    School seems to only care about the upper 10% of students. Our son has ADHD and the school made no serious attempt to educate him. The teacher were worthless and totally untrained to handle his education. They labeled him as lazy, bad or stupid and just ignored him. None of them followed his education plan as mandated by the federal government. The was the worst school experience for him and our entire family we have experienced. Unless your kid is a top student don't send him or her to this school. Transfer to Highlands Ranch if you can. By the way our son was getting D's and F's at Heritage and is now back to getting A's and B's as in the past
