I like that school staff makes you feel welcome and are willing to help every child in need. I like that they put alot of effort into students learning and the no child left behind Act.

I am a studdent there and I don't think any of these reviews are any good, my mom is involved in everything I do. We are completely safe, we also have many extracurricular activities, many fun things like, mud club, intermurals, Student council, I actually am in student council, tech club, And we love new students, If I were you, I would have a students poit of veiw, and just because one child gets picked on doesn't mean we all will! Besides we are working on bullying with our advisors. The teachers are splendid. I can't wait to get back to school tomorrow, I just had April Vacation!

I have had two children through this school, one girl and one boy. Both have had great experiences, with opportunities to grow and learn. The extra-cirricular activities are very good and the school tries to get as many students involved as possible with the budget given to them.

Hermon middle school... Lets see ... I feel bad for my child because she goes there... The only reason why is beacuse we live in the area. We have had meny promblems with this school, teachers, princible. And many numors things. My daughter would come home and cry to me saying how awful the school is. My daughter would get teased and picked on to the point were she would break down in the middle of the hallway. If you are looking at this you might want to think twice before entering your child in this school. Thank you

I have found at both the Elementary and Middle school to have had both experienced and new teachers. Some have been better then others. I have had to stuggle to get services for my child and have not had the best communcation from the Administration. It has been difficult transition having the fifth grade in the Middle School with little accomadations made for them. They are given no outside break only then 20 minute lunch time. This does not refresh and refocus the children. They utilize lunch time to complete late work so essentially it means no mental break. The Administration has not communicated well. They have institute practices with my child without informing me and I found out at a much later time more by accident. The new Middle School building seems well laid out in design. With the growing community space may again be an issue in the future.

Hermon High School is a wonderful school for students. The Guidance Department is fantastic and really assists students to obtain their career goals. The Principal is fantastic, very supportive of students and staff. The town on a whole wants their children educated, but does not want to put the money into the education system. There is never any money for anything the teachers or staff really need, but the principal and staff make the most of what they have. Their technology department is part of the Town and not the school system, so the school system suffers because of this. Education wise my children learned alot and were more then prepared for the universities that they attended.
