I love HHS, I was super prepared for college. I go to Harvard which is one of the most challenging schools in the country and HHS has gotten me ready. THANKS HHS!!!!!

Ok, I love my alma mater, but laving there to go to one of the best public universities in the US made me feel like I was ill prepared. They simply need more AP classes and need to focus more on college prep. My valedictorian's ACT score is the AVERAGE score at my university. I will go on to say that there is a feel of 'laid-backness' throughout the school that made my freshman yr at my university difficult academically. I felt as if I did nothing really productive my years there when I compare it to the real world. So, if your kids want to stay in MS/ the south for the rest of their lives, I recommend this school. If they want to work in a big city, go somewhere else.

I think that Hernando High School needs more college prep classes and that the administration should worry more about college acceptance letters than the length of a skirt.

Administration at Hernando is horrible. Great faculty if the principals would let them do their jobs. Female sports such as softball at HHS are neglected yet they have the most winning record at the school. Something that could help HHS is getting new administrators in to take care of the business!

This is a wonderful school with a great administration. Truthfully, it is the best I have ever been involved with.

Hernando High School is a great place to meet decent people, and it is growing to better support the arts, but you will see a favoritism leaning towards football, leaving other sports, mostly female very neglected. The Science department is weak, but History, English, Language, Math, and the Arts are fantastic. Just watch out, there is a lot of favoritism at this school, especially if your parents are rich or get on the teacher's good sides. I just call it how it is. Still, way better than the other schools in Desoto County.

I am a student at Hernanso High School. Hernando High School is a Great school for students grade 9 through 12. This school has a very good choral and music (band) program. This school is one of many schools that is striving to make the city of Hernando a better place for students.

I really enjoyed going to Hernando High School. Although this school is alot more strict on their students than other schools in the county, it does press hard on making their students to strive further and work harder.
