Teachers bully students, students bully students. Everyone bullies everyone. If you are not popular, White, Christian or have money, you are no one and you are a target for bullying. As an LGBT student, your bullying is doubled. I was class of 2016, and I’ve heard since then it’s gotten worse. I’m just glad I am out of that awful school. I’ve experienced teachers bullying me, along with students and counselor staff. Trust me, if you can go anywhere else, please do... this school crushed my confidence and self love. I still have body image issues because of the bullying. In all honesty, any positive review you see is from a popular kid/parent who gets what they want and control the school. And trust me, the parents DO control everything.

I would rate our experience at this school 3/5. We transferred here from the top elementary magnet school in the parish for middle school. The level of work and expectations were lower than we had experienced in elementary school. The school as a whole is outdated from the infrastructure to the teaching tools. completely opposite of what we had experienced throughout our previous school years. There was also a constant underlying bias against certain students .

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 I believe the librarian is invaluable.

Herndon magnet is by far the best school! no one is left out , its a huge family! all the teachers care and are there to help you! I miss Herndon so much, Herndon isn't just a school its a home and everyone there is my family! I learned so much and now highschool is a breeze. Herndon prepared me for high school and life. in my heart ill always be a hawk! I have nothing bad to say about Herndon, you feel safe, academics is amazing, parents are always involved, and everyone gets along!
