Open Quote My Daughter is in her second year and is very happy with the teachers, the program offerings and the school system which encourages advanced placement classes. The main intent of the Herron system is to prepare the students for college not just acedemically but also socially how to prepare for interviews, table etiquette, etc. The diversity of the student body (by design) is to reflect similar diversities one would find in college and the real world which is also invaluable. Our younger daughter is also looking forward to attending Herron next year. As a former high school teacher and parent I could not be happier with my children attending Herron. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
