Our short time at Hermantown was a miserable experience. There are nice kids and staff, but they are outnumbered by the rude and uncaring kids and staff. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

My son has special needs and the staff at Hermantown Middle School has been 2nd to none. He has torettes and if it were not for the un-tireing efforts of the staff we would not be anywhere near where we are now with his schooling. He finished 6th grade with a 2.98 grade point ave. That is awesome to us.
