Hereford High School is an overall great school! This school has amazing teachers and a great sports program. The musicals put on in the school are very successful and turn out great. The only big problem with this school is that the school spends most of it's money on sports, this leaves programs like the Performing Arts and Music to be left behind to fend for themselves.

I have been at Hereford High School four years. Some teachers are passionate about topics and students while others are disinterested, bias, or aggressive. Busy work is common and many times there is more of a focus on completion than quality or actual learning. The sports department is excellent. There is very little diversity. There are clubs but they are sometimes hard to join or start your own. The robotics club is excellent and well supported.
Hereford high is a good school regarding academics, it really is. If you take advantage of AP classes & advocate for yourself, you will get a good, well-rounded education. If you don't, though, you'll be left behind. Approach teachers; complain to guidance counselors about how you still haven't been registered for classes. Making the best of Hereford is knowing how to stand up for yourself.
