This school is great the teachers are awesome. They are very organized and I love it. Their food is also very good. It's no heated up Mexican food like burritos.


Posted May 16, 2013

If you're not fully satisfied with the school registrar, PLEASE ask to meet with a counselor or the principal BEFORE your child starts! My child wasn't placed correctly bc I was told there were no other choices. I later met with a counselor and found out that wasn't the case. It was too late though since my child had already started. Although, I believe teachers at Heritage are good, they should meet to discuss trends among their students, like behavior or academic changes.

I like this school....It is very clean. There is no bullying. The teachers are nice and will help you. There are also after school activities like: Tennis, basketball, Track, Cross-country,and many more. Heritage also have a Science Magnet to those students who love science.I go to Heritage and I really like it.

My sister goes to heritage and she has not seen or heard about anything bad.She is completely in love with the school.I've been there a few times (my sister goes to cheerleading and we have to go there to pick her up) and it is very clean and big.also all the people there are very nice.All the times I've been there I have not been bullied either.My sister has told me about the food there too and they have subway, a sallad bar and pretty much some other really yummy foods.I think heritage is a very nice school and i am definately going there next year.

We love Heritage! We have never experienced anything bad there. Great teachers, no bullying that we've ever heard about. My daughter has never seen a fight. They are the science magnet school for the district so they have very new and up to date equipment. I have told all my friends and neighbors how much I love this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
