  • Overall, I think a student's experience is what they make it. I honestly cannot say that Hercules High is a great school - or that I am proud to be a Titan, but I worked with what I had. I am one of those higher testing students, but that is because I have had enough initiative to take advantage of the few resources available. A FEW of my teachers seemed to care if I passed or failed, and I worked most closely with those teachers. Yes drugs and bullies certainly have their place, but it is possible to escape them and their influence. I wouldn't say any one thing dominates at Hercules High. Administrators will say that education does, most teachers will be unavailable or unable to answer, and the student's response depends entirely on the student and what they put into the school.

  • whoever wrote this review was obliously unlucky. This school is a really great school. If you look at the test scores, you will see that they have some of the highest in the county. Fights are a rarity, drugs, like anywhere else, are a problem, but dont run the school, and parties, ha. There are occasional dances celebrating occasions but they are rare as well.
