    "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."

    "We love Henry! It's a huge leap of faith sending your kid to a Philly public school these days, so glad we did. My daughter is happy, her teachers are great and always available, the new principal is aggresively pushing academic standards higher, keeping the arts a big focus, raising the bar on safety and seems on the ball. Smartboards in the classroom, music, art, computers and gym every week (starting at K), band, musicals, after school clubs, field trips, G & T, Autistic Support and everything in between, organic garden that the students work in, rad programs like Playworks, tons of parent involvment and a super PTA, diversity in race, religion and types of families. Not saying all is perfect: the building is older, I'm sure we will go through a year with a teacher we don't like (everyone goes through this folks), and my fingers are double crossed that Principal Rogers kicks the PSSAs from good to the best (ie: Meredith). Though it is a top 10 feeder for Masterman! Go to a PTA or Knowing Henry meeting and take a school tour. That's what we did. It blows my mind that people will move out of the neighborhood or turn to private school rather than just tour this school."
