School Notes:

  • Many schools provide an excellent education, but curriculum alone does not dictate a child's success in school...or in life. Having a sense of place, of belonging, of being understood and appreciated - those emotional ties are the fertile ground allowing your child to grow and to reach for the sky. Hendricks provides an outstanding academic experience. What makes our school different is that we embrace the differences among our students. We do not try to fit children into molds of what is typical. We celebrate what makes each student unique. We meet our students where they are academically and emotionally. We build trust and respect. We provide a place where your child feels safe to think, to question...to grow. Hendricks’ comprehensive program goes far beyond the core curriculum of English, reading, writing, math, science and social studies. Our students are exposed to advanced studies, the arts, technology, and other learning programs that nurture the whole child.  Our curriculum is complete, challenging and focused on what is important for each student - For Life.
