Delk-Henson Intermediate School is a 4th, 5th, 6th grades community school. Our aim is to provide each student with varied learning experiences which will prepare him/her for a pluralistic society. Therefore, our school cultivates the intellectual, social, moral, aesthetic, and physical qualities of individual students. To prepare students for the challenges of an ever changing society, attention is given to providing a sound foundation of basic skills and knowledge that will enable the student to progress from level to level throughout the system and to enter secondary activities.
Each student is encouraged to develop responsibility, values, and respect for the rights of others. We encourage, in all courses of study, the ability to think and communicate critically, as well as creatively. To implement these goals, we believe that discipline is essential to the maintenance of a learning environment and to the personal growth of each student.
Since we are a community school, a tradition-rich environment has developed. A sense of mutual school-community belonging fosters school pride and nurtures academic success. We feel there should be a free exchange of ideas among the principal, faculty, students, parents, and community in implementing, expanding, and improving every facet of our school.
