I love the staff at Herculaneum, very friendly and always ready to help you when you need it! I think that their sports teams are very close, and they create very good friendships between students and athletes. Love the school spirit that everyone has when it comes to football games or pep assemblies. I think that being in a smaller school like Herculaneum makes it easier to ask for help from teachers and have one on one tutoring if needed.

My experience as a student in Herculaneum High School has been full of encouragement and unity. From a transfer student across cities, I've been put into private, public, catholic, and baptist schools. However, only some of the schools were my favorites. In Herculaneum High School, the students are pretty friendly and openly becomes friends with another. It has showed me that high schools can be the same as elementary and middle schools. (They do not have to be young adults acting mature and of higher standards). I love this school, than most that I have been to. Everyone fits in, and the teachers are willing to help a student understand patiently. If I could make a change in this school, I would like to see soccer as part of the available sports for the school.
I transferred to Herculaneum High School in my junior year. It was a wonderful experience to move from Saint Louis down to Jefferson County. I immersed myself in the band program and was given opportunities such as marching band, jazz band, and concert band. I received several awards for my musicianship and it is because of my fabulous director. He made music very fun and interesting. Even when I did not look forward to going to high school, I looked forward to marching/concert band in the morning and jazz band in the afternoon after lunch.
