- a
The best four years of my life. Herron is a very open and accepting place. The courses are rigorous and challenging if you choose the AP/Honors route and not only was I challenged academically but I was pushed to be the best me and graduated from Herron with a 4.4 GPA, Cum Laude, National Honors Society member, Core 40 Honors and with a love to learn.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Most definitely. Bullying is NOT tolerated on Herron, at all, whatsoever. Bullying is taken very seriously and was dealt with immediately and harshly. The victim of said bullying was left anonymous and never felt unsafe. They received the utmost support but the Herron faculty/staff as the issue at hand was dealt with.


Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
Yes. Yes. Yes, My best friends little sister is autistic and when she made it to Herron, the teachers and faculty worked with her to find what learning techniques worked best for her and she does very well at Herron, she has made lots of friends as well which was very exciting for those of us who watched her attend the same school for 8 years and only make one or two friends who she only spoke to while on school grounds.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Herron taught me that anyone can be a leader. It doesn't take a certain kind of personality or set of skills. You don't always have to be the follower, that stands in someone else's shadow. You just have to find something that you're passionate about and take a stand.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Herron creates well rounded students. I witnessed many classmates who came into Herron from middle school whom were rude, disrespectful, not motivated, had 0 self-determination, etc. and left at the top of their class, wanting to make a difference, and do good in the world.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers are absolutely amazing in every way possible, the Herron faculty hires the best. I was close with a couple of the heads of the school whom shared an office and they were telling me about how they were heading off to New Jersey in a few days for a teachers conference to scope out teachers for the upcoming school year, they'll go anywhere if it brings back the best for their students.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
They get some bad ones now and then but they don't last long usually not even a semester before getting fired.

Develops character: Agree


- a
They hold the student accountable and not the parents for everything from homework to arriving on school on time, unlike many schools.

I love this school, however Latin should be an elective as students should have the option to choose what language they would like to learn. Personally I would like to learn Spanish, which is not even offered, as it is needed for nearly every job you can get. Additionally the electives are very limited to the arts; theatre, painting, music. Having more electives would be great, other than that this school is awesome.

Herron has been wonderful! This is my son's first year (9th grade) at Herron and he already feels he is part of a great community of learners. The teachers at Herron really do care about each student. They challenge students appropriately, but guide them while encouraging independence. My son has become involved in many before and after school clubs and activities. They offer so many that it was difficult for him to choose. The times offered before, during, and after school to receive extra help and complete classwork really lightens students' loads at home. I'm sending all my children to Herron!
