This school is against creative and talented students. Teachers ignore parents ,who want to obtain more information in order to help their children in learning problems.

Our family has had 3 graduates from Hersey. They have all succeeded at the university level. I know they miss their days at Hersey. They all have enjoyed their high school years. The teachers are in tune to the students. Whenever I needed to email a teacher they responded quickly.

Both our children attended Hersey and competed at a high level in the arts and in sports. Academically, high standards are set fron the get-go. The kids are expected to work at their capacity and they find a way to make it happen. From what I can see there is zero tolerance for drugs, violence and bullying. ...  Read more
