I graduated from Hereford in 2019. Overall, the education was great and offered many opportunities to students. The main problem was there was a lot of suppressed racism and bullying going on not only by the student body, but also by faculty members. Harassment claims were never taken seriously and often were pushed to the side. I would love to see some action taken to these issues. I truly believe that if steps were taken to address this, Hereford could be an amazing school all around!

Its a great school! It is a safe environment and the staff is very nice. They have lots of things to help students get ready for college like the avid program, guidance counselors, and teachers. Overall everything is organized in the school. There is always a police officer at the school just incase an incident does happen which makes the students feel safe and the students parents at ease. There is an issue with diversity but overall most of the kids are accepting and there is little to no bullying at the school. If there ever is any, the staff puts an end to it right away. Growing up in Hereford was a pleasure and taught me alot. I would recommend that parents send their child to this school because over all it is a safe and successful environment.
The teachers at Hereford High School are invested in the students and care about our success. Most of the students are very hard-working and smart. The athletic teams are very competitive and routinely win state championships. Overall, it's a great school!
