I am actually a graduated student from Heritage and I loved it there so much. There are teachers there who I still talk to and I'm in high school now. I would say heritage is a fun school with a good learning environment. The other kids are nice, the teachers are friendly and caring, and the school is just great overall.
I have sent three daughters through Heritage and recommend the school strongly. However, you have to be an involved and engaged parent to maximize the benefits of the school.
My daughter is in 5th grade and has attended Heritage for four years. It's a great elementary school with a wonderful principal. She's very dedicated and heavily involved including in almost all of the extra-curricular activities of which there are many. The academics are good, and there are opportunities to participate in many after school programs to enrich young children's experiences.
Both my daughter and son have attended Heritage and I could not have wanted a better school. The school has helped them both to succeed and do great in junior high and high school.
i love Heritage! i used to go there and all of my teacher's were awesome! The principal is very organized, friendly, and profesional. The school is also great because the teachers worry about your education and they go over a lesson with you until you understand it! Heritage is also very fun!
My daughter just started K this year. I am pretty disappointed in this school. First she was threatened by another student with scissors. I called the principle and teacher about this, they said they would address it and I have never heard a follow up to this day, 4 wks ago.I was waiting to pick her up one day and she was not in the cafeteria, I asked the teacher where she was and they did not know. Frantically I ran to the office and they did not know where she was either. I ran to her classroom someone finally tracked me down to tell me she was now in the cafeteria. This happened again with another parent 2 wks ago. There are 24 kids to 1 teacher, no aid. unless a parent comes in to help. Noone who works here smiles.
My girls are in 3rd and 1st and I absolutely love them being there. Mrs Ennis is wonderful. So happy she is so involved, knows the students, and loves the kids enough to care. My daughters teachers have been great! They have learned so much from them and are excelling.
The school does not intervene appropriately when student teachers can not perform well in the classrooms. Students struggle to learn from such teachers . The school needs be in better control of the situation.
Heritage is changing after the principal Ennis took over. Some good changes are: more young teachers are hired and new after school activities are offered. On the other hand, while some of the parents are interfering with the school life way too much, the rest of the parents do not have ample opportunity to be involved. The principal does not let parents to choose teachers in advance anymore, but let some parents to switch teachers afterwards. As for the academic life in Heritage- teachers do not have time and resources to help advanced students to achieve further. Special attention is paid only to kids who fall behind, which is very common practice not only at Heritage, but all around the state of Delaware.
This is the best school in Wilmington area. Principal Ennis is phenomenal; not only as an educator, but also as a human being. You're always listened; no matter how busy she is. Mrs. Maguire is the best teacher of all. Thumbs up for Heritage Elementary.
This school is so wonderful. The teachers are very caring & the principal is phenomenal. The principal walks around the school & is involved with her students rather than sitting in her office with the door shut like it was when I was growing up. She is right there with the children & the children LOVE her (as well as the parents)! The teachers really know their students & really make it a team effort along with the parents to make each child's school experience a successful & profitable one. The PTA is terrific too. There are tons of involved parents who just make it such a great school to be a part of. We feel so fortunate that we are in this school!
My son is in his second year at Heritage, it's been a wonderful experience all the way around. The teachers and staff are attentive and caring, the parents are involved and the students learn in a very nurturing environment. My first grader says 'Heritage is the best--all the teachers care about all the students', he loves it there. The extracurricular programs are great--there are school plays, assemblies, skating nights, sock hops as well as community support that the children participate in such as helping foster families, mitten trees and gathering donations for the families of soldiers in Iraq to make phone calls to their loved ones. All around it's super!
My daughter attended from Kindergarten until the 5th grade. She would have stayed until 12th if they would've had the grade levels. No one could've received better at that school. Every person was loved and respected. The principal, Mrs. Sullivan, knew all her students and cared for each one immensely. Each teacher, staff and employee were totaly dedicated. The 'Special Needs' teachers are the best of the best...there are no comparisons! They prepared my daughter for her future and gave her a thirst for knowledge that no one else could. Thank you Mrs. Dean, Ms Lenz, Mrs. Monaco and Ms Tuohy! Thank You Heritage for doing a very fine job in educating my daughter.
