As we wrap up our three years at HMS, I wanted to reflect on the extraordinary positive impact the school has had on our family. Our student takes full responsibility for what is expected and is ready to learn every day and has matured into a young adult. Our student knows how to navigate the campus and values diversity. Our student is well prepared for high-school academically and culturally. After interviewing and shadowing at 3 different private bay area high schools, the words to me were that his teachers at HMS prepared him well! The music program is the highlight of our time. The Music Director, Sharon Calonico is passionate, caring, incredibly talented, patient and kind. She is keeping up with the changing environment with new music programs. With technology and stress engulfing our world, I believe the brain needs music as an intellectual stimulus. As humans, we need to learn how to work together. Music weaves together these life lessons in a peaceful way while teaching our kids, what you do matters.

Hercules Middle High School Math Education is excellent. Their students were excelling in the Math competition organized by MESA at Cal State University in Hayward on 04/05/14. Mrs Cruzat and all their Math teachers are doing fantastic jobs there for those students that are goal driven and want to learn.

I am a student at Hercules. I have been here for two years, and it seems to be rather good. I am a bit of a nerd, but I am also not bullied. I really hope that all the problems with this school are dealt with because the people here are nice and I think it is an overall good school. (though the education system seems to be a bit lacking.)

My son is currently in the 6th grade at Hercules Middle and it has been the worst experience of his life. Hes had to deal with bullies, teachers who don't care and the pressure of growing up to fast due to watching the High School students just across the field. There is no sense of community, not much diversity and nothing happening after school to help keep the kids out of trouble. I would never recommend this school to anyone, especially a parent whos child coming from a 5th grade, small sheltered elementary school environment.. It's unfortunate that we moved to the city of Hercules in hopes of finding a great community to raise our children, but that is not what we have experienced. I can't wait until the end of the school year to transfer my son OUT of this horrific school! My advice, DON'T DO IT!
