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.

  • info   Summary Report on Past Board Practices
      In May 2014, the Board of School Directors for the Derry Township School District directed Hartman Underhill & Brubaker, LLC, as the District's newly appointed Solicitor, to review concerns raised by the current Board regarding the past Board's leadership and execution of its duties and obligations. The current Board requested an opinion as to whether a full-scale investigation was warranted in regard to specific concerns. In response to the current Board's request, the Solicitor reviewed board meeting minutes, invoices, and materials submitted previously in response to a Right to Know Request by The Sun and prepared a confidential attorney-client report. The Board directed the Solicitor to prepare a summary of the investigation. The summary was read in its entirety at a public meeting on August 25, 2014, which the meeting has been recorded, and was incorporated into the minutes of that meeting under Old Business.   Read Summary Report

  • Info   High School Roof Replacement
      The roof at Hershey High School is due for a replacement and work to install a new one will begin in May and extend into the summer.  The project is being managed to minimize disruption to day-to-day education and activities at the building.  However, there will be construction equipment and heavy machinery at the high school, especially during material delivery and removal.  The removal of the existing roof ballast material will create some additional noise, including during evenings and some weekends.  This is an unavoidable part of the project and the district will work with the contractors in charge of the process to keep construction-related sounds to a minimum.
