Our school is known for its exceptional academics and diversity. I'm proud to attend such a diverse high school where I can receive an incredible education. Herricks has a great staff, with caring and intelligent teachers that are more than willing to go out of their way to help out a student. One thing I would change would be the mindset of the students, as Herricks students tend to be closed-minded and cliquey. If the school provided inspirational assemblies to educate students on the benefits and significance of being open-minded to meeting new people, the environment would be warmer and more accepting.
As a Herricks junior, I can say that I am confident thinking about my transition into college because of the way Herricks prepares its students. While our courses are rigorous and course load is at times overwhelming, you'll never get the kind of dedication given by both teacher AND student as in Herricks. Being a small school, it is easy to get the kind of attention you need whether you are struggling, or just need someone to talk to.
