Welcome to Henderson County Public Schools

Henderson County Public Schools is committed to providing all students the opportunity to learn and the encouragement to succeed in a safe environment.  We will honor the individual and nurture the potential of all children.

We are very proud of our school system and the accomplishments of our students and staff. We have a reputation of being one of the top school systems in the state, and we want to continue to achieve at high levels and provide a rich learning environment for our students. The success of our school system is due to our hardworking professionals, our parents, and the support of our community.

It is our vision that every student will achieve success and graduate as a life-long learner, globally competitive, prepared for career, college, and life. We continue to have one of the highest graduation rates in the state and our dropout rate continues to decline. Last year 83.84% of our students went on to post-secondary institutions, 3.86% entered the military, and 12.30% entered the job market. All four of our middle schools have received national recognition for their emphasis on strong academics, sensitivity to adolescents’ needs and interest, and commitment to equal access to high-quality education; thus earning the designation as Schools to Watch. Our SAT and ACT scores continue to be above the state and national average. Our schools continue to receive positive recognition for student performance on the North Carolina ABCs accountability model. Our students excel in many extracurricular areas such as band, chorus, and athletics.
