I enjoyed many elective classes that are offered. My love of science flourished here with many options to spread the interest of students. The teachers are kind and grade fairly, I have had no problems with any of them and help whenever needed. They are willing to become involved in their students' lives to advance them academically. The lunch has many options to choose and always has to offer something to even the pickiest eaters like myself. The students and their willing to learn is a disappointment to me. Little effort from a majority of students is produced even with the simplest tasks. With a bit of effort, this school can become the greatest. Go Bulldogs!

As a high school student, I can say the teachers are great and the opportunities are there. However, we tend to spend a lot of attention on things like a new weight room when we have sink in bathrooms that haven’t worked for years. I have made so many memories and built many connections but it would be great if our school district administration put some effort into being better than average.
I have been in the Hermiston School District since I was in Kindergarten. Overall, it's a great school district with a lot of heart, that really focuses on students. The teachers, for the most part, are wonderful, and I can't wait to graduate.

I have a few concerns with some of the administration members, as they are sometimes very one student minded.
