The first day I stepped foot into this school, I felt that my children were going to do well. The teachers in this school are great. The principal and the assistant principal very good as well. The discipline could be a little tougher but not too soft on the kids. I was very happy with my children in this school and only wish the high school teachers cared as much about the students as the middle school does.

My child was a 6th grade student this year at the Herricks Middle School. I must rate the teacher with a very poor rating. The students missed out on quite a bit of math because the teacher never took the time to teach it. As for the Science, Foreign Language, and other teachers, I must say they were excellent. The Guidance Department was fantastic. Always on top of everything with the students. The level of parent involvement was satisfactory. Availability of extracurricular activites was also satisfactory.

Herricks is not perfect, but really good. The teachers are great and (usually) have some degree in teaching or what they teach. The music program is great. There are classes for students with different levels of knowledge on that subject. There are three main trips, one in each grade, giving the students something to look forward to before and talk about after.

Though the budget is small and the lunch period is short, I think that the school gets very high achievements out of its students. I am quite satisfied with this school, even though I know it is not the best.

Schools are supposed to give homework. Teachers are supposed to work only 180 Days. The school year is a time to work and learn. If people are concerned about bullies teach there kids to respect themselves. How can people ask schools to do more and demand cutbacks in the same breath? You want better teachers? Well they go where the money is. This district needs work like any other in Long Island. Herricks is a great district to live and learn.

I have two children in the district and I went to the district. If you are a AP child or a Special Education Child it's great. But for the middle road kid, they get lost. The teachers/administration are way overpaid. These teachers work only 180 days. This district along with other nassau county district's need to cut back.

This school has high academic performance, but lacks students necesities. There is a very short lunch time. There is only 22 (twenty-two) minutes of lunch. No recess. There is alot of bullies. Alot of stress. Homework can range from one hour to 4 hours. The work is exceeding capacity. I believe that this school needs major improvement. -aasociety
