My Experience at Herricks High School was one of the most unforgettable experiences in my life! At first, you may feel nervous on your first day of your freshman year, but you will get used to it and realize that it's actually a lot of fun. I made the most of my experience by taking part in many afterschool activities and participated in events held throughout the year.

Herricks is a tight-knit community with such a great education system! The teachers are incredible, hard-working individuals who devote their time to making sure kids are learning and growing.
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.
