Academics

We personalize our teachings for each student, building critical-thinking skills and creating hands-on learning experiences. This prepares students for success beyond school, for a more impactful college experience, and for rewarding careers.

Academics Overview

Every student receives instruction each day in reading, writing, and mathematics, and multiple times per week in science, social studies, Spanish, performing and fine arts, and physical education. The academic disciplines are complemented by extra- and co-curricular activities. Our private school curriculum and its accompanying extra- and co-curricular activities create well-rounded students.

Henderson International School excels in teaching critical thinking, complex problem solving, and high-order reasoning. Studies indicate a clear link between these skills and eventual success in college and in the workplace. This directs all elements of the Henderson Academic Compass.
