Dr. Fino Celano

    A great school district is marked by certain characteristics: supportive parents, gifted and caring teachers and administrators, motivated students and a dedicated Board of Education. The Herricks School District is indeed fortunate to embody all of these qualities. As a result, our students consistently achieve high levels of success in a rigorous curriculum. Each year, Herricks students win numerous honors in competitions, including recognition and awards at the local, state and national levels. Our students compete with the best and are granted admission to some of the finest colleges and universities in the nation.

    Whether in the classroom, science lab, concert hall or athletic field, our goal is for students to strive for excellence in all that they do, and reach their fullest potential. We are committed to developing 21st-century skills in our students, which include critical thinking, creativity, communication, and colllaboration.  By doing so, we are preparing them for college and careers in an ever-changing global community.

    Please visit our schools to see and experience all of the wonderful things that are happening, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
