Overall this school's only benefit is that it isn't Columbus High School or Caledonia. Now, that being said, it is a good school for the Mississippi area and is definitely worth a look-at if you need a good education. There are a few major problems with the school's general culture and the way things are done, though that's more of a systematic problem rather than the fault of the school's absolutely amazing teaching staff.
If it is within your budget, it is 100x better to attend Heritage rather than the regular public schools in and around the Golden Triangle.

My experience at Heritage Academy has been great this last past 2 years. I love the people, resources, and the college Readiness. The challenges that have been placs among me of getting ready for college, has e at ease to know that I feel 100% ready for college.
Heritage is great at preparing thier students for college. Writing skills and term papers are inforced to push students to thier highest potential. It just improved the science lab this year and got new desks. Heritage is on its way to better and safer enviroment for its students!
