Dear Students, Parents/Guardians, and Friends of Herron High School,
At Herron High School, we believe that all students are scholars.
Please do not think this is a cliché or some sort of marketing strategy. We believe it! We understand that students come to us from varying academic backgrounds. Some students arrive for their 9th grade year prepared to take on the full course work of a 9th grade student. Others come to us with fewer natural abilities; however, these students haven’t had the benefit of a quality elementary and/or middle school education.
To serve all of our students we have developed many wrap-around systems and services from high-ability services and course offerings to catch-up services and curriculum. In many ways, we have evidence of our success: our student retention rate hovers somewhere between 94% and 95%, our graduation rate will be about 98% this year, and we have hundreds of parent and student testimonials that affirm we are on the right track. Please be assured that we are working every day to improve our efforts.
Below you will find a Summer Academe letter from our Summer Academe director, Emanuel Harper. We are proud to partner with The Harrison Center for the Arts each year to be able to provide this rich academic and cultural experience for our students.
Janet H. McNeal, Head of School
