Heritage High School has a very intense education program. Students are held to a high standard and they have many opportunities to excel in their school careers. Heritage has several Honors and AP classes that any grade level can take. These high level classes allow students to challenge themselves as well as achieve highly in the classroom. Through the classes as well as extracurricular activities, students are exposed to different types of people and ideas. These activities and people give students the opportunity to expand their thoughts and they are able to leave the school with a broader sense of community. Through the LINK program alone, everyone in the school comes together to celebrate their pride of being an Eagle. This is what made going to Heritage such a great memory.
Heritage High School has a wonderful education system, and most of the teachers are superb. Yet I feel very divided there and not quite as united as they like to think. Many teachers show favoritism toward the students more involved in certain extra circulars and students are awful to one another. The latest thin with students is terrorizing one another through safe2tell by reporting false information about students or when they fight sending in pictures of them drinking or smoking to get them in trouble. Most of our student council members drink and smoke and are quite rude yet in front of teachers act very pure and open. The education is great but the student body and bullying is awful.
I'm in a TON of extracurriculars as well as challenging classes and it's definitely manageable if you can stay organized. There's obviously only five days a week that extracurriculars will meet, so if you're interested in a lot of things, you'll have to be pretty selective about what you pick, especially if you're an athlete, but lots of clubs are really flexible about letting you try different things before committing. Just know that if you try out for a sport and you make the team, you're in and that's that - you can't really experiment with the sports. You'll find at least one assistant principal or sometimes the principal at every athletic event, but the same can't be said for every club event. Athletics definitely receive more funding than clubs (we've had a speech and debate team for years but they only just now got on the budget), but we do have lots of fundraising opportunities and lots of places in the community that are willing to help with fundraising (Garlic Knot, the Shack). The extracurriculars that demand the most commitment are probably yearbook and newspaper because we have deadlines to work with, but other clubs do a lot of activities as well: GSA gives presentations to faculty about how to make their classrooms more accepting, Community Relations organizes and runs Make a Difference Week, LINK organizes and runs activities specifically for freshmen, etc.
