Public Schools

For more than 125 years, Henderson ISD has provided the educational foundation for generations of students in our community. The instruction provided by all six campuses prepares and equips students with the skills needed to build successful careers and fulfilled futures.

HEDCO believes that high school students are our workforce of tomorrow. That is why we applied for and received several High Demand Job Training grants from the Texas Workforce Commission for four straight years. These grants are a 50/50 match and has benefited the Henderson High School’s Career Technology Education (CTE) area of the school and the students in that program.

So far HEDCO has invested over $810,500 in the career tech facilities and equipment over the past four years and was used for the school’s Health Science Lab, Weld Shop, Culinary, Phlebotomy, Engineering and Robotics, Law, Business, Architecture and Construction.

The school district also participates in the Dual Credit Program with Kilgore College, a nearby junior college.
