Henderson county high school is quite an experience. Moving from a middle school with maybe 600 kids, to a school of over 2,000 students is such a drastic change. Most freshmen tend to freak out over this, but the administration and faculty of Henderson county high school helps to make us all feel comfortable, with flexible schedules and adjustable time frames during the first week of school. Over all, if you're in the Henderson area, hchs is a great place to attend!

I have had a great experience at HCHS. I am involved in several organizations - Student Ambassadors and community service group. I am also involved in music. New School of Fine Arts offers a wonderful opportunity in art, band, theater, dance, and voice. Career and Technical Unit is state of the art and offers many tracks to pursue - nursing, culinary arts, visual communications, construction, auto, engineering, agriculture, etc. Many AP class offerings. Lots of ways to get involved!
Henderson county high school provides a secure environment that allows students to focus on enhancing their education. They also provide many opportunities to go above and beyond with schooling with the use of many AP classes and independent study opportunities. The schools also has one of the top academic teams in the state, allowing participating students to feel real competition in tournaments and contests. Along with a star academic team, we possess an amazing dance team that goes to Nationals almost every year. The teachers at the school all share a passion for teaching and encouraging students to succeed. The administration also shares this passion. Because of this, they continually reward success and encourage students to move on to college.
