This is a fantastic school with great teachers. The open plan nature initially made me nervous but now I have a 3rd grader and 1st grader there we have nothing but good things to say about the staff. The kids learn how to focus and not be too loud in the classroom and my kids have both done very well there so far. The teachers are wonderful and really "make" this school. If we had to move house I would choose a new house in this area to be able to have my kids go to Heritage.

This is my 2nd year for my daughter attending Heritage and we purposefully picked the area for this specific school. This is the best if not one of the best elementary schools within the Medina City School district. The teachers are very involved and thoughtful. Parent involvement is encouraged. Programs include music (with strings) and advanced art programs. There are computers galore with 2 in my daughters classroom and a 32 computer station right outside of it. It is an open school setup but with the construction of the 2 new elementaries it has reduced the student load tremendously and there is more room now.
This is a wonderful well organized school in a great neighborhood. This is an open concept school which can frighten some people however the students don't have a problem with the concept. There is a great deal of parental involvement both during school and after hours. Parents are encouraged to be a part of their child's education by volunteering in the classroom. The teachers are caring well educated and excel in their careers. The gifted program is tops. It is well run and challenging. The gifted teacher pulls out identified students but also teaches lessons to the whole (regular ed) classroom. The music and art programs are spectacular too. Students have many opportunities in this school as well as the entire Medina City District.
