Freshman 5: Our College Prep Promise to You
Every freshman who enrolls at Herron-Riverside High School receives the College Prep Promise. During their four years at Herron-Riverside, students are guaranteed the support and guidance needed to achieve success. Colleges recognize that Herron-Riverside graduates understand how to think critically and wrestle with challenging issues. They know that a Herron-Riverside student will not simply regurgitate facts and figures, but instead, will apply their knowledge in new and creative ways to help solve problems. As a result of this promise, ten percent of last year's graduating class received full-ride scholarships to colleges and universities around the country.
