When I research about Heritage, i discovered it was rated to be one of the top school in Phelan Ca. so i decided to make the moved and sell our old house to give the oppurtunity to my children to be in a better environment where parents and teachers are in union for the best education and well being of our children. So far my daughter is excelling in her grade level. She feels safe and enjoys being in her school. She feels happy and as a parent it is very rewarding to know your kids are safe, happy and excelling to their fullest capacity. hopefully soon i can be able to transfer my other daughter , so they can be together and I do not have to drive another mile to the other school.

Im a student at Heritage school, and I would like to say that this school is very cool school. I would only like to say that the students that go to Heritage don't get much of a choice in their school. Our school times have gone up by 15 minutes. The students were told that the time was going to lunch, but now that the choice was made, it has been added to periods. I think we should have a choice in our school and what we do in it.

This school is a throw-back to the schools of yesteryear... parents are required to be involved with the school activities and their students performance (imagine that!!). The focus is on education!! There is homework EVERY night and the testing is not only on the current subjects but on past subjects covered throughout the year for compete retention of the information. They don t have a uniform, but they do have a strict dress code which helps the kids remain focused on school instead of all the peripheral distractions at most schools. The focus is on education, not passing a test. My daughter just entered High School and because of the level of teaching at Heritage she went straight into Honors everything and has received straight A's her first semester. I'm thankful my two children have been allowed to attend this school... it has set them up to succeed in life.

I was a student at Heritage from 5th grade until 7th grade. In my experience, the teachers were wonderful; in particular, I was very grateful to have Mr. O'Leary as my math teacher. If it wasn't for his class, I would not have made it into the college I am in now. He made sure to go over everything with us step-by-step and offered us a lot of practice opportunities; he even had a study hall/tutoring class at the end of every day for those who needed it. Thank you! I'd also like to acknowledge Mr. Holtz in particular; he taught us how to make movies using green screens! How cool is that? =) The students there were friendly overall, but there seemed to be an undercurrent of 'win-at-any-cost' among them. This was not only in sports, but also in academics. It was a little disconcerting to me.

excellent school and principal. also the parents are involved and they did very well and the kids are learn from they own parents...


Posted March 24, 2008

Heritage is an outstanding school with great importance placed on PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT, which is crutial to your childs education. My children have been attending Heritage for 8 years now, through thick and thin. I have never known that being a friend of your childrens' teachers was possible--let alone beneficial to your children's education. I can go to any of my children's teachers, both past and present, to talk and get advice anytime. Also having a child with special needs that does not attend Heritage, I personally have seen the difference in this school and a REGULAR public school. Heritage is definately not for every family, but is definately the best possible education in the HIGH DESERT and beyond.

Wonderful structure, immense parent involvement and a principal whom truly loves the kids.

Just any other public school? What is meant by that? Every school is unique, so don't take that other person's comment to heart! Heritage is what most schools wish they could be. It is a school of choice so most everybody there wants to be there, and if you don't like it you can find a place that better suits your student's needs. Parent involvement improves just about everything. Parents are welcome at Heritage and they know it! Teachers understand the importance of parent involvement. Students like having the parents around and they like getting to know their classmates. They have a sense of belonging. Look at the test scores! Need I say more? Come and check it out for yourself.

My child has gone from Kindergarten through the 8th grade at Heritage and he has had struggles and triumphs just like any other kid. He will leave Heritage with fantastic math skills thanks to the Saxon program and is an avid reader and writer thanks to the Spalding curriculum. He ran Cross Country and played Soccer and has gained friendships that will last a lifetime. He is respectful and appreciative of his teachers and is sad to be graduating this year. Heritage does not deal with issues that public schools have to deal with, i.e., foul language, dress code issues, weapons, overcrowding, bus riding issues and so on. The family atmosphere at Heritage is awesome. The parents really pull together when the need arises. The kids have such a rapport with the staff and are able to develop without the intense peer pressure of the public schools. Yeah Heritage!

