I am an alum of Hermitage High, and I do believe that attending school there was one of my greatest experiences. No one feels left out at Hermitage because all the students and teachers alike strive to make everyone feel comfortable. I would recommend Hermitage School based on the education as well as the atmosphere. ~Jessica Douglass, 2003 graduate

I am an alumni of Hermitage High School. When I attended this school, I saw and experienced teachers and parents who challenged us to excell, rather than aim for average. This school should be a model for other schools!
