I absolutely love Henrico High School! The Center for the Arts is amazing, offering dance, visual arts, theatre, and musical theatre. The teachers are the best in the county, all loving the children as their own. Many of my former teachers and I still keep up. With the general population, CFA, and the IB program, students are exposed to all kinds of people. The school has great sport teams and an amazing theatre department who just performed Shrek the musical The school food is not very good, but more than half of our school is on free or reduced lunch so they do the best the can to make it good but free.

I enjoyed my experience at Henrico High School! The teachers that I had were passionate about teaching and thoroughly helped me through my journey. My counselors and administrative staff made sure that we all were safe and they answered all of our questions. The environment at Henrico, however, could have been safer and more accepting. Nonetheless, I made some of my closest friends at Henrico.
My experience with Henrico High School was good for the most part. There wasn't as much parent support and involvement as I had hoped for. Also, it was clear that sports such as football and basketball were the main priority. The softball program wasn't given a lot of funds, and weren't even allowed to have a permanent fence because football would use our field sometimes. The equality for sports was not there at all. The teachers at Henrico were the best. They were so supportive, helpful, there when you needed them, and made sure I was prepared for college. The school safety was good, I felt safe and protected at school. The arts program received nice things such as breakfast some days unlike other programs such as IB. In terms of clubs and activities, Henrico was a very involved school. There was always an event taking place, and we were involved with our community as well.
