A.D. Henderson University School

 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 and are a Title I Targeted Assistance Program. We have been "A" rated since inception. The Dean of the College of Education, Dr. Valerie Bristor, serves as 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.


Florida Atlantic University Schools is a national exemplary model for school systems and teacher preparation programs improving education for diverse student populations through innovative, faculty-developed research and curriculum.
