The sense of community and caring that exists within the halls of Heritage High School has always made me feel at home and accepted throughout my entire high school career. The staff and students at Heritage are always finding new ways to make their educational experience even greater! The only aspect I wish Heritage would add would be giving credits to students for extracurricular activities like sports, theater, and music.

Heritage High School is populated by a majority of middle to upper-middle-class students who live close to the area. The school is clean, organized and has some of the best teachers I have ever had. Many teachers care deeply for the students well being and academic success. Heritage has been working hard to revitalized their theater program since 2016. Their choir and band programs continue to improve every year as they gain more experience in competition and performances. Sports teams have a focus on community outreach and recruitment from colleges. Coaches encourage students to put academics first. Heritage was just beginning to develop their own outreach program partnered with No Place for Hate. HHS does not have a diverse student population, but it seemed to be working towards having more resources for socially, religiously, financially and ethnically minority students.
Heritage is a great school that truly cares about both the staff and students. They try their best to make it so everyone can graduate and is ready/prepared to continue on to college. It has a great school culture that makes it so everyone is included and has a wide variety of clubs, activities, and sports. All the teachers are great at teaching and explaining and want every student to be able to succeed. Overall, Heritage is a great school and makes sure that every student is included and will succeed in life.
