C. W. Henry is a neighborhood school in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia. It serves a diverse student population from kindergarten through 8th grade. C. W. Henry has a committed community of parents, students, teachers and administrators. Our students go on to successful high school careers at Central, Masterman, Saul and others.
The Considering Henry group (independent from the PTA) has been meeting since 1999 to serve the needs of parents who are interested in C. W. Henry as a possible school for their children. They monthly meetings between October and April (and a picnic in May) on varying days of the week and offer to parents a place to ask questions of current parents and to talk with each other. The principal attends one of the meetings and teachers attend two other meetings.
Also, there are monthly school tours at Henry on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 9:00am from October to May. Tour groups meet outside of the school office. If there are questions about tours, email cwhenrypta (at) gmail.com.
