Heritage High School Reviews

407 reviews

As I entered high school during my freshman year I expected hard classes, the loneliness of having no friends to sit with at lunch, and lots of homework. Heritage High School was only some of these things. The students there were friendly enough but it was more of a "get in where you fit in" situation. As far as classes go, there were the occasional hard classes but if you did your work everything would go well. The reason I gave Heritage High only 3 stars is because this school is not without it's fair share of problems. One of my main complaints about this school would be the teachers. There are only a handful of teachers in the building that genuinely want to see you succeed and strive for greatness, while the rest only show up to the school because it is their job. Another complaint I had from this school would be the quality of the food that was served. Undercooked meat and rotten fruit were served daily along other things that tasted unpleasant.

Heritage High School is an interactive learning environment for students. By partnering with the county's Career Academy and Fine Arts program, students are guided to follow their interests and develop it into a career. The staff pushes students to perform highly in the classroom by developing Learning Targets for each unit, to ensure students are staying on track and understanding the purpose of various topics in class.
Overall the school is a decent place, with a fairly stable environment. Not many fights or disruptions occur, and the students have a good deal of freedom. From academic stand point the school is not the best but opportunities and assistance are still afforded to the students. From a extra circular standpoint the school is above average. Numerous sports teams such as basketball, football, swimming, and track go to play offs/ state each year. The fine arts department is good and has produced many talented individuals.