This School is just like any other public school. It has no exceptional teaching methods, curriculum or teachers. As a matter of fact some of the teachers should re-evaluated why they are there which should be teaching and not defaming character. One thing is the teachers really like to discredit students by having all grades read out loud in class... I guess it is very time consuming to actually look at the grades themselves and enter it all in the same setting. Please look into it very carefully.. it is not all it is cracked up to be...

I was a student at Heritage from 4 years old to 13 years old, and it isn't pleasant being stuck with the same 40 kids for that long, especially, when nobody wants to be your friend. The teachers want the school to be the best in the area so bad, that often times, they would move too quickly, making it hard for the class to keep up. Overall, the school was good, though most of the money came from parents and fund raisers. Heritage is a hard school, but some of the teachers are really good, such as Mrs. Tress (3rd), Mr. Holtz (computers), Mr. Pearson (5th), Mr. Anton (7th & 8th History), and Mrs. Barton (7th & 8th English)

I am a Heritage parent and I firmly believe that our school is the best school in the High Desert. When you have parents that want to be involved in their childrens education working together with teachers and students as a team it creates a strong support system and that is encouraging to the children. Heritage is a big family and every kid should be lucky enough to have that growing up. Heritage does equal greatness and I am thankfull to have the opportunity to have my child enrolled here.

The Heritage School is excellent with an outstanding reputation in all of the High Desert. The teachers truly care about the students academically as well as personally. The staff is outstanding, friendly, knowledgeable, and a cut above. The principal is amazing, conscientious, thorough, and efficient. It is a place that feels like family from the moment you walk up to it. The librarian has a passion for children like no other. Every encounter with the school has been a positive one for our family. We have one graduate who is almost a 4.0 with 3 honors classes at the local high school, proving how well prepared he was for high school. Our current student will graduate next month. She was able to play volleyball, cross country, be involved in the talent show, queen of the winter ball, quarterback of the powder puff football team, and a 4.0 student. Heritage equals greatness.

I have children currently attending Heritage School. For the most part, my children have had wonderful teachers who sincerely care about them. The Principal deals with the kids fairly and doesn't shy away from discipline when it is needed. The best thing about Heritage is the mandatory parent involvement. When the students have Teachers and Parents who care about how they do in school, it shows in the student's grades and in their character. I am thankful for such a wonderful school.

Posted April 23, 2007

I couldn't disagree more with the 'April 2007' statement. My children have both been there since kindergarten, eight years for one and five years for the other. I have not seen this downhill trend. Actually quite the contrary. Discipline has been handled well, very well. There is a high level of involvement all around and it is by far the best school in the high desert. I am very involved in the school with respect to my children and also the parent-teacher association. I am continually reminded in the various meetings that there is genuine concern from parents and teachers for every aspect of education, social and academic.

Posted April 16, 2007

This school used to be the most sought after school in the area. However over the last three or four years it has just turned into a general public school. The quality of discipline has literally gone out the window. In the last two years we have experienced students assaulting other students with baseball bats, teachers giving answers to tests to students, children cursing profanity, children using obscene gestures to parents, and a teacher loosing complete control of their classroom. Although parental involvement is mandatory, it takes a team effort on behalf of the teachers, parents, and principal to make the school what it was. In the past, the children were required to sit in their seats with their feet on the ground. The discipline was strict and general respect of students, parents, and faculty was demanded. It made for outstanding, respectable, well rounded children all the way around.

Teacher Feedback: I have been teaching second grade at the Heritage School since it began in the fall of 1995. The level of parent input concerning curriculum choices makes Heritage a unique school. The parents recommended Romalda Spalding's phonics-based 'Writing Road to Reading' program. This program gives students the tools they need to be great readers, writers, and spellers. Parents also requested that students be taught with the Saxon Math program, and our students scored higher than all other schools in our district on math achievement. Heritage parents, teachers, and students work together for academic excellence.

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.
