Henley is your average cliché middle school, but a lot more chill with excellent extracurricular activities and electives. The diversity at our school is very poor, and there is some mild bullying.
I guess the worst thing about Henley is the way they sort out their classes. Some classes have 16 kids while others have 36! I think that’s mostly because we’ve had a large influx of kids this year in the sixth grade, and there aren’t enough teachers, especially for kids in advanced/honors classes. I had a friend in a sixth grade honors math class and they had a long term substitute that sometimes didn’t show up to teach their class of 35 kids.
But there are some great teachers here that you don’t want to miss. Mrs Webb, Mrs Schultz, Mr Strzepek, and Ms Vale are all people you really don’t want to miss.
So, in conclusion, Henley is a decent school with some nice people and a few teachers that are absolute gems. It also leads into Western Albemarle, a great high school.

While there is definitely a lack of diversity and some problems with homophobia/transphobia, Henley is generally a great school. The teachers are super nice and helpful (Magistro, Andrews, Strzepek, Timmons, and Bochain are some of the "favorites"), and the clubs and extracurriculars are great. I was on the 8th grade "we the people" team this year, and will definitely be doing it in high school, too!
I had a great year. There is some racial/homophobic bullying that needs to be addressed, but most students are very open and inclusive. Extracurricular activities are great; there is everything from Scholastic Bowl to Environmental Club to Harry Potter Club. The teachers are all mostly fairly good; as a student in the Honors academics, I’d say that they handle things well and are very organized. I can’t speak for Standard and Advanced students, though, and I’ve heard that these people are often overlooked.
