My son came to HHS after attending private school for a number of years. He has found the teachers to be engaged, the work to be challenging and the students to be friendly. He is extremely happy that he chose Herndon for his high school.

Compared to the friends and family living in other states, HHS is a wonderful school. In my time there, I never witnessed a fight or gang incident. I felt quite safe as I walked the hallways.

I am a current junior at Herndon and I can say that in the overall it is not a bad school. Yes, it has its problems, however those problems are outweighed by the benefits it renders.
