Heritage High is the worst. You better have a pocket full of money for your child to go there. If you want your child to be treated fairly & not lose their self esteem than send them anywhere but Heritage. Not a fan of this school with the "favoritism" system they have going on. I know I'm not the only person to feel this way. Ringgold or Lakeview would be the better choice for equality.

If you don't have a lot of money than this isn't the school for your child. The children of parents with money come first for all things. I have talked with several other parents who have the same opinion. We can't get our children out of this school fast enough.

Great School with a great administration. The office staff however gives a horrible first impression of the school and their interaction with students and parents leaves a lot to be desired.

This school, when compared to others, is superb! A fantastic campus, an involved caring principal (Bradford), a large number of advance degreed teachers, and in general the teachers seem dedicated and professional although I'm certain there is an exception or 2 as opposed to the majority in some schools. In addition the community shows an above average amount of parental involvement.

Disrespectful teachers. My daughter loves this school and most teachers but, some of them and the helpers don't need to be their.
