School System - From the Superintendent of Herington Schools 09/29/11 "I've observed much growth in Herington the last four years. The construction of the railroad overpass successfully connected the East and West side of town. The railway had always split the town since the beginning. The updated airport runway, new roads in town, a new housing development, a new community building, a new athletic facility and a new Elementary School that opened in the fall of 2011, are significant examples of future focus. Even the recent exceptional performance of football, basketball, and track demonstrate great promise for Herington's future."
