About Our School
Hernando High School is
located at 805 Dilworth Lane in Hernando, MS. Our students are given
the tools necessary to succeed in college, the professional world,
military and in life.
To give students an edge,
Hernando offers college credits such as English Composition, College
Algebra, Speech, General Biology, Psychology,
Chemistry, and History. In addition to the Dual Credit Courses,
Advanced Placement courses such as Calculus, English, Biology and U.S.
History are also offered. Hernando has PSAT and ACT prep classes. Last
year alone, Hernando was awarded over 2.5 million dollars in
scholarships. Almost 10% of the Senior class has scored a 30 or above
on the ACT.
In addition to these academic
accolades, HHS also offers an excellent athletic program. Tiger sports
include archery, soccer, tennis, softball, cross country, baseball,
basketball, track, football, swim, cheer, dance, golf, and volleyball. To
further student appeal HHS offers an award winning fine arts package,
which includes Theatre, Visual Arts, Choir, Marching Band, and Concert Band.
Students hold several District and State Titles in Soccer, Basketball,
Swim, Track, Cross Country, and Band. Our award winning theatre and
art departments are recognized as some of the best in the Midsouth.
Students have the choice to join a variety of clubs. Such
extracurricular involvement goes a long way when it comes to students applying for college. Our Interact Club has been featured on National TV for their Autism Awareness Campaign, our chess team won the
district tournament, and our Knowledge Bowl Team was in the final four
competition on WREG Channel 3 in Memphis.
The culture at Hernando High School is
one of involvement. Our students feel safe, comfortable and cared
about, which all work together to make Hernando High School a success.
