Review Heritage High School
My experience at Heritage High School has definitely shaped me into not only the student I am today, but the person. The community the school has built provided me with multiple opportunities for growth, with people who listen, and with teachers who go above and beyond for the students that they love. I come from a single parent household and my parent is not well educated; I could not get the academic help I needed at home. However, the school has provided all the resources I need and now I'm thriving!
The social life for students during and after school in events are amazing, helpful, and very encouraging to create relationships with teachers outside the classrooms! We become friends with our teachers and eat lunch with them or go to their weddings! My friends were theater kids, athletes, and bookworms! Diversity was encouraged in school! There were no stereotypical groups at my High School! We were all friends! Everyone knew everyones name! It was the best four years of my life.
