Engaging Academics

Critical Thinking is the acquired higher-order skill of gathering, organizing, testing and using information. It's a key component of every class at Henderson.

We challenge our students to think and harness the power of their knowledge. This skill will serve them well in college and in life. With our focus on critical thinking skills and hands-on, engaging experiences, our program prepares students to be lifelong learners.

The old factory model of education from the previous century no longer meets our needs. Today’s students, the citizens and producers of tomorrow, need to be able to take their understanding of a concept or skill and apply it in new and often unfamiliar contexts. They need to be able to innovate and creatively solve complex problems; they need to be able to communicate well, both orally and in writing, and work well in teams. These are the types of critical thinkers and complex problem-solvers we’re trying to develop here at HIS.
