    ive been staying with my mom that lives in Davidson county but im gonna stay with my aunt who lives in the white house area im homeschooled righ now but i want to go back to school what do i need to register

    Poor communication with parents (unless it's a fundraiser of course) limited resources children a not receiving the preparations they will need for college limited courses. And if your child has special needs or IEP well be prepared because they will just keep passing the kids on without gaining the proper skills they need to succeed in the next grade. Robertson co. Needs to quit blowing money on unnecessary paving of roads that were fine to begin with and sink some of our tax dollars into the kids & schools.

    I would like to say that I am very happy with White House Heritage my son goes there and the teacher's are very helpful to him I would like to Thank all of the teachers for such a good job.

    I'm a student at heritage. My classmates aren't being exposed to the programs that the larger schools have to offer. I guarantee you that if you asked a student what the International Baccalaureate program was...they wouldn't have a clue as to what it is. The school only offers one foreign language and that would be Spanish. Robertson County just has awful schools.

    Great school. Excellent leadership. Wonderful parent envolvement. The very best coaches!

    I have mostly good things to say about Heritage. I guess I am fortunate to be able to say that the worst thing is the lunch at the school. It is ridiculous what they feed these kids. It has been the same for years. Give me a break. The other thing is they can't keep leadership and guidance counselors. The new principal is not personable. The communication level has improved somewhat but still is lacking. The only time you are really involved in your child's school is if your child plays sports or if there is a problem. I hope they will give parents more information.

    I was very nervous about sending my kid to middle school but I love Heritage. All the kids come from RFWE and there is no other feeder school which is great. The teachers know each kid by name and always speak when you see them in the community! Mrs. Holmes the new principal is terrific! She does an excellent job with discipline and running the entire school!! We are looking forward to the opening of the new high-school and couldn't be any more pleased with Heritage Middle!!

    White House Heritage is an overall great school with a few minor flaws. They seem unable to keep a guidance counselor for more than a year the lunches are disappointing and some classes have more students in them than you would think even possible. Many students in Heritage however are very happy with their teachers and administration with only a few expressing any displeasure. White House Heritage has many clubs available for their students to enjoy such as Forensics and Creative Writing. Also the administration has been kind enough to allow the teachers to try a few new classes such as Bible as Literature or Sci-Fi Lit. School spirit abounds in both the faculty and students and White House Heritage is a place where everyone knows everyone. Except for a select few the students are respectful and caring to one another. I highly recommend White House Heritage.

    I go there now and it's the best school iv'e ever been to. Im going into 9th grade and im not the least bit scared of high school. Thats how safe and close i feel with the rest of the peers

    I go to Heritage now and I really do not like it. The students have no manners except for very few. The teaches are easily distracted and put off subject and then they bark at us for a quiz the next day when they didn't even teach. There is some drug use among younger groups as well as some high school groups. I personally don't fell all that safe at Heritage.

    Heritage Highschool is a great school. They have lots of school spirit and also have very challenging classes for students to chose from.

    I go there and i love it. It's the greatest school ever and I don't know why it is so different from other schools but whatever they did the changed it for the better.But we are overcrowded and there are too many students in each class.

  • (7 years ago)

    too many students and not enough teachers. while i attended i found it very hard to get the help that i needed in most subjects because of the fact that there were too many students.

    My son seems to like the smaller class size.

    I have attended White House Heritage since it opened. I am currently a senior and I have loved every minute of school. This school has developed to be very wonderful place to be with many advances in programs. Over the years our sports have became better and achieve their highest goals. Our test scores are among the highest in the state. The most important thing you should know about this school is the opportunity to have a one-on-one relationship with the teacher. Everybody knows who you are and everybody helps you to become who you can be. This is an amazing school. Its an honor and a privilege to go here.

    I was a new student for the 06-07 school year. I am in the 8th grade there. It was hard to move from where I new everyone and it was also hard to leave friends that I was comfortable with. I knew that I would have life-long friends if I came to this school with a positive attitude towards the curriculum and to the my peers. White House Heritage has made me feel more welcome than I have any of my past 4 schools. I am very pleased that I am going to graduate from this school.

    I love this school.I attend the 8th grade there and i love it. We are on the smaller side but it leaves less people for the teachers and we have smaller classes. Our sports are getting better to. THis year middle school volley ball won regular season and our ditrict tounaments. Football had a winning season in middle school and high school is in the play-offs. Basket ball season is yet to begin but im sure itll be a good one. This school is the best and when i get older if the school is the same as it is now my kids will deffinatly be going there.

    I love the school. I attend there. There academics are wonderfully supervised and fun as well. The teachers are very nice. Each student is treated with care from students and the staff. The school is small but there aren't that many people. Students make great grades here because the friendly staff makes a student feel comfortable and welcome. Going to that school is so much fun and I am glad I attend there. Students are also disiplined though. That keeps most students in line though too. This school is a very well maintained and is awesome for most kids. When I get older if Heritage is still around my child will most defiantly attend there.

    I am a 10th grade student at Heritage and I think this school is one of the best within middle Tennessee. WHH is now just ending its third year and we are growing. I love the fact that our school is small because it allows for more one on one learning. We have a very friendly principal and awesome teachers. I also like that we are both a middle and high school. It definitely makes the transition easier into high school. I recommend this school to parents looking for a great Robertson County school.
