Hermiston High School Reviews
Hermiston high school was by far the best place for me to achieve academic success. From dedicated teachers, to the support of credit retrieval for that one class that didn’t work out the first time. Their curriculums were impressive and the opportunity to ask questions and inquire on multiple subjects after school hours were crucial to my academic success However, there is room for improvement. I would like to see the schools support students struggling with mental health or academic hardships. Schedules were never aligned correctly nor were they over sought in a decent manner. I felt an extreme lack of support from my guidance counselor throughout the years that I attended Hermiston high school.
I made amazing friends who I know I love dearly, and I’ve been introduced to a new love of music through the band and chorus programs and I’ve met some amazing teachers. Some problems though include most of the funding going towards the sports programs, some of the teachers are not so amazing and only hand out easy worksheets because they don’t know what to teach of their course, and there is not a whole lot of diversity although that can’t be controlled. But another advantage I found here is that the treatment of the staff towards students with mental disabilities is excelling considering how neglecting it is in the elementary and middle schools (at least in my experience, I don’t speak for everyone). Overall, while there could be plenty of improvements, I’m still grateful for the friends I’ve made here and the wonderful memories.
At Hermiston, I have had a lot of good times. From doing activities in class like dissections and blowing things up, to all the great sports times like winning the state title for football and beating our rivals in Pendleton every year, there are more memories than I can count. However, with these good times also come the bad. There were a few teachers that I got stuck with that I absolutely HATED! I won’t give names, but these teachers managed to make my time at school feel like years slowly ticking by. As far as the overall experience goes, there isn’t much I would change besides a few little details here and there, a few things I have said, and a class or two.
