    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.

  • Upcoming School Schedule: Make-up Days, Spring Recess

    REMINDER: due to the need to compensate for days of instruction lost over the winter months, school will be in session next week through Thursday, April 18. There will then be no school (and offices will be closed) Friday April 19 through Monday, April 22. The normal school schedule will then resume on Tuesday, April 23. This change to the original spring recess is necessary in order for the district to remain in compliance with Pennsylvania state regulations governing the number of school days that must be offered.
