The community within Heritage High school is so amazing. We all come together as a school; for spirit day you see everyone being in a positive attitude, for sports we always are the loudest to cheer our team and support them, as well as our people like for assembly or when electing people (EX: Prom, ASB) The environment here at this school is overall super positive and fun and you absolutely love being here, we have a variety of clubs, sports and classes to take. We do so many activities as a school from Easter egg hunting to kindness day to matching up with a valentine. Overall this is a wonderful school and im proud to say I am apart of it.

I think our school is very good about making people feel welcome and like they belong. Encouraging posters are hung around the school often and even sticky notes on people's lockers sometimes. The staff does everything they can to ensure our safety when we are faced with school threats like the one we had this year, and some of the teachers are really good and care a lot about the students. The sports and food aren't as good as the other things offered, but at least the school tries!
Heritage is still a fairly new school. It has a lot of potential. I loved all the school spirit! By my Senior year however, they put into place more strict of rules about school spirit. Loved this school! Had some amazing teachers!
