Patrick Henry Middle School Reviews
Great School, Poor Principal
Two children at Henry. 6th and 8th grade. Wonderful teachers, great assistant principal (she seems to do everything). Mr. Goldstein always very attentive to the needs of my children and takes his time to talk with us (regardless of how busy he is).
Principal however seems out of touch with students and parents. Does not appear confident in this position.
I think that this is one of best school's in the district.
i am going and ms park lets you do what ever you want
i am going and it is very fun i had ms park and she let you do what ever you want.
i went to Patrick Henry and I can honestly say that i love this school and i love the people.i moved there in my 7th grade year and i loved it i made lots of friends whom i still keep in contact with. this school has many amazing teachers but the most amazing is Mr. Derek Neal best history teacher ever.
i was a student there and i have to say, i was so happy when i left there, the only good part of my days at that school was when i got to go into my music class with mr.crawford as my teacher. he was an amazing teacher and was the nicest too, he is a great teacher, and my only favorite teacher
I have a son who move to Patrick Henry, middle school to join the 8th grade magnet program. He is happy at this school.
The principal Mr. Bennett, is caring, and helpful with the students and their parents concerns too, as well Mrs. McCray, the Magnet Coordinator. They have a group of teachers who they motivate my son to do his best, specially Mr.Klein.
I am looking forward for my son's sibling, to joint Patrick Henry next school year 2010-2011!
I attended Patrick Henry for two years. I belive that the magnet program that they run and their advanced technology is what put them on top!
Patrick Henry MS has certainly shown growth over the last 4-5 years, mainly, I think because its Principal, Mr. Michael Bennett, has a clear understanding of what makes an exemplary school. He has done a fine job and as a parent, I am happy to have my two children there.
