Henry County School System Reviews

Like most high schools, the environment is limited. No hats, no snacking, no electronics-- not even between or before classes begin for the day! Hair color is allowed, but piercings are not, and no justification is given. Also, there is no travel off-campus for lunch. This school produces advanced children, not adults, because it treats it's students like children.

I love all the other students! I love the teachers and sponsors! However I do not like the correspondence on things like I have dyslexia and I could not get help with tests or help from anyone with getting extra time for ACT I had help preK-9 in the school I attended prior to going to Henry County I had an iep where I was allowed more time on tests or tests read to me! Henry County took it away from me sophomore year when I started going there for school. I was a straight A student until 4.0 gpa until then as well! Now Act score is 15 because of my reading English score and gpa got down to a 3.6! So that’s all I think they need to improve on!
My school system is one of the best when it comes to preparing students for college. I, personally, believe that my school system, Henry County School System, pushes students in the college pathway more than the career ready pathway. Attention is focused on college prepreparedness and getting students graduated rather than opening the horizon for other students who do not see themselves attending college in the future. I hope that students realize that everyone is different, and that everyone will take their own path in life after high school. The school system I attend needs to realize this; in fact, my school system should invite more diversity. Diversity is important, but it is not recognized in the Henry County School System.
