Superintendent Bo Caldwell

From the Henderson County Board of Public Education, staff, and students, I would like to welcome everyone to the Henderson County Public Schools.   Our district is recognized throughout our region and state for academic excellence and strong traditions.   It is my great privilege and honor to serve as your Superintendent and to work collaboratively with the Henderson County Board of Public Education, administration, staff, and community.  Our community believes in a strong commitment to education and that dedication is very evident in the programs and opportunities available to our students.   We continue to have one of the highest graduation rates in the state and our drop-out rate continues to decline. 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 accountability model.

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.  Each classroom setting will provide best practiced, well-researched instructional strategies and high expectations for all students.  Henderson County Public Schools provide opportunities for students to excel in and outside of the classroom and recognize the importance of experiences and activities beyond the school day such as performing and visual arts, athletics and clubs.

Henderson County Public Schools understands the need to offer a competitive education and to provide meaningful technological opportunities for students and teachers.  Our goal is to provide students with a comprehensive, hands-on use of technology.  Our emphasis will be technology implemented as an instructional tool and intertwined throughout instruction.

We encourage everyone to be a part of the Henderson County Public Schools community.  Please take the time to visit one of our schools by attending an athletic event, or enjoy a theatrical performance or musical concert.   Whatever the reason for your visit, it is our hope you will feel excitement and enthusiasm during your time at one of our schools.

Communicating with our parents and communities about our schools is imperative.  Please take the time to visit our website or follow us on social media through Facebook or Twitter.  The Henderson County Public School District is indeed a place “Where Tomorrow Begins”.
