Heritage has so many clubs to offer! Latin Club, French Club, Heritage Youth in Action- a community service based club, Be the Change- a club promoting awareness on multiple different issues, Comedy Club, Astronomy Club, Outdoors Club, Art Club, Latino Awareness Organization, Robotics Club- the Hawkbots, Multi-Culture Club, Chess Club, Ping Pong Club, Forensics, Heritage Christian Outreach, Gay-Straight Alliance, Debate Team, DECA, Michigan Youth in Government and National Honors Society. No matter what your preference is, there is at least one club that you could find yourself at home in with highly involved administrators and a wide variety of other students. Joining clubs is easy, all you have to do is walk in, however, balancing multiple clubs is difficult because we have so many that their meeting times often overlap. The clubs and extracurriculars at Heritage offer opportunities to socialize and get involved and are the best part of the high school experience.

I had a very positive experience at Heritage High School. I was actively involved in sports, leadership, and participated in school activities. Heritage provides an open, friendly atmosphere and always has some sort of charity, event, or fundraiser going on. They focus on student involvement and participation. The staff and teachers are all friendly and promote good environments to learn in. Heritage is an International Baccalaureate school and is highly focused on giving their students the best possible education. One thing I would change about Heritage is for them to have more college readiness classes, or more electives in general. Heritage does prepare you for college, but I think more classes relating to real life encounters would be very beneficial to the students, as they are about to enter the "real world". Overall, I had a great experience at Heritage High School and if I end up living in Saginaw in my adult years, I would send my children to this school without a doubt.
Heritage has a very large, spread out campus with an almost endless list of options for classes to enroll in. The sports and extracurricular activities are lead very well, by many great coaches, and are extremely organized. I enjoy how challenging the academics can be at time, but other times it feels like I have ten pounds of books in my bag. If I could change one thing, it would be the amount of homework the AP and IB classes get, because we have almost no time for extracurriculars, a social life, spending quality time with family, and getting the right amount of sleep every night.
