The Athletic Department at HERO High School/ Samuel Gompers Campus believes that sports are an essential branch of the educational program where student-athletes develop both basic and life skills, learn morals and values, develop character, improve self-discipline, cultivate leadership skills, display sportsmanship, and learn to be part of a team. Participation in athletic teams encourages our students to use their ability to think as individuals but also act as a member of a team.

We view students’ involvement in athletics as a privilege to represent their school, borough and family, but it is secondary to their graduation from high school. All student-athletes are required to remain in good academic standing as well as attaining a 90% attendance rate. In addition, all must adhere to school, district and citywide code of conduct regulations.

The previous spring, our Girls’ Softball team was one win away from being a finalist in the PSAL Division C Championship game. Our Boys’ Baseball team is 2 years removed from appearing in the PSAL Division B Championship game at MCU Park. Our Boys’ Basketball team competes in Division AA, the highest level of citywide competition.
