I went to school at Heritage for 2 years and it was little more than a joke - seriously. I had fun and played a lot, but academics are non existent. As long as students came to class, they pretty much passed. I knew of several student's whose parents paid the teachers to receive a better grade as well. Although, I met some cool people there, I had to get away in order to get a real education. Heritage is a good school for kids who have no hopes of graduating from a real school. There are no sports there, and many of the kids are wannabe thugs - there are a lot of illegal things passed around frequently.

This school is NOT a good school at all. My son attended here for summer school, and he said that on the first day of school he had heard kids saying vulgar language, acting wild, and even that the teachers were doing nothing. Please do not send your children here. Every child is on their phone,cussing, and doing things that the rules say "no" too, yet the teachers don't do anything.

I have seen a picture of the 11th grade teacer sleeping in the class. Her head on the desk. Kids allowed to use cell phone despite rules saying not to. NO LEADERSHIP. I FEEL SORRY FOR THE STUDENTS.

I went to Heritage acadmey for 2 years. Its a good school for those that are not academically inclined. There are no sports to speak of but it does offer a good atmosphere and staff to student ratio. Also there wasnt alot of harrassing or obnoxious students as the size of the school is fairly small and limits the amount of students per class. Basically, you can get a decent education here if more 'stringent' schools arent willing to accept you.

Great school our son graduated from Heritage and is now married and owns his own business. At all schools you have those that want to learn and those that want to disrupt. Without Heritage our son could have ended up on the wrong side of the street. Heritage was and still is a blessing for those that want to learn. Wray M. Anderson

Very crappy school. I went there for a little over a month. I wouldn't send my child there if it were the last school on Earth. If your choice is between Heritage Academy and homeschooling than choose homeschooling

I am a mother.My son attends this school. I feel that the school has no structure. The children run wild in class my son has called me several times on his cell phone from class so that I could hear the goings on in the classroom. I don't know where the teacher is have the time but the class is out of control. In addition, I think the school should have a sports program for these children. I have removed my son after 3months there. He has fallin further behind.
