Review Herricks Union Free School District
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.
I went to Herricks from kindergarten through Senior year. While on one hand it was really great, it still had its bad teachers and faculty with their own agendas. I'm sure it was very similar to every other public high school, except much better. Herricks is extremely competitive, and there is alot of pressure to do welll. Just walking through the halls, you could feel that people are waiting for you to slip up step on you. Grades are extremly important in herricks culture, and having even below a 3.5 or 1800 sat score can be reason to be called out in class.
