My time at Herculaneum High School was some of the best times, and also just okay times. Overall, I got myself involved to have a great time in high school! Clubs and sports are a big deal to the majority of the students and staff. The teachers and staff are very caring and go out of their way to help you. Our school offers a program to get early college credits that is free, which has been awesome for me! Although, our school does seem to be tight with where they spend money. Some classrooms have chairs falling apart and the lunch food isn't all that great. It's small things like these that make the overall rating of the school go down.

My experience as a student at Herculaneum High School was very good. High school is what you make of it and I think I did very well. I was a high achieving student-athlete and a member of numerous clubs. The clubs I was involved with were: National Honor Society, varsity band, varsity cheerleading, varsity letterman's club, black cat buddy mentorship program, and the A+ scholarship program. I was studious and took advantage of the dual credit opportunities. The teachers and staff overall are kind and caring people who will help when needed. Some of the teachers would answer emails within minutes which shows that they are dedicated to the overall education of their students. The opportunities were limited due to local funding issues but the school and district. The teachers deserved more funding opportunities as well as higher pay for all of their hard work and sacrifice.
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.
