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

With STEAM becoming increasingly embedded into our middle school curriculum, Mrs. Bassa identified a new opportunity to incorporate an engineering initiative, which would capture the creativity, imagination and inquisitive minds of our older students. As a credible 7th and 8th grade science teacher, Mrs. Bassa was not afraid to push the boundaries, and try something that would challenge both herself and our students. Mrs. Bassa proposed the idea for an engineering focused LEGO robotics program, which was greeted with enthusiasm from within the middle school team. Working hard to research a topic she had only recently discovered, Mrs. Bassa turned her mind to ensuring the program became a reality. Her passion for STEAM activities, and her ability to identify opportunities, ensures that both the science department and electives program will never stand still. It encourages the rest of us to be bold and to explore new possibilities for our students. Ideas such as these help us keep ahead of other schools, and develop students that are not afraid to explore. In gratitude to Mrs. Bassa, the LEGO robotics program is now a fully functioning STEAM elective, which we hope over the coming months and years, will grow and feed the minds of our students. 

Taking STEAM to a new level

Student Highlight

This past winter, about a dozen HIS students completed the PSAT, SAT or ACT college entrance exams as part of our affiliation with the Center for Bright Kids. Lynus’ exceptionally high ACT score caught the attention of Duke University’s Talent Identification Program. Duke’s program recognizes the top five percent of seventh graders in the country, and Lynus will be honored at the 2017 Grand Recognition Ceremony at Duke University in Raleigh, NC on May 22. But Lynus’ scores weren’t just high, they were among the highest of the top five percent, qualifying him to take courses at an elite summer program on the campuses of Davidson College, Wake Forest and Trinity College, as well as online courses. Duke University describes the summer program as “challenging, offering an advanced intellectual experience that is equivalent to a semester-long college course.” Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth also took notice of Lynus’ high marks. He has been invited to the campus of Johns Hopkins University to receive high honors at the Grand Ceremony this fall. As one of the top performing honorees in the country for his age group, Lynus is invited to participate in the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Intensive Studies Program in both math and humanities every year until he graduates from high school.   Lynus is a true Wolverine. He has attended HIS since preschool and continues to grow every year as an exceptional student, musician, global citizen and role model for younger students.
