    My children transferred to Heritage from one of the local Christian schools. The class sizes are the same but I feel the attention the teachers give them is greater at HHS. The teachers really do invest in their students.

    Disappointing! I'm a transfer student. Teachers are not up to par. The school needs more passion and character.

    Heritage high school is the best school there is. The teachers there make sure there students are harworking and do the very best they can. they want there students to get into a good university.

    I am a current senior and from what I have observed Heritage is an okay school. While this might not be the best school in the area nor in the state it is still a good place to send you child. I believe this to be true because Heritage represents the real world there are diverse people from diverse backgrounds who all want something different from high school. Some want to go to college while others want to directly enter the workforce. Your child just has to know who he is and what he wants out of his high school years. If a person is successful here then he is already prepared for life after graduation.
