Students can be challenged more and given little more home work to improve their skills!

My daughter has been attending school since Aug 2015 and she loves it. I have seen significant improvement in my child's academic performance. Ms Page is an awesome teacher and my daughter loves her. Ms Page works with my child's capacity and include parent in child's development. My daughter is always happy to go to school and comes home excitingly to share what she learned at the school. The school staff is very friendly. Ms Stover is very polite and always smiling. its been a pleasant experience so far.

My child is in the ESE program at Heritage. The staff is experienced and works as a team. They include me as part of that team and work hard to keep communication open. The teachers and students make every effort to include students with disabilities whenever possible. The administration supports the staff and students' needs and is open to new or improved ways of meeting those needs. School wide events, committees and organizations also encourage students with disabilities to participate to the best of their ability.Most importantly, my child feels loved and safe at school. He is developing and learning in an accepting and nurturing environment.

Wonderful staff who cares about the students well being and academic achievement. Their PTA holds many wonderful events. The end of year Multicultural Festival is the best event of the year and celebrates the wonderful diverse community surrounding the school. I love this school.

My child attended this school last year in Kindergarten. He was in Mrs. Huffman and Ms. Freedman's class which is considered a coteach. These teachers are wonderful. They worked hard and got my child reading in no time. He became more outgoing and social. They are just amazing. I would highly recommend this school and this classroom.

I have witnessed discrimination towards the students and staff including those with disabilities. Administration retaliates against their own staff regarding the mistreatment of the students and teachers to keep them from reporting the truth. Administration is totally immature and unprofessional. As a former faculty member , I can assure you they had many complaints made to the Hillsborough County School Board and the EEOC.

Tutors (paid by parents) help some students DURING SCHOOL HOURS AT THE CLASS!! Also these students get additional advantages and privileges during the tests. During SAT and FSA tests the students, who were signed up for tutoring, were taking to a separate classroom (from the rest of the students) and were allowed to use DICITIONARIES! The rest of the students on their own. Looks like their achievments are not so importants to an administration and teachers, since the good grades are achieved by students with tutoring programm, so the School's students grades overall look good. It seems like this School achieved its good "B" rate by udsing this unfair "Tutoring system". I don't know if the Schoold Board approved this practice. Maybe it's in whole Hillsborough County.

We relocated from Northern VA- July 2014. I was very nervous about my daughter starting 5th grade at a new school- where she did not know anyone.. However, after just a few days she adjusted well and started making new friends and loves her new school. Her teacher- Mrs. Beckmann is superb! She truly cares about each student and has excellent communication with me regarding my daughter's progress! Heritage also offers various clubs and programs- which my daughter loves- Chorus, Running Club and Peer Mediator. Thanks Heritage Elementary and Mrs, Beckmann for making my daughter's last year of elementary school an awesome experience!
