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

Teacher Highlight

"Creativity takes courage."  ~ Henri Matisse   Mrs. DiBenedetto is another familiar face, with another tricky name! Mrs. D stepped in to our art studio last year as a guest teacher, and she blew us away with her digital design skills. She is back with us full-time this year and we can't wait to see what she does with our Adobe Suite!  Dorothy DiBenedetto holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors degree from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif. She specializes in Art History and Graphic Design.  She has worked as an educator for the past six years, and she says her greatest joy is seeing eyes light up and the smile of accomplishment from a child.  "I live for the 'light bulb moments,' the electricity created by young minds that soak up information like sponges. The imagination of innocence fueled by curiosity is a goal," she said. "Art is a passion and to share that experience is so intoxicating."  Mrs. D says some of the funniest moments teaching young children is when she tells them about growing up without Google, cell phones, or video games. Imagine having to go to a library and having fewer than 100 tv channels to choose from? One young student said to her, "boy, you must have been miserable." She almost fell out of her chair.   Mrs. D loves old movies, great music, and painting. She says her teaching philosophy this year is all about believing in the power of your thoughts. So let's see what our art students dream up this year and watch them make it happen!

Student Highlight

Hundreds of projects from across Southern Nevada were submitted to the UNLV Elementary Science Fair, all of which had been selected to represent their respective schools.  The competition was fierce.   Our HIS judges determined that six of our students’ projects would be entered to compete.  Chris and Gavin placed 3rd in the third grade division!  Well done!  Their project, entitled “Will It Survive an Earthquake”, dazzled the judges.  The boys used an earthquake simulator that could test structures of varying heights.  The structures were made of Legos.  Their idea was original, and the accolades they received well deserved!  Pictured here are Chris and Gavin with the Director of the UNLV Science Fair.  We can’t wait for next year's competition! -Lee Shurtleff, Elementary Science Teacher
