Alexander D. Henderson University School (often referred to as ADHUS, A.D. Henderson, or Henderson) is an elementary-middle school (K-8) on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. We are not a part of the Palm Beach County School System, but we are a public laboratory school under the auspices of the State University System. We have been rated an “A” school for the last 10 years. Our Principal/Director is Dr. Tammy Ferguson and the Dean of the College of Education, Dr. Valerie Bristor, is the Superintendent.
Our students come to us through a lottery system from predominantly the Broward and Palm Beach county areas. Our classes are small and our parent involvement is wonderful!
The faculty members at Henderson have a variety of experience and many are instructors at the University level as well. Our teachers are all involved in research to help Henderson and other Florida schools grow to their fullest potential.
In addition to our outstanding academic program, we offer a variety of extracurricular activities as well as an After School Program.
