Hendersonville High School (HHS) is one of two public high schools located in Hendersonville, Sumner County, Tennessee. The principal is Bob Cotter, a former principal for the alternative school R.T. Fisher. Two middle schools fill into Hendersonville High: Ellis Middle School and Hawkins Middle School.

The school's colors have been Black and Gold ever since the first Commando football team in 1941, when the Vanderbilt Football program provided the first ever Commando football team with older, used jerseys. The black and gold colors have remained ever since. Hendersonville is known as the Commandos because 54 men were sent to fight in World War II. When they came back as veteran commandos the name stuck with the school and became the official mascot. This can be easily seen at Hendersonville Athletic events, with fans often wearing Commando Army gear, or camouflage, in tandem with school colors.

Hendersonville participates in 6A level sports as a part of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, and maintains athletic programs including track, swimming, softball, bowling, baseball, wrestling, golf, hockey, soccer, football, cross country, marching band, and basketball. The school has a storied rivalry with two schools, Gallatin High School and Beech Senior High School. It also has a relatively new rivalry with Station Camp High School.

Also there is a Marine corps JROTC that students can take as one of their electives.

Taylor Swift attended until she left the school to begin homeschooling on her tour bus. The school's auditorium was renamed "Taylor Swift Auditorium" in Swift's honor after she contributed funds to refurbish the lighting and sound equipment.[1]

The city of Hendersonville has also been named among the top 10 cities for families to live in the United States by Family Circle Magazine. The magazine gave Hendersonville High School a gold star for 315 seniors who logged around 20,000 hours of community service.[2] Academically, Hendersonville has the distinguished honor of receiving a 9/10 rating on greatschools.net.[3]

The Hendersonville High School Band of Gold is widely regarded as the best in Hendersonville with Station Camp High's marching band being their main competition. The 2013-2014 Band of Gold won the most prestigious honor in the schools recent history by winning "Best Overall" at Middle Tennessee's "Bandapalooza" which is held annually. This group also sent one player, Paul (PJ) Scott, to the All American Marching Band program. The band program is also notorious for sending a large amount of students to All-County band as well as Mid-State band programs both hosted by the MTSBOA.
