High School Assessments (HSA)

In 2011-2012 Maryland used the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) to test students in English 2, Algebra, and Biology upon completion of each course. The HSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. Beginning with the class of 2009, students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

    As a teacher this is my first year at Heritage but I was a teacher at Lake Clifton two years prior to Heritage moving in. Unfortunatly I have to agree with the previous parent. There is much left to be desired and a lot of improvements that need to happen at our school. We have a wonderful careing and educated staff but I believe that that is one of the only positives. Most of the students disrespect authority and their fellow students. The attendace average is ridiculous the test scores are atrocious and the students fail most of their classes which are already 'watered down' compared to other schools. There are way too many fights also. I've had two in my classroom already. In my two years at Lake Clifton this never happened. I don't know what to do to make it better we've tried almost anything!

    This school is a product of Lake Clifton being split up into smaller learning communities. The school was formerly called Harford Institute but is now called Heritage High School. My daughter is in the 11th grade at Heritage. The school is extremely unorganized and chaotic. They barely have textbooks and materials. What was the point of opening all of these new schools if they weren't gonna be provided with the proper learning tools? I'll just call this school 'Little Lake Clifton' from now on.
