Heritage is a great school that offers great opportunities to those who want them. The staff is excellent and very caring about their students and curriculum. The counselors are also very supportive and want the students to have the best experience and be ready for college. Counselors work with parents to make sure the student is supported on both sides (Mr. Campos is my child's counselor and we are very happy with him). I believe children are successful when parents and teachers work together to enhance the educational experience of the student. My children are very happy to be attending Heritage High.

I think that this school has been a wonderful school and the teachers don't only cover 45-50 minutes. This is my favorite school so far and everybody there is so supportive to everyone. This school is really funthey give you everything that you need. I graduate in class of 2020 and i'm proud to graduate as a patriot.

Heritage High School has provided my daughter with an excellent, rigorous education. She is currently taking challenging AP classes and finds several of her teachers to be helpful. Every time I have been in contact with the school, I have had a positive experience with a general feeling that staff care for their students. I can't speak to the experiences of the other reviewer, but there is a designated pick up and drop off. What complicates traffic is that Adams Middle School is also on this road, both having only one road to access the schools. There is a bus stop for picking up and dropping off students. This school offers a much better, more diverse educational experience than most of the schools in our past district and we are very happy with it.

Very disappointing school. The classes last 90 minutes, but the teachers only covered the amount of work that a typical 45-50 min. class covers, with a lot of empty time. Teachers are sub-par level with very little encouragement for students. Homework, like schoolwork, is minimal compared to other state school districts. Focus for students and teachers seems to be socializing and fashion, rather than academia. Facilities are very modern, but with no buses and no designated drop-off/pick-up zones, even the administration acknowledges it is a nightmare for everyone to get to and from school.
