    Dear Herrera Community,

    I am honored to lead the Herrera community for the 23-24 school year. This year will be my fifth year as the proud principal of the Herrera Panthers. Silvestre Herrera School for the Arts and Dual Language is a very special school in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona. 

    We are proud to offer our community a Fine Arts Education and a Spanish Dual language Education all under one roof. 

    At Herrera, our students grow artistically and linguistically to become the best version of themselves. To achieve these goals, we set high expectations for all students to ensure that they reach their potential. Our students are educated by excellent teachers who go above and beyond to help students master academic standards and develop their talents in our state of the arts facilities. 

    We invite our community to join us in the multiple performances we host throughout the year to see our students shine in our beautiful Performing Arts Center.

    We are a hidden gem in central Phoenix that offers more than just a typical education for students in Prek-8th grade. Come see what Herrera has to offer by scheduling a tour.

    As the chief school administrator, my door will always be open to anyone in the community who is interested in making Herrera a great place for all students, staff and community. I look forward to working with you and I would like to welcome you to our Herrera FAMILIA!
