Our mission is to model a respect for one another and inspire a passion for learning. We do this by engaging in authentic learning opportunities like Project Based Learning (PBL) and cooperative learning structures (Kagan) and by ensuring that Hening P.R.I.D.E. (Positivity, Respect and Responsibility, Integrity, Determination, and Engagement) is interwoven into everything that we do.

At Hening, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to make tomorrow a better place. At Hening, we are all in!
