As a teacher, this is my first year at Heritage, but I was a teacher at Lake Clifton two years prior to Heritage moving in. Unfortunatly, I have to agree with the previous parent. There is much left to be desired, and a lot of improvements that need to happen at our school. We have a wonderful, careing and educated staff, but I believe that that is one of the only positives. Most of the students disrespect authority and their fellow students. The attendace average is ridiculous, the test scores are atrocious, and the students fail most of their classes, which are already 'watered down' compared to other schools. There are way too many fights also. I've had two in my classroom already. In my two years at Lake Clifton, this never happened. I don't know what to do to make it better, we've tried almost anything!
This school is a product of Lake Clifton being split up into smaller learning communities. The school was formerly called Harford Institute, but is now called Heritage High School. My daughter is in the 11th grade at Heritage. The school is extremely unorganized and chaotic. They barely have textbooks and materials. What was the point of opening all of these new schools, if they weren't gonna be provided with the proper learning tools? I'll just call this school 'Little Lake Clifton' from now on.
