Welcome to Ferdinand Herff Elementary School
Dear Herff families and visitors,
I am honored to welcome you to Herff Elementary, a dual language campus where
we believe every child will go to college. Our students are taught by highly-qualified
teachers who strive for excellence in every child. Several grants have enhanced the
resources on our campus with literacy as a main focus. We offer a variety of
after-school clubs in order to reach and teach the whole child while developing
and enhancing non-academic skills. We welcome your visit to our campus
where our secretaries will greet you with a smile.
Dr. Traci Smith
