I'm going into my 3rd year at Henderson High School and so far it has been a great experience for me! There are a lot of clubs and extra curricular activities to choose from and there is always something for everyone! The students here really get involved with sports and come out and support the teams. Homecoming week is also really fun because all of the grades compete against each other to earn points for their class and to raise money for their class. Overall, it's a great school with a good learning environment!
Review Henderson High School
Henderson is a great place to learn and expand knowledge; however, some teachers can be too harsh, confusing, and downright rude to students, which at times hinders their learning. Overall, the school is a great place which allows the students freedom to learn and express themselves. Henderson is filled with amazing faculty who truly care about their students mental health, lives at home, and other activities as well as their schoolwork.
Overall, a great school! The teachers really care and are always eager to help the students! I would not suggest buying lunch, but the food is not terrible.
