My son, who has a disablity, attended this school. He was bullied to the point where he was hospitalized. He received good grades in math throughout his 7 years in the Plainfield school district. After I took him out of this district, his next school it showed he was at a much lower math level than Plainfield said he was at. They would pencil wipe his math to ensure the school district gets a good score.

Pencil whip grades and test scores to give the perception the school and its district are better than it really is.

Again, bullying at this school was allowed to continue. School and its social workers are horrible.

Can't really acknowledge this, don't want to criticize the students. The school itself does nothing to develop respect.

Bad school and a very bad district. Allowed my so, who has, a disability, to be bullied and then tried to act as if it was his fault. Very little response from the district and the school regarding this matter.

All three of my children attended this school, they were very well prepared for high school and I believe received a great education. As for all of the after school activities such as basketball, band, school plays etc. I always saw the principal in attendance. Very committed to the school. As a side note, all three of my kids attended the district wide Washington DC trip for 8th grade, it could not have been better planned or supervised, if your children are allowed this opportunity it is a great experience.

I am very happy with Heritage Grove, and that is saying a lot because I am very picky. My son is in the 7th Grade, he had an excellent 6th grade teachers, and I concur with the kudos for Mr Haas, he really loves to teach and it shows.

The new principal is very midrate and has not effectively done anything to bolster an already sagging educational curriculum.
