Education in the Time of Coronavirus

Times are changing rapidly. By the time we refresh our browsers, there will no doubt be updates and new mandates regarding COVID-19. At Herron and Riverside High Schools, we understand that these rapid changes, and the sudden school closures, have brought on some fear and anxiety. This is one reason we acted quickly and organized e-learning for our students. We know that our students will benefit from structure and continued learning throughout this uncertain time.

Why Latin?

The four-year Latin sequence at Herron High School serves as an intensive course in logic and logical processes, thereby creating a graduate who is much stronger in critical thinking and the ability for tackling more complex questions posed in a college classroom.
