Herricks High School is the optimal place for a student to experience an abundance of educational and cultural diversity.
Herricks High School is a place of college readiness, where I can take honors and AP courses, from Honors Chemistry to AP Literature, as well as have the ability to join many clubs and extracurriculars. I can be a part of the Pep Band while on the Herricks Spring Track Team, which demonstrates opportunities for the interests of the students.
The teachers at Herricks provide courses and guidance to all students who want pursue a subject to those who need help studying. The guidance counselors are open to meet everyday and care about the well being of their students.
Also, I am surrounding by an accepting crowd of diversity. I have friends from all cultural, ethnic, and racial backgrounds that encompass a worldview of culture all in the confines of one school.
Herricks is the amazing combination of education and culture that I would not change for anything else.

I am so happy to be in HHS. The teachers here and offered academical supports are so good. I do appreciate teachers' help a lot. Also, I am glad that I finally found a school with various club activites and sports teams. I love the school culture too. I think students in HHS works hard and also play hard. I really like the school culture. Everything is perfect!
Herrick's High School is an amazing high-school and a great district in general. It offers several course that students actually would want to take instead of a more forced curriculum. Everyone here is motivated, driven, and I have not seen one kid who doesn't have the will to succeed. Being that I just came to this school this school year 2017-2018, as I came from Cardozo High School in Flushing (Approx. 4k Kids). I found the transition of course a little difficult. But eventually I saw such bright kids that were all passionate for things that I wanted to do, not what my parents or faculty was forcing upon me. Overall, I am glad I came here and have absolutely no regrets.
