Welcome to Wayne M. Henkle Middle School
Home of the Grizzlies!
At Henkle Middle School all students are encouraged to dream and inspired to succeed. We create a culture of safety by valuing diversity, nurturing positive relationships and providing a clear focus on social, emotional and academic success. Students are challenged and equipped with tools to meet rigorous standards. Our students are empowered to become life-long learners and respectful, responsible citizens.
Henkle Middle School serves students in grades seven and eight on a campus shared with Wallace and Prisciilla Stevenson Intermediate School and adjacent to Columbia High School. The school’s well-rounded program of academic, artistic, and extra-curricular offerings helps all students develop to their fullest potential.
In addition to the “basics,” students also receive a strong program in the arts. Students may choose to have band and visual arts as electives, and they can also join in the always-popular musical drama productions. Some of the other electives for seventh and eighth graders include Spanish, robotics, academic games, tech gurus, running club, farm to table, and sketch up: intro to robotics programming.
Henkle Middle School offers a wide variety of extra-curricular, leadership, and enrichment options. From organized sports to academic clubs to informal lunchtime groups, activities at Henkle help students find interests, develop friendships, and move forward with their individual skills. Sports include football, cross country and volleyball in the fall, basketball and wrestling in the winter, and track and field in the spring. Students may also take ski trips, join Knowledge Bowl, serve as student government leaders, and participate in yearbook.
