I have a daughter that graduated from this school 2010. I currently have my youngest daughter attending Heritage. I was happy with the school then. I am happy with the principal and some of the teacher's now. Unfortunately, the bullying is getting out of hand in sports. I am a parent that likes to participate in everything my child does in school and i have seen the coach watch some of the team mates be bullied by other girls in the same team and ignore it. This type of situations need to be addressed. Luckily my daughter is not one of the victims. Advice for parents that are considering sending there child here. If your child wants to be involved with there school and is shy and are looking to make new friends. This is not the type of school you want your child to enter. If the coach cant stand up for the children in a game. what can you expect in a everyday classroom.
Heritage is what a school should be specially if your child has special needs.Hher 6B and DLP team were awesome, can't wait til next year . Principal LaSalle is the best! She knows my child by name, sat in on some of her assessment testing and even attended her IEP -The DLP program is awesome- thanks for the growth my daughter has shown
My School is very awesome because this group of Sandoval's are There! Best Moment of my life! <3
I am graduating this year and I don't want to leave this school. I have grown to love this school a lot. I just hate to see my best friend go to a different school than I am. Once a falcon always a falcon
I love my school, I am graduating this year I have seen 2 principals and many teachers come and go. My time at HMS will be unforgettable. To that person that posted on Oct. 11, 2010, Principal Hodes was a great person and served HMS for 14 years. She might just be the most dedicated persons you've ever come in contact with! Even if 3 or 4 kids messed around. You are a class as a whole. So what if you go to Morton, the school will be what you make of it!
To the person who was class of 09, my daughter attending there when that was said and remember that, that is not the way you encourage children. The standards are very low, everything was put on a sliding scale so it did make it look like you were doing well. I moved right after she graduated I sent 3 children there and I have to say I regret not moving sooner, my 4th child is in another district in another county now and is doing work in 7th grade that Morton west freshman would be doing. Also I don't miss that principal she had no business dealing with kids with her I am better then you snobby attitude.
I was class of 09 and I have to say that my three years at HMS was a complete joke! The standards were very low and they tricked us into thinking we were doing very good, that is until I took my Fenwick entrance exam (recieved a score of 39% and needed an 80%). I felt sooooo cheated out of my education. Also, they punished the whole class of 09 for what a few dumb students did. They (the staff) brushed us off and auto passed us and made us morton wests problem. Thats pathetic. I will never forget that trashy racist low remark our principal said on the day we were rehearsing for our graduation. "you're rehearsing for your graduation in order to recieve your diploma and for some of you this may be the ONLY one you will EVER recieve". What a joke!
I have a son who will graduating from 8th grade this year and am happy that he has gone to this school. Every year that he has attended Heritage, he has made a lot of progress. He is a straight A student now and is looking forward to going to high school. He loves school and is involved in extracurricular activities in and out of school. Parents need to be involved in their child's eduation. Don't rely only on the teachers to challenge the kids. The parents also need to challenge them as well. I look forward to sending my two younger children to this school.
My son is attending heritage middle school I have decided to move because I don't want my son attending this school anymore he never has homwork he was doing harder work in 5th grade and the way they handle problems with the students is crazy I feel sorry for me and all the other parents that have to send there kids to this school Just read all the bad reviews
My child is a smart kid in the advanced classes that are available. My biggest complaint is that she isn't challenged and she rarely has homework. I feel as if she won't be prepared for high school. On the plus side the staff is very positive and friendly.
I have agree they need to challenge the students. The principal seems to be good as well as the teachers. They just need to challenge these children. I like the communication between students and teachers and parent and teachers and the availability of the staff when needed. My girls are receiving excellent grades, but I am afraid that it is not challenging enough. Extracurricular activites are there. But I do believe they need to include the 6th grade in sports as well.
I just graduated from Heritage and I am not in high school. I was in the honor classes and I was not prepared for high school at all. The only class that I actually got something from was English.
I have multiple children at Heritage School. Whereas my children receive excellent grades, I feel that they are receiving a poor curriculum. I do not believe that the school is challenging these children. The school needs to set higher standards and the school needs to have these other children raise up and tap into what their potential could be, and not accept anything less. Furthermore, after numerous conversations with teachers, I personally believe that they require additional training to meet the ever increasing needs of their students.
The experience that I had a t Heritage school was an excellent. The teacher and the school social worker were a pleasure to work with. I especially liked the communication established between all parties involved and the availability of the staff when needed.
I graduated from Heritage this year, and it was not the greatest of experiences. They disciplined us in a very poor manner, by punishing everyone for somthing few people do. Most of the staff at Heritage is poorly qualified, I hardly learned anything in the subjects of language arts, and math. I do not feel well prepared for high school.
I graduated from Heritage and I can tell you it was a wonderful experiences. 2 me heritage had everything a teen would want. Sports, good teachers, good education. I will miss Heritage.
