In my days at Herlong High School, they seemed to be endless and i never felt like i had learned anything. Yes, i had great relationships with my teachers. But, they seemed more like my friends not my educators. The academics at this school are very low level. They do not have a music program and their gym is extremely small. They have no proper eating area. The area it's in makes it seem very ghetto, yes, i understand it is in the middel of a desert, but, seriously get some water and seeds for the football field. The grass is never truely green it's all shades of yellow and brown. Over all i thik it should be shut down, rebulit and taken care of better.
