​Mission Statement

The Herman-Norcross Community School represents a rural community in west central Minnesota. We are a small school with a low teacher to student ratio, individualized learning plans, and a commitment to educating our students into the future.

Although small, our school offers a multitude of classes and programs which prepare our students for higher education and the work force. Our courses include in person, online through colleges, and interactive with other schools.

We offer a full sports program in partnership with Wheaton Area Schools, Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley Schools, and Morris Benson Area Schools. We also have other co-curricular programs such as Speech, Knowledge Bowl, FCCLA, FFA, and One-Act.
