Looking back at all my years at Heritage, I could say those were amazing times for me. To start off the academics is truly amazing, there are multiple Advanced Placement classes and IB classes. The teachers there are very helpful and flexible with their schedules. Throughout my four years at heritage, all my teachers were willing to help ,e grow as a student. Another great thing about this school is that it is actually fun to go to! Heritage had multiple fun assemblies and many class competitions so we could have friendly competitions with other grades! Heritage also has a great athletic department with many coaches and advisors that care for the athletes there. The best thing about heritage is how diverse it is. There are so many different clubs that allow everyone to fit in and feel welcomed!

My experience at Heritage was generally pretty good. Overall the staff and students are all incredibly nice and helpful, but the building itself, yikes! It feels a lot like a prison. All the bricks everywhere, the unclean and discolored carpets, and the horrible air conditioning system all make Heritage feel dark and gloomy. I very much dislike that about it. However, Heritage has a lovely theater and basketball program. The opportunities there are endless, but its overshadowed by the bland and uncomfortable surroundings.
I am a recent transfer student into Heritage and so far I love it. Before I came here I went to two other high schools and my mental health struggled terribly in both places. The students are friendly and most of the staff are nice, engaging, and good at their jobs. There is a nice variety of classes and for me the amount of people was perfect (my first high school had 5,500+ kids and my second high school had less than 200 kids; Heritage has ~1200 kids). There are also many programs like Dual Enrollment, Saginaw Career Complex, and the Work Study (Co-op) program that kids can do to help with college apps and/or gaining work experience. The student life is also full of a lot of opportunities to prevent kids from getting bored. The only physical things I would change are the bathrooms and the cafeteria food.
