The school’s environment is geared towards highly motivated students that are interested in biological, physical, mathematical, technological, and computer sciences.
Student’s must be admitted to the school through a highly competitive process that includes completing an initial application online (due October 14, 2016 at 3:30 pm) and taking an admissions test (on December 3, 2016).
A Mary Ellen Henderson TJHSST Parent Information Night has been scheduled for September 8th at 6:45 p.m. in the MEHMS Cafetorium.
Parents/Guardians of rising 6th grade students: 6th Grade Locker Day will be our last transition event before school starts and will be held on Thursday, September 1st from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.
Students and parents are invited to attend to select a locker from their block ½ A day teacher and practice walking their schedule. Schedules are not finalized until August 31st.
You can print a schedule off at home at that time or get a copy from the MEH counseling office on September 1st. Students typically practice their locker combinations for 10-15 minutes. Afterwards students and families are encouraged to walk around the building locating your classes on their schedule.
Signs will be posted to direct you to the 6th grade pod on the 3rd floor, where the 6th grade teachers and counseling office is located. The two-hour event is informal and you can drop by anytime between 1-3pm. Lockers will only be assigned to 6th grade students.
If you are not able to attend the 6th Grade Locker Day your student will be able to receive their locker and schedule on the first day of school.
We are pleased to announce the release of the latest issue of Mary Ellen Henderson's literary magazine, The Flaming Pen. The Flaming Pen is written, edited, drawn and designed entirely by students, with minimal meddling by Mr. Kelly. The student editorial team collaborated admirably this year to learn about editing, layout and design, and we hope you enjoy the results. Congratulations to all our authors and artists (and editors)!
