16 Parent Reviews for Herndon Magnet School

Daughter has attended the school since first grade. With exception to the distance from our home to the school, we have had nothing but positive experiences. Do hope the library gets an upgrade--after all, reading is the foundation for success in learning and the atmosphere needs to reflect as much--though ...  Read more

I have 3 children attending Herndon. I am sad to say that my oldest is moving on to high school next year. I will miss the security I feel at Herndon. The teachers really do care about their students. They give them the opportunity to discover and express their individual talents, which is something ...  Read more

My children attended Herndon in elementary and it was ok. When they got to middle school, I took them out because it was awful. The teachers did not care about their students at all and the principal would not listen to parent's concerns.

I think Herndon used to be a great school. It has great test score now, but the unfair discipline policies are out of hand. We have NO consistency with behavior discipline at all. As for as the teachers and staff I think they are great the administration is what needs work.

I think Herndon is a great school, but the location isnt great nor are the teachers. The schools education is great, but I think they could do better hiring teachers becuase some are just way to picky, its like going to military school.

Herndon is by far the best school in north Caddo parish. Teachers and Principal are well above average. Music, art, and Phys.Ed., are very good adjuncts to traditional subjects. The only negatives apparent to me are: they could improve their communications skills(to parents) and fund raising is really ...  Read more
