In addition, I was given the opportunity to participate on the varsity football team.

Herricks High School teaches their students to have a great balance between their social and academical lives. Teachers are welcoming and understanding to their students. Along with the great staff and their students who are determined to become something in life the environment is always positive and motivational. If the administrators were to make some changes, they should have students come into the high school with classes that will help them on their road to their profession. The high school should have communities for each major. For example, if the student wants to become a doctor then the school should offer him/her classes that will help him/her understand what needs to be done for that profession. The classes the student takes like math or science classes should be according to what he or she will need in medical school. Besides this change, the Herricks School District is a great diverse environment in which students grow and learn together as a family.
The Herricks Union Free School District has shaped me into the person I am today.

Herricks has opened so many doors for me. In their numerous elective course options, students are really given the chance to explore their interests and talents at an early age. This aids students in discovering possible career paths for the future before college, something I believe is crucial.

In addition, Herricks qualifed, caring, and overall fantastic faculty makes it their priority that students not only receive the best education, but have a pleasant, unique experience in doing so.
