    I love Heritage. JROTC is a wonderful program that offers many benefits and credits. The teachers and most administrators are very down to Earth. Heritage is the only High School in the entire country that offers the Advanced Enviromental Water Academy which is an amazing feature. The Automotive program is incredible. Mr. Broud is an awesome teacher and the shop is incredibly high quality with any machine or tool you could ask for. Students can also bring in their own cars whenever they want and work on them free of charge. Heritage is over-all a great school and one that I'm happy to spend four years of my life in.

    the school's academics and programs are great. the sports medicine acadamy gets you first responder certified. The mechanics acadamy gets you certified when you graduate. We also have the environmental acadamy. the cambridge acadamy which is an excellent advance program because every college in the world accepts those credits and looks at it highly. The only downfall is that this school is too diverse. Rednecks are a problem at this school. they offend alot of people and make racist comments to people. it surprises me how they are allowed to wear their their flag and offensive shirts. For example one shirt said this is america speak english. the handbook clearly states that the american flag is the only flag that can be displayed to avoid conflict. Heritage administrators get your act together and see that rednecks are offending other students
