We have a wide variety of clubs at HERO High, including student government, Rainbow Alliance, after-school arts programs like spoken word, drama and mural painting, and intramural sports like soccer, volleyball, and rugby.
The Arts at HERO
We know that students have to explore more than just their career interests as they grow into adulthood. We have a range of art teachers on our faculty who teach classes in drama, visual arts, dance and music.
Our PSAL program is a priority for our campus. If you are a serious athlete, consider trying out for one of our championship varsity teams in Basketball (Girls and Boys), Indoor and Outdoor Track (Girls and Boys), Softball or Baseball. Next year, we will have new PSAL teams in soccer and volleyball.
Coming Early, Staying Late for College Class
HERO High students have full days. Plan to come in early and stay late so you can participate in college classes and take advantage of our comprehensive tutoring program.
Students should plan to participate in our summer program in July. This program allows students to take additional classes and learn more career-readiness skills. The summer program is a necessity for those students who want to be nurses and doctors.
We offer hundreds of paid internships in the summer and many during the school year. Instead of looking for a summer job, HERO students have internship preparation and placement support, work in the field of healthcare while building their resumes, AND receive a competitive wage.
Lots of Trips – Fridays, all-day trips, college trips, Field day
HERO students travel on a regular basis so that they can practice their skills in real-world environments and use our city as a classroom. Students go on trips every Friday afternoon to locations connected to their regular classes and also take longer trips for outdoor education, team building, and college exploration.
