Academic Advising and Counseling
At Herron High School we offer unique support to our scholars, both academically and personally. Our Academic Advising and Counseling team is available any time to help scholars choose classes, plan for college, and equip them with learning tools and strategies that they will use for the rest of their lives. We know that no two scholars are the same, and each has their own needs, learning styles, and passions. From Office Hours and Saturday School sessions to intentional study time at school during seminar periods and a stellar counseling team, we are always here to support our scholars.
Faculty Office Hours
Students are encouraged to attend Office Hours when they need additional academic support and/or to remediate quizzes and tests. These office hours are open to all students. Students attending the morning Office Hours must arrive by 8:00 a.m. and must stay until 8:45 a.m. Students attending the afternoon Office Hours must arrive by 4:10 p.m. and may leave whenever they have received the help they need. All students must leave campus by 5:15 p.m.
In order to ensure the academic success of all Herron High School students, Herron High School offers Saturday School sessions twice a semester for students who are struggling academically. Saturday sessions are offered to help students make solid gains academically and to catch up in classes in which they are behind. Herron High School may require any student who is in high academic jeopardy to attend any Saturday School. Students may also be assigned a Saturday School for disciplinary reasons. Parents will receive multiple notifications if a student is required to attend Saturday School. Please check the school calendar for updated Saturday School schedules.
Seminars are supervised study periods and are an opportunity for students to study, complete Independent Practice, and/or remediate Mastery Assessments. The behavioral expectations for the seminars are the same as any other academic environment at HHS.
All Herron High School students are assigned an academic advisor. This advisor will assist students in developing a four-year academic plan and choosing appropriate courses as well as advising them on daily academic issues that arise.
