Very poor, very few teachers care. some teachers just need to retire. Administration needs to be revamped!!!!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 4, 2008

The school is good... there are activitys for anyone from FFA to JROTC and for a parent so say it is not a good school it means their children didnt make the most of it.

I went to school here over all it was good, but like everything it has its pluses and minuses. This school is a great place if you like sports and band they have a great program for that.

I won't agree with the previous post by a 'parent' on June 28, 2007. Did she just have a bad experience? I feel that as a teacher at the high school, that we have a good school system. Every school has 'issues'. But why not try to work at resolving the issues rather than making an across-the-board statement not to enroll your children in this school district?

My advise is don't move to hereford, if you are relocating - drive from canyon or bushland so your kids can go to school there. Very bad invironment and getting worse.
