More than half of the teachers at this school barley know how to teach or could care less about the grades of the students. Heritage used to be a fun and spirited school, however each year it gets worse. The kids are stuck up and if you aren't in a 'clique' you're looked upon as a no body. Maybe if kids would learn to be kind to everyone no matter who they are we would't have a problem. However the parents and children think they're better than everyone not saying this goes to all because this deffinatley doesn't..however many are like this. If you want to send your child to a school where everyone is a part of the school and the experience is like a big family, don't choose HHS.

As a senior at Heritage I must say that the experience has been amazing. The teachers are very helpful and go out of their way for each student, the activities are really enjoyable, the campus is gorgeous and the spirit is like no other. The teachers and the staff are genuine and they really want the students to achieve the highest level of education possible. The school offers many opportunities with career building such as the academies you can take to help decide what you will do with your future. I have been to other high schools before and none of them are as beautiful and clean as well as having friendly staff and students. The students are really like a big family, we all come together and if is such a great way to enjoy the four years spent here. Forever proud to call myself a Patriot!

A great school! The principal is present and helps all students learn. The majority of my son's teachers are helpful and set high expectations for all students. I feel he is in a safe learning environment. The curriculum is rigorous. The school offers many elective classes so that he may express himself and have fun learning. Many parents who have time to spend helping at the school.

Being a student here, and not knowing any other school other than the Heritage schools, it's hard to judge. I will tell you now, if you are a parent, you may not want to send your kid off here. The students are very spoiled, and the teachers will give you packets all the time. Some teachers will actually teach, but it seems as if the students here are pressured into getting good grades, and not getting a "Husky Help wristband". The teachers do not inspire, or seem to care. We are given busy work, and we usually use computers. Your tax money is not spent wisely at this school. I do have some good teachers, however. But students here are pampered, and we are also thought of as children. I want a teacher to be serious about their job, who won't be disappointing if I get a bad grade. They'd teach differently if we fail a test, and not point fingers at us. Other than teachers trying to explain things on a college level, they should simply explain it in a way we can all understand, inspire us, make it simple, and celebrate good grades. This school is trying, but a good school is not made up of "good" students, but good teachers. These teachers don't pass as "good".

My daughter attends this school. It is fantastic.The school is well run and I am impressed with the organization and responsiveness of the administration.The teachers are caring, compassionate and actually contact me when my child is missing an assignment.The academics are challenging and the teachers help the students succeed to meet high expectations.The band director is fantastic! He is a supportive, caring and directs an excellent band program on a shoestring budget. We are retired military. My children have attended schools all over the country including highly rated private, midwest and east coast schools.The rigorous academics, organized, responsive administration and caring teachers, make Heritage High School one of the better schools my children have attended..

This is a beautiful school, but the teachers don't want the parents involved in the education of there children. I have had a teacher actual tell me that if there are any discrepancies about the student's assignments that I should not contact them directly until the student had come to them first. In this situation my child had completed and had the assignment graded and the teacher(s) fail to put in the grade(s). If I had not been on top of this to tell my student that they had assignments that had not been entered it could have resulted in him getting a final grade that was way below what it should have been.

Im compelled to correct the misstatement that Heritage High is the only school in East Contra Costa County that offers AP classes! My Son graduated from Pittsburg High and took all AP courses and excelled! He now attends Pepperdine University in So Cal and is doing great! This is not accurate and I am certain that Deer Valley also offers AP courses! Parents please do your own research!

Excellent teachers, challenging academic programs and amazing administration staff! I have two sons that goes there after moving from out of state for over a year. Very impressed with Heritage High School in every aspect. It is comparable to the excellent mid west school system.

We recently moved to Brentwood from out of state. Since there are so many new students, my daughter feels not welcomed - like she's always on the outside looking in. She also feels that the teachers are trying to do their jobs but some students are disrespectful to the teachers and disrupt the classes. I found the administration helpful, only wish the students were as nice.

Only high school in eastern Contra Costa Country with AP classes. Also a California Distinguished School. People move to southwestern Brentwood from all around the Bay Area just for Heritage.

I have worked in the school system for well over 20 years and Heritage High School is by far the most well organized and academically advanced school I have ever worked for. The district is professional and treats employees and parents with respect!


Posted October 5, 2008

Coming from an old school in the Central Valley, the fresh, new look of Heritage was appealing at first. After attending the school for 2 years and as a part of the it's first graduating class, I have come to regret the transfer.The leadership is weak; the administration concentrates too harshly on minute issues such as dress code and tardies and not strongly enough on student eduacation. Many teachers take the block scheduling for granted, I learned so much more in the thirty minutes of class time at my previous school than I did in the hour and thirty minute classes at Heritage. Yes, the faculty is on top of attendance, and notifies the parent every time a student is absent, or excessively tardy, but disregards the student's academic weaknesses until it's too late.

Great school. This school should represent what a good school should look like.I like to give the school authority thumbs up.

i'm a student at heritage. most of the teachers at the school try to teach the students to be responsible and to try your hardest, and that's good, but there are also teachers there that only care about the paycheck. also, i think it's wrong that the school is giving so much work in so little time , even at the beginning. i'm talking about presentations, essays, and projects that the students only have like a week or couple days to prepare for. this is a year-round school. school starts around the beginning of august, and ends in the first week of june. there are 2 week breaks every 2 months, which means there is exactly only 2 months left for summer break. if you don't like rushed schedules and brutally short summer vacations, then this is not the place for you

I have a son at Heritage and this school has exceeded my expectations. my son is doing well at the school and we have found the teachers and his SLC counselor engaging and responsive. The reason we moved to this school for for academics, and the fact that the school is focused on academics holds true to the promises that were made. I am excited to have my other son begin at Heritage soon.

This is my sons first year in this school. He had a teacher that would tell them 'I dont know why I'm teaching you guys if you will never succeed in life' I took this to the principal was something done to the teacher NO!! They try to cover this kind of stuff so that the school seems to be great. Teachers there are not helpful. They think that the kids are in college and that they dont need help.

I have a student that is a Junior. We were attracted to the school for it's small size and new school site. We had heard that their teaching style would be enhansed with visual large screen T.V., with power point etc. We were excited becsause he is a visual and hands on learner. All the classes except one have big screen T.V.'s with power point etc. The teacher's are not proficient in power point etc. excuses are made by most of the teachers, that they are inexperienced, and there are no classes to train the students. Good thing my student has college age high tech siblings in order for him to know how to do the tech. The school has given a false hope of careeer related classes and certifictes. Principal leadership is poor. He takes chances with coaches and does'nt protect the student.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
