    The program of studies of the Hershey High School
    is planned to meet the needs of the youth of the Derry Township School District. A major task of the school is to accommodate learners with divergent needs, goals, capabilities and interests. To this end, an effort is made to nurture individual skills and to satisfy individual needs.
    It is also the responsibility of the school to furnish opportunities for students to participate in cultural activities that may otherwise not be available to them. Extracurricular and enrichment programs are offered to satisfy this aspect.
     

    Hershey High School was built in 1996 and expanded in 2007. The facility is 231,000 square feet, has a card access system; phone/television/internet access in all classrooms; auditorium seating for 1,300; two CAD labs; classrooms for family and consumer sciences; full gym, weight and cardio exercise rooms;
    full band and orchestra/chorus rooms; three art rooms; closed circuit television capacity; a production office and library/media center.

  • Keeping School Safe

    Derry Township School District has contracted with Vulnerability Solutions Group, LLC to perform an audit of campus security. This type of comprehensive examination of our school’s physical facilities and operational procedures is one the district contracts outside experts to conduct every few years. Over the course of the next several weeks, community members may see Vulnerability Solutions Group staff members taking photographs of buildings, making detailed notes outside our schools and even approaching parents/guardians to ask questions about school safety procedures. Please be assured this is part of the assessment process and your cooperation is appreciated.
