Hermantown Senior High School Reviews

As a current senior at Hermantown High School, I can safely say that thus far I have had a well-rounded, enjoyable experience. Not only have I been able to grow my education, but I have gained confidence, friendships, etc. Since my freshman year, my teachers have made it clear that they want me and my fellow classmates to succeed. The work can be challenging at times, but teachers are always open to questions or after class visits. In addition, there's ample opportunity for students to find a club, organization, or sport they are interested in. In regards to a change I'd like to see at Hermantown, I have witnessed the fight against trying to prevent and stop students from vaping. While these problems take time to solve, I would like to see them improve. Efforts to stop students from vaping have been made, but personally I haven't noticed a substantial difference. Overall the atmosphere at Hermantown Senior High School is positive and I feel that many students share that perspective.

Hermantown is a great school with great teachers and a great hockey team. Overall good experience, and was able to get into college without any issues. They have lots of resources that assist with college readiness, and I just got accepted into a masters program in nursing.
When I attended Hermantown Senior High, my experience was a very positive one. The overall atmosphere was a relatively positive one, and the teachers and staff were all helpful. The classes were interesting, and it was made easier because of the many different options of classes we had. If I were to change anything about Hermantown Senior High, it would have to be to somehow create stricter bullying policies. I, personally didn't experience much bullying during my time in high school, but I do know that many did. Hermantown does have safe places to go and the counselors are incredibly helpful. I also know that there is no way to completely eradicate bullying, but maybe if students who are victims of harassment felt there were safe places to go or knew about them, it could help.
