  • diverse population? How so? The student body is made up of entirely African-American students. The school is wonderful. Made up almost entirely of positive, hard-working teachers, but the leadership is a FAIL! Horrible, short-sighted, lazy, just awful human beings. It's a wonder there are any staff members still there!

  • Hefferan has proven to be a school where they truly put students first. The staff at Hefferan understand the diverse population and the socio-economic conditions that affect each and every student. They have very high expectations for each and every student. Staff members are constantly looking for and bring in resources that will help improve the conditions of the student, school, families and the community at large.
