Henderson Elementary

Henderson is a school rich in diversity and offers an array of programming options and services. Drawing students from multiple neighborhoods, our staff seek to meet the needs of the whole child through attention to academic and social-emotional learning. Staff are organized in teams to plan and problem solve together. Working with our families, our goal is to support student growth that enables them to develop the foundation on their way to college, career, and community.

Welcome to Henderson Elementary

When you enter our school you will notice, experience and take part in our “Core Values” of collaboration, engagement and shared responsibility. These values lead the work we all must do to empower our students and provide them the opportunities to feel and know what success is.
