    "I have had the pleasure of being an involved parent with Henderson School for approximately 4 years now. I actually followed the current Principal from a school where she SERVED as the Asst. Principal. I capitalized the word "served" because I believe you can only effectively lead after you've served. I have two sons that attend that school and one who've graduated already. This school serves as a beckon of hope for children and families who've been counted out or disproportionately been affected by a political system (our government) who seek to dismantle the public education and privatize it. The Principal and Asst. Principal (as well as teachers) spend countless hours prepping assignments, talking with parents and making themselves available beyond what's required. I appreciate the "Henderson Family." This body of educators and nurturers are why are drive over 7 miles each day (passing several other schools) with my two sons to one of the top schools within the CPS system (in my opinion). As a mother I factor in more than just scores, there is more to me releasing my two angels to a body of educators."

    "No stars out of 5!!!! I hate this school there teachers are in it for a pay check... And they have no books to learn from... They blame the students for everything. The head of the school is a B***H with no patience. Do not I repeat DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO HERDERSON. They will fail your children and they will have no chance in life."

    "The school needs new principal and direction. They lose teachers every year because of lack discipline and support for the teachers. the lack of parental concern or help also weekens the school. I WANTmy children out but its the neighborhood school and whne you try to switch they tell you they are full we in this neighbor hood are trapped."
