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

"Two roads diverge in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." ~ Robert Frost I mean, really, can you think of a better name for a teacher than Mrs. Wise? Shira Wise brings plenty of wisdom to our middle school math department, where she'll teach fifth and sixth grade math, as well as the Findlay Prep student athletes.  Mrs. Wise has been teaching for 20 years, and like many of her HIS colleagues, she has a passion for travel. She has been to four continents and studied in Japan on a Fulbright Scholarship.  "For me, University was an amazing adventure away from home; a time to discover who I was and what my values were. If I could, I would spend my life in this pursuit - reading and studying all things interesting at the moment," she said. Mrs. Wise focuses on empowering students, and their parents, to dream larger than they normally would. She says her students need to feel capable, and that allows them to think big and lead fulfilling lives. Parents play a huge role in creating this mindset. "CAN'T is the worst four-letter word," she said.  "I want parents to understand that despite our need to work, provide for our families, and manage hectic schedules, that we are all pivotal in this process. As a team we can accomplish anything!" she said.  Mrs. Wise has three children who will attend HIS this year, Keziah, Jezreel and Joshua. We're looking forward to welcoming the entire Wise family to HIS.

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.
