Silvestre S. Herrera School radiates with a welcome feeling that respects the balance of creativity and academic performance. Students express and present their creative talents throughout the year.

At Herrera, ALL students have the opportunity to express themselves daily through participation in one of several arts focused core content areas: Dance, Drama, Choral Instrumentation, Instrumental Music, Visual Arts and Physical Education. The arts allow students to express themselves and their understanding of the world in creative ways. The arts help students build connections that deepen learning in all other content areas.

At Herrera, we also offer the opportunity to learn and strengthen second language abilities in two languages, English and Spanish. Herrera provides students in grades K-7th grade with the opportunity to participate in our 50/50 Dual Language program.
