Henry High is comprised of many great qualities that encourage the success of the students throughout the years. The climate is kind and students share a broad compassion for sports and clubs. The student body is consistently present at sporting events to support teams and continually participate in clubs that serve the community. Not only are the students willing to help their peers both on and off campus, they show readiness for entering the adult life, due to the advanced education that is readily available. Students are encouraged to participate in Advanced Placement classes, giving them opportunities to raise their GPA, which helps with college competitiveness. Henry’s academics helps students prepare for college and beyond.

At Henry High School, I like the emphasis on the academic excellence among the students. The teachers, counselors, and administration push for the students to make an effort in their studies, and challenge themselves in their classes. If there were to be something to change at Henry, I think it should be a more encouraging attitude towards being involved. I think that sports, clubs, and other extra-curricular activities need to be promoted and accepted by students, teachers, and administrators.
During my experience at Henry High School, it seemed very average to me. Every year I would have great teachers and awful teachers, as you would expect from any high school. The admin are fairly friendly to most students on campus, faculty and the same. Some departments are heavily budgeted and it affects classes and their quality. Environment is fairly nice, besides the occasional fights that breakout.
