Herscher High School Reviews
Herscher High School is a wonderful school with excellent safety precautions. Doors are locked at the start of every changing bell and the police department often visits to stay engaged with students learning and activities. Teachers and staff care about the students inside and outside of class. They are very well educated and all set very high standards. One thing I would change about the school is modernizing it to keep students engaged. Brighter colors and different furniture would help a lot with this area!
In 2016, I graduated from Herscher High School. Fortunate enough, I was deemed valedictorian. My experience at this particular high school was extraordinary. Herscher did an exceptional job at preparing me for college. With such a small community and a high school of roughly 600 kids, I knew everyone. I could walk down the hallways and recognize each teacher by name. Along with that, every student at his/her locker was a familiar face. Going to Butler University was a lot like Herscher in a sense. Both schools have small communities. With a roughly 5000 undergraduate student capacity at Butler, it was similar to my high school. Herscher's excellent staff and community provided me with the preparation of what Butler University is like. For that, I thank Herscher for its accepting and caring community, and personally, I am overly satisfied with my experience there.
I mostly enjoyed the people at the school. For the most part, I got along with a lot of various people and had no real issues with anyone there. However, I really would like to see growth and change in how the issue of bullying, including cyber bullying, is addressed. It felt as though the issue was ignored there, and I know that there were many that struggled with this particular issue.
