Last Spring my daughter, at the time a high school Sophomore, came to us and asked to transfer from her private Catholic high school to the local public high school, Herndon High School in Fairfax County.
We struggled with this decisions, NOT because of Herndon High School, but because we liked the school that she would be leaving. After much deliberation we gave our blessing for the transfer.
It has been a wonderful experience for her both socially and academically. She has found the teachers to be tough but fair, involved guidance counselors and a positive and nurturing environment. She is a happier kid and that makes for a happier family--and better grades!
We were so pleased with the recent announcement that Herndon High School had earned the Governor's Award for Educational Excellence. I want to extend my congratulations to the administration of Herndon High School and to all of the teachers, staff and parents who make this school such a wonderful place for our teenagers to get an education.
This award is very well-deserved!
