    "We ve had a very good experience with Kindergarten this year. Our oldest is thriving in the classroom, with a strong curriculum and excellent teacher. The focus is on fundamentals (particularly reading and math) but also includes science, social studies, art, music, computers, and PE each week. Class sizes can be large (the two K classes are at 30) but Henry augments with aides and student teachers. There is a sizeable and active contingent of parents, with an active PTA and several other contributing groups in the community. The main drawbacks for us involve facilities and the challenges that trickle down from being part of the PSD. The buildings and grounds are less than lovely, and don t receive enough maintenance and upkeep. The annual budget dysfunction within the district can make each summer nerve-wracking for both faculty and parents. We understand that the public model (at least in Philly) doesn't work as well for everyone, and no school is a good fit for every kid. But we're confident that our children are getting a sound education at a good neighborhood school. All in all, we're very happy with the decision we made to send our kids to Henry."

    "My two children attend Henry, our neighborhood school. We have been very fortunate to have wonderful teachers who go above and beyond the required curriculum to engage the students. While it's a challenge to be part of the PSD, there is a lot of parent involvement within the school and support from the neighborhood community. There are high expectations for the children attending Henry in terms of learning, behavior, and attendance which are easily attained with parental involvement. I did not give the highest ratings because there is always room for improvement."

    "My daughter is in 2nd grade and has been at Henry since kindergarten. So far we have had nothing but good experiences. Her teachers have been great, and she has excelled in her reading, writing, and math skills. The music teacher is fabulous - kids and parents all love her. They also have art, computers, and Spanish in addition to gym and Playworks. The older grades have an instrumental music program too. We moved to West Mt. Airy specifically for this school, and it was a great decision!"

    "I feel very lucky to have Henry as our public school. Our son is having a great experience there, and we know that he's getting an excellent education. Our daughter was accepted into Masterman after attending Henry for five years."

    "I strongly believe that CW henry is highly over rated. My child is in the kindergarden classroom and I do a better job teaching my child at home. Also there is a lack of communication with principle and employees in the main office tend to be very rude and unprofessional at times. School can also use help with maintenance."
