We had a very caring first year with Ms McIntosh. she did such a fantastic job!
there were a couple of lil bumps with another student along the way which is why we rated it only 4stars. Hopefully next year it'll be a 5star scoring.
Heritage Elementary is a great place to work. I also have children at the school and am pleased with the education that they are receiving! The opportunities that students have to explore their passions are remarkable.
Heritage is a wonderful School. As a parent and an employee I feel very confident in the education that my children are receiving. My children are above their grade level in learning and the communication between teachers and parents is excellent. The Principle and Vice Principle are wonderful.
We love our teachers at Heritage. As with most schools, you have a few that are questionable but Heritage also has some superstars teaching our students. Our interim principal is doing a great job under unusual circumstances and is somewhat more efficient in handling student issues than the outgoing principal was. However, I do not completely agree with the previous post. Douglas County has some awesome teachers but their hands are tied behind their backs and the schools are having issues because of bad decisions being made by the Douglas County Board of Education. Do your homework, talk to people in the community, search the net, attend a board meeting BEFORE you enroll your child(ren) in any Douglas County School.
Wonderful teachers and programs. Douglas county has great schools and this is the best! I have 5 children and they have all loved Heritage. We have a great principle and friendly staff. Not only have my children done well in academics, they have also learned responsibility in a secure environment.
Heritage is a wonderful school. The past 2 years the atmosphere and general feeling has taken such an upswing. We finally have a principal who encourages parental interaction and welcomes feedback. Is he ever going to please every family? No. We don't live in a perfect world. I have 2 children, one in fifth and one in third. One high level (close to GT) and one on an IEP, this school does a great job servicing both of them. The front office staff are wonderful. The EA's care about the kids and many will go out of their way and above and beyond what is required of their job. I am proud to have my children attend Heritage.
After four years at this school, we have finally decided that enough is enough. My children are not getting a good education here. The teachers for the most part are decent. However, there is such a lack of communication at this school, I can hardly believe it. I have no idea what my children are learning and I AM a very involved parent. The math curriculum is absolutely horrible and will not prepare my kids for the future. If the goal is to confuse children, then they are doing a magnificent job. When the new principal came we thought that the school would turn around. However, we figured out his true agenda when we had a meeting with him. My kids will not be indoctrinated anymore.
I have had a great experience with Heritage and also feel the negative reviews are either outdated or from parents that will never be happy with any school. The new principal is fantastic and has really stepped it up in the face of the DCSD budget crisis. The school is thriving and so are the kids that attend.
