Chester County's Henderson High School is one of three high schools in the West Chester Area School District. Henderson's catchment includes parts of the borough of West Chester and parts of West Goshen Township. Henderson is a blue-ribbon school, and home prices in the area reflect that distinction, averaging near $400,000. These homes can be had for just less than that.
