Open Quote Patrick Henry makes use of the much derided Success for All reading program. A canned, scripted and exceedingly poor curriculum. If your child is at all proficient in reading, he/she will quickly exhaust all of the quality books and begin reading the same titles again and again. Worse still, because the program is scripted and all teachers are told exactly what to say, to the minute, creative, innovative and quality teachers leave this school in droves. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter goes to K at Patrick Henry Elementary. At first we are little skeptical about the school. But now after several months we are very very happy with this school.
Specially the principal and stuff are excellent workers. Every time for any kind of help we always get professional help.
We thank you for those helps. And also we hope they stay like that. I know in no time this elementary school will become one of the best school in the nation.
Thank you again for teaching my daughter.

Open Quote I have two kids at Patrick Henry and I could not be happier with the school, the teachers, and the principal. This school is filled with passionate and creative teachers, who really care about their students. The principal and her team are working really hard to get the scores up but without sacrificing actual learning. This is a school full of diversity and Ms. Bynum, our principal, celebrates it and makes it a point of strength. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
