Testimonials

  • “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 of inclusion from the day we stepped on campus. This is the environment we want for our children.”

    - John P, Middle & High School Parent

  • “Henderson International's evaluation of my daughter revealed that my five year old was reading at a third grade level and she was able to comprehend what she reads at a second grade level. Henderson was the first school that offered her a truly nurturing educational environment and my choice was simple: I definitely wanted her to experience all that Henderson International School had to offer. Thankfully, I have not been disappointed!”

    - Yaa O, Middle School Parent

  • “After the review of my daughter's HIS school transcript in the subject of math, and her high scores on her math placement test, she has been placed in honors Geometry, the highest level of math for high school freshmen and she is doing very well. My daughter has also been placed in honors English, and is at the top of her class in the subjects of Social Science and Spanish.”

  • “From the drone competition and 3D printing to providing violin lessons, Henderson International is teaching students the critical thinking skills necessary to enter professions that have not yet been created and to use technology that has not yet been invented.”

    - Erika A. Christensen '04, Director of Development, UNLV

  • “Our daughter just started her fourth year at Henderson International School as she enters third grade. We are so pleased with her experience as a student and with being part of the H.I.S. community. She has learned so much, as her teachers have provided a challenging environment which has helped her thrive and achieve. The camaraderie with her classmates has contributed to her academic growth. This classroom spirit and teamwork has made school fun. There are many events held throughout the year at H.I.S. for families to interact and for parents to be able to see the culmination of academics and performing arts projects. The teachers keep parents informed so that we can help continue the learning process at home. We are very happy that our daughter is a Henderson Wolverine and look forward to her years ahead at the school. ”

  • “My daughter has been at Henderson International School for 5 years and absolutely loves it. The balance of academic curriculum (a true STEAM program) and co-curricular activities such as P.E, art, theater, music and Spanish. makes the school very special. The teachers are experienced, dedicated staff who truly get to know and care for students, ensuring their academic and social/emotional needs are met. We love the family environment the school creates.”

    - Penny W, Lower School Parent & Teacher

  • “Our years spent at HIS have been excellent. This is my daughter’s 7th year. We have watched her grow into a smart and caring human being. We love being part of the HIS community and the family environment. The school truly focuses on creating a well rounded student by teaching technology, art, science, musical theater, etc. The teachers at this school have gone above and beyond in helping my daughter throughout the years. I can’t say enough great things about the quality of education we have received at HIS.”

    - Linda L, Teacher & MS Parent

  • “I have been a teacher at Henderson International for 4 years. After having taught at many schools, I have finally found my home. Small class sizes allow me to focus and differentiate for each student. I have the time and space to work on the “whole child”, making social emotional curriculum just as important as my other subjects. My students get to experience a variety of extracurricular activities, and they are always being challenged at their individual levels/interests. My daughters have attended as well, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience for them. The teachers at this school are a tight team, and we see phenomenal data/results every year!!!”

    - Mrs. Martin, Teacher & Parent - EC and LS

  • “The school is by far the best private school around. My kids have gone here for 6 years and they both enjoy it very much. My daughter is in 9th grade with small classes that help her focus on what she needs to work on and provides a challenging but fun experience. It's one of the few schools, if not the only, school in the state that provides freshman with multiple AP class options instead of only Human Geography. The campus is warm and welcoming with an amazing staff and great teachers.”

    - Karen, HS & LS Parent

  • “Our child has thrived here. HIS offers unparalleled academics in a small class size supportive environment. The teachers and staff are the heart of this school - they are smart, caring educators who truly cater to each student's needs, and the families form a close community that welcomed us warmly when we joined.”

    - Sarah S, Elementary School Parent

  • “My kids have been attending this school since they were 3 years old, from preschool all the way to high school! One of the many things I like about Henderson International School is that every morning after drop off, I know my kids are in a safe family friendly community, as if it were home. Their methods of teaching and education help the kids go out of their comfort zone and start exploring and learning without the stress of learning! Each kid has an individual learning plan that fits their needs and abilities. None of the other private schools has these extracurricular activities that start from Early Childhood. You should see the most shy kid in class singing and performing on stage or doing a comedy sketch!”
