Heritage High School Reviews
The school spirit is one of the best characteristics that Heritage has to offer. The last four years have been the most exciting and fun filled years of my life, and I am so glad I made the decision to go here. They have a wide range of courses to choose from, where they allow you to personalize your learning experience. You can challenge yourself while using creativity in your curriculum. The majority of the staff is caring, considerate, and want to make school go as smoothly as possible. There's so much opportunity to find friendships, sports, and clubs that fit your personality. I'll be sad to say goodbye, but ready for college as the IB courses have prepared me. Go hawks!
Heritage has shaped me into the person I am today, from great opportunities to further my education to engaged student life, it has allowed balance in my life. Especially through the IB diploma, I have learned the importance of balancing extracurriculars, sports/ activities, social connections and academics. The only thing I would change is the rigor of the courses, I had to skip a grade to be truly challenged because the regular Honors courses were not challenging me enough. I would also change the tactics to prepare students for standardized testing as I believe that is the weakest component of my college application. Implementing a college prep class that students can take during the school year would be extremely beneficial
The school is good in that there are plenty of options for students to get involved. There is a lot of school spirit and fun activities that reflect that, as well as a good sports program and very supportive student section cheering them on. Outside of sports, students also can join any of the schools many clubs. Academics are not as good as some schools, but a variety of courses of various difficulty are offered, allowing students to learn at their own pace to some degree. One of the struggles however, is with scheduling, as oftentimes students cannot take both AP and IB courses, or fit their preferred electives in with their requirements. Teachers range from extremely effective and supportive to mediocre, but it is likely that students are able to connect with at least one of their teachers. For a public school, Heritage does quite alright.
