This school was awful. I have no idea why people are saying that the PE teachers are so great. They were rude, they had no idea what they were doing, and they were disrespectful. The teachers were awful. They either talked too much about their personal life or were extremely rude to all students. Some teachers strongly smelled of cigarettes. Great example for students. Yeah, Herman is sooo great. Sike.

It was an honor to have been in this school. Many staff members there have made me felt respected and wanted, which helped improved my self image. I hatted every single moment in PE, but now i really regretted that i had to move because I haven't been to a school that has offered such an outstanding education for PE. This area was were i was able to set goals in my life. It has been nearly 2 yrs since I was a 7th grader in that school and i still wished that I was. This school offers many programs, clubs, and electives to help students to find their best area of expertise for future careers. I hoped that this review will help future students to pick the right school for them.

We've had kids in other junior highs. This is the best! Teachers top notch. My daughter is thriving socially and academically. Great variety of special programs. Staff will meet with you...this is no small thing.

The teachers are great at this school and the PE standards are one of the best in this area. Herman Intermediate is the best middle school in tue district!!!. Band is also an excellent one.

I am very pleased with the AdVENTURE program offered at Herman Intermediate. The quality of the teachers is outstanding. You culd not get more caring, well-prepared teachers, who go out of their way to make sure that my children succeed academically and socially. The students are challenged with projects that stimuate their minds. No more kids bored with school!

Very disappointed that the STEM children's backpacks aren't allowed to be inside the classrooms during break or lunch leaving them subject to anyone and everyone going through them and stealing stuff out of them.

The STEM program, part of the Oakgrove school district & taught at Herman is a sure way to dissuade any high achiever from doing better. With lofty ambitions; the system has lost sight of teaching the basic facts and skills to the kids. The students spend a lot of time doing projects that lead to nothing tangible - while lacking basic skills. Math is one skill that is gone to the wind. Ms. Egan has no control over her class and lacks the basic class management skills. This leads to absolutely nothing taught in the class.

Please DO NOT leave the responsibilities of raising and educating our children solely on the teachers. We as parents need to know our children's progress at school and should be proactive on encouraging them to do well. Educators are NOT babysitters, they work with us in partnerships to help us bring up a well adjusted and academically well rounded child. It's not the school's fault that we don't have time to teach our kids manners, to help our kids with homework after school, or to keep track of what they do after classes. Those are the responsibilities as parents.

I think this school needs more staff to control the students because their is a lot of gossip around.

Herman is a great school, with good kids, that just needs a little more work from our principal and vice principal.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted May 13, 2008

This school lets students fall through the cracks and does not do a good job if a student is failing. They do not contact a parent as they have been requested.

Herman Intermediate is a great school. Most of the teachers are very dedicated in teaching and have a positive impact for the students to do their best.

Our family loves Herman. The staff, the Principal and V. Principal as well as the secretaries are always very helpful. I appreciate that everyone at Herman works hard for the children and that they also work well with the parents. Our son is very involved in school activities and enjoys the attention he gets from his teachers and principal.

Students at Herman have ample opportunity to be engaged and successful students. The majority of staff connect well with and are concerned about the students and readily make themselves available for extra help. The extracurricular activities are fantastic there's something for everyone and nobody is excluded (as long as they make grades). I wish our local high schools would take a lesson from Herman!

Disappointing. Based on test scores and the school's reputation, you'd think otherwise, but the school is run by a small cadre of individuals who are largely insensitive to teachers' concerns. Reforms drag at a snail's pace, and students and teachers suffer. There are gifted teachers at this school, including some of the more amazing teachers I've met in my long education career, but their efforts are thwarted at almost every turn.

Herman, is an amazing school that students will ejoy. The students and teachers are friendly and 7th graders will settle in fast.

Herman is truely a great school to be at. The teachers show genuine interest in teaching and students which really pays off. As a Herman alumni, I was able to actually learn something from the passion of the teachers; they weren't usually plainly teaching out of a book but of experience and what would interest a teen.

Great school for activities, only drawback it seems is that the classes are a little crowded. But overall, we have been very pleased with the education they provided.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
