    We have loved our first year at Herget! Our principal Mrs Naleway is wonderul and we have really enjoyed all the teachers. The sixth graders had a very nice introduction to middle school having been visited by Mrs Naleway in the spring in their fifth grade classrooms then having a field trip to Herget and being shown around by student council members. Gifted instruction has been very accessible. Band program is challenging but rewarding. My child doesn't participate in sports but her friends do and they all enjoy it. We couldn't have picked a better middle school.
