I have to disagree with the previous reviews. While, the students are indeed generally extremely polite, well-rounded, successful, etc, they're also overwhelmed and sleep-deprived. As a student, I never felt like the staff cared about me; rather, I understood very well that they were often irritated and unhappy with their jobs. There are so few good teachers. Students are often forced to learn the material themselves to make up for a lack of quality teaching. Of course, the teachers are credited with Hereford's stellar national rank (those rankings, by the way, are based primarily upon test scores-- which is all Hereford cares about). So come to Hereford! You'll be addicted to coffee (always a plus), get no help from teachers or staff (extreme independence is always a good thing, right?), learn that adults don't care about you (who needs them anyways?!), learn to care only about test scores (nothing else is more important, of course), play lots of sports (that's actually fine, except with all the homework and practices you'll be going to bed at around 2am), and love your life! Wow I miss it already. Go bulls!
