Our approach to student learning and our individualized attention is the result of our total commitment to provide an exemplary education to all. We have high expectations for our students and multiple structures in place to help students meet those expectations.

In order to ensure the academic success of all Herron High School students, Herron High School offers Saturday School sessions twice a month from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. for students who are struggling academically. Saturday sessions are offered to help students make solid gains academically and to catch up in classes in which they are behind. Herron High School may require any student who is in high academic jeopardy to attend any Saturday School. Students may also be assigned a Saturday School for disciplinary reasons.
