All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

As a parent of a 4th grader, a Kindergartener and as North East transplant I want to share how happy we are with the school, staff and curriculum. There is absolutely no where else we would choose to live and no other school we'd rather our kids attend, anywhere. The teachers are bright, happy, nurturing professionals who love these kids. They empower them, challenge & support them. The staff (Principal included) are open, warm and amazing to these kids and provide a safe and fun environment that my kids actually look forward to going to each day. Our "specialists" (music included) are passionate about their fields of expertise and the children feel that. My 4th grader this year along with her classmates will play her recorder with the NC Symphony, what an amazing experience! When reading reviews, before believing the negative (that often come out right around report card tine, go figure) I urge anyone to just visit HES. The moment you step through the doors you will feel the difference for yourself.

If you're coming from the Northeast be prepared for a shock! This school although considered a "good" school around here isn't even close to the level of education you get in the North. There's no school nurse on site, no real music program or languages. In NC teachers are poorly paid and that reflects on the schools. The PTA is great and it does a lot for the school. Principal doesn't get involved at all in daily school activities or events, kids (and parents) barely know her.

Unqualified teachers that don't follow proper procedures when it comes to student progress. Poor teacher parent communication, ad version to using technology and constantly asking for money for things for teachers that aren't classroom related.

We were so excited to come here based on the reviews; however, parents beware! My daughter's teacher refused to provide her with more challenging materials (a complaint we've now heard from several parents!) and when I brought this to the principal's attention, she tried to turn the situation on me. We are so truly disappointed in the lack of communication and professionalism here.

Heritage Elementary is a fantastic school! My son is in Mrs. Keen's kindergarten class and has learned a great deal this year. The principal and staff are very dedicated and create a wonderful learning environment.

I have 1 child now attending Heritage elementary, and 2 kids who previously attended. It is an excellent school. The kids are well prepared for middle school. The principal and staff are wonderful, they are always involved in the day to day activities and stays up to date with everythinng that is going on. The teachers make sure the kids learn, and have fun as well. My kids really enjoy being at Heritage.
