  • School & Community

    Herricks is a four year, comprehensive high school with 1500 students accredited by the New York State Board of Regents and the Middle States Association. The student body is highly competitive, dynamic and multicultural.

    Herricks families share diverse backgrounds and personal histories. Some have been in the district for generations, while others have only recently emigrated to the United States. Sixty-Nine different languages are spoken in the homes or our students and 51% come from homes where English is not the primary language spoken.  Cultural diversity enriches our school community, educational environment and extracurricular programs.

    Whatever their stories, Herricks families are bonded by their commitment to the education of their children. In fact, many families have made impressive sacrifices to invest in the education of their children. There is great emphasis on preparation for higher education and for sustaining excellent educational programs and services.
