getting to be personal with my classmates. Some might not like how small it is, but I absolutely love it. I love how our community gathers together on Friday nights to cheer on our Patriots, I love the atmosphere when I walk in and our principal always says good morning, and I most definitely love how they make sure no student is left behind. There are things that students have missed out on due to COVID-19, but Henry County School System has striven to keep the school year as normal as possible, and for this I'm thankful. I love my school and the lifelong memories it has provided for me.
