The Henderson International School is a private pre-K through 8th grade college preparatory school located in Henderson, Nevada, United States. It was also a high school until 2010.[1]

History[edit]

In 1992, the Henderson International School, formerly known as Warren-Walker, was founded.

In August 1999, Warren-Walker added an additional campus at 1165 Sandy Ridge Avenue, Henderson, Nevada, 89052. This additional campus allowed Warren-Walker to expand classes from preschool through High School (Pre-12). Warren-Walker was governed by a Board of Directors made up of parent volunteers through 2006.

During the fall of 2005, the Board of Directors was approached by Meritas LLC, a company seeking to build a number of private schools around the world, with an offer to take over the school. At the time, Meritas owned one school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida - the North Broward Preparatory School. After considering the Meritas offer, the Board of Directors approved the sale.

Over the course of the first ten months, Meritas invested over $4M in a new athletic field for the Upper School, technology upgrades for both campuses, a new pool, an outdoor café, a school store, a digital media studio for high school students, and a number of new teachers. In addition, the new leaders introduced the International Baccalaureate program into the middle school curriculum.

In 2010 the high school and two of the three campuses were forced to close due to financial difficulties.[2]

Athletics[edit]

Henderson International's athletic department is led by . In the 2009-2010 school year the Wolverines softball team placed first at the 1a State Championships as well as the Southern Nevada Regional Championships.

The school is also the base for the Findlay Prep basketball team, which has won the National High School Championships two years running.

The Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League use The Henderson International School as their practice facility.[3]
