    "There are some very good teachers at Herricks but is it a sinking ship? It is a concern that the principal, superintendent, assistant superintendent and head of special education will all retire with a year of each other. It is a concern that there have been four math chairs in five years. The chairperson of English retired two years ago making too much major shifting going on in too short a time. The school seem to focus on the best students but not so much on the average ones. The special education setup has been very good and takes care of the autistic children pretty well. Extra help in one subject a day after school but where are the teachers on other days? ++++ Music program is one of the best! ---- They have no marching band. Sports needs some help and the girls basketball coach just quit. Overall a safe school that you can do well at if you work hard."

    "Great school. although it is a good school, I think that the kids are the ones that make it great. Smart kids make the teachers look like they are doing a better job. The school is great, but the kids are what makes it. Looking for a good school district with wonderful kids..... This is it"

    "Both my children went to this school. One was a top student and the other needed special help because of a learning disability. Both of them did extremely well. So this is a school which caters to students at all levels academically. Both high and low."

    "Excellent school, racially diverse, lots of kids going on to ivy league schools, i.e., my daughter went to Cornell after graduating, her friends went to Swarthmore, Harvard, Middlebury, U Penn, Brown. Wonderful teachers, especially in Honors and AP classes, Excellent music program, honors band and orchestras. The only negative would be, the sports program is not that great, however, Baseball made all state last year. Also, great diversity, where everyone gets along. my kids have never been bullied or pressured. Also, one of the lowest school taxes with high achievement records on Long Island."

    "First off, everyone please ignore the post a few pages back saying that the teachers are horrible and that it is a bad school. Herricks is such a good school that I can easily say that it is an academic caliber equal to and in many ways above many colleges out there, especially the A.P. classes. The school academic program is very rigorous and the teachers are outstanding. I can honestly say I went through almost all of high school without having one teacher I could complain about. I doubt there is any other school out their, other than Jericho and Garden City, where the students as a whole are on a whole other level. And yea are sports haven't been doing to well recently, except for our wrestling team, which is always at the top of their game due to the superior coaching of Coach Forziat."
