Our Stories

“The #1 benefit is the "personalized learning plan" where the teacher works with the parents to identify areas of improvement for each individual child, because each subject is not one-size-fits-all. I love the "specials" that my daughter never had before like music, art, science lab, Spanish and PE. I also...” read more

“When considering a school for our daughters six years ago, the quality of the education was the primary concern for my partner and me as parents. But for our family, of equal importance was the sense of community and a welcoming environment. With Henderson International School, we had a feeling...” read more

- John Pinocci, Current Middle School Parent

“It is nearly indescribable, the confidence and assurance HIS students seem to have; it must come from years of attending a school where the staff make a habit of learning the student’s names, their individual situations, and needs.”

Teacher Highlight

Lee Shurtleff (shown here with cats Sevilla and Boo) comes to HIS from Adelson Educational Campus in northwest Las Vegas. He earned his bachelor's degree from Menlo College in Atherton, Calif. and his multi-subject teaching credential from CSU Fullerton with an emphasis in bilingual education. He has been teaching for four years, and says he was inspired to teach by his elementary teacher Mr. Barth, who showed him how awesome school can be with a great teacher.  Mr. Lee (who says that has a better ring than "Mr. Shurtleff") teaches first through fourth grade science, and brings his optimistic personality and entertaining style to our students' inquiry lab classes. He says engaging lessons give young students the opportunity to explore and understand the world around them. "In my first year teaching second grade, I organized a grade level STEAM presentation with two other classrooms. Students were assigned different countries to research. Students worked diligently for a month using science, technology, engineering, architecture and math to present their findings in front of their parents. Students recreated monuments, natural wonders and iconic landmarks. They learned about the metric system. They were intrigued by currency exchange rates. It was a great success. The wonderful feedback from students and parents made all of the work worthwhile," he said.  We look forward to seeing his creative approach and passion for exploration. He also coaches a variety of sports, so look for him out on the field this year. Be sure to ask Mr. Lee about the time he thought it was pajama day at school and showed up in a Superman bathrobe. Oops!

Student Highlight

These bright students have been selected as the founding members of the Henderson International School Tech Crew.  Each member was chosen based on their interest in technology, academic merit, and non-academic performance.  It should be noted that this position will endure throughout your child's career at HIS, assuming academic and non-academic requirements are sustained.  Each member will be going home today with their official certificate of membership, to begin in the 16-17 school year. The HIS Tech Crew was created to recognize and train students who have shown interest in holding a technology leadership position in the classroom.  Students may be expected to assist with technology in the classroom, troubleshoot common iPad problems with their classmates, and more.  Crew members will train with Mr. Lindsey throughout each year in a progression from the Kilobyte status up to the much esteemed Yottabyte. I look forward to working with these bright and talented techies! Brandon Lindsey, Educational Technology
