Heritage Middle is full of students who are mostly above and beyond average. Therefore, this is a great place for students who need to be challenged. There are many AMAZING teachers here who are always actively involved in their students' lives. There's only a few rotten apples but the majority are lovely and are not just good teachers, but nice on a personal scale as well. As with any middle school, there are going to be a few petty people but for the most part, if you talk to others, you're gonna end up with some friends. The electives are mediocre but we have a great Art class. However, the other classes lack greatness. However, now students have the opportunity to take Spanish and earn a high school credit! I am graduating in a week and I have to say, this is an amazing school and I'm really gonna miss my times here! The good and the bad, they were all needed!
'12-'13 is our first year at this school and the staff in the office set the tone for the school. Recently, when I came in to get my child for a dr appointment, I was told that if the student is on Track 1 and it was during EOGs, then they (the Office Staff) would NOT release my child to me. And she wasn't joking either. I couldn't believe she said it. Luckily, my child is not on Track 1. However, this interaction did leave me wondering if I should have asked when the school decided they had custody of MY child. How can they say this to parents? I left the school shaking my head once again wondering why does the administration allow this? Perhaps they are unaware that their frontline office staff could use some class lessons.
I have a 7th grader who is struggling in math, so I want to tudor him. I have requested a meeting with his math teacher 4 times over the last 2 weeks (via email and voice messages), with no response. I am extremely frustrated because I don't know what topics to review with my child. He usually finishes his homework at school and was told he is not allowed to bring home his math text book.
I go to this school and i love it!! the teachers are always there for you and willing to help you. I got bullied by a kid and told the teachers. they immediatly took care of the problem. this is by far the best school EVER!!
Having moved here within the last year, I can say that there is no welcoming attitude towards new students or families. Middle school is tough no doubt, but the kids are not welcoming towards new students at all. The teachers are great but I really feel my child is getting lost in the system. We hope to look at other options soon.
My child has been attending Heritage Middle for 2 years and all I can say is that I am greatly impressed with the quality of education given at this school. The teachers are very dedicated, they keep their blackboard sites up to date so that not only the students but the parents as well know what is going on. I also appreciate the monthly newsletters from the track team leader. This school has instilled maturity in my child and has gone beyond meeting my expectations as a parent.
We are highly impressed with the dedication of the track one teachers at Heritage Middle School. They are a true model for the teaching profession. Transferring our son to this middle school from another in the county was the best decision we could have made...thank you HMS professionals...we appreciate you!
I am a current student at HMS and have attended the school for 3 years now and I am graduating to a magnet high school in less then a month and my experience their has been one I will always remember. Ever since 6th grade I have been constantly challenged and encouraged to push forward with constant help from all my teachers along the way. If your child is going to be on track 2, all the teachers are excellent! They make sure you are doing well and do whatever it takes to help you if you are unsure of something or having a hard time in a subject. Communication between parent and teacher is great as well. The athletic program is great especialy in soccer , track and football. Even though the electives aren't the best with no language program, the teachers are great! GO PATRIOTS!!!
My son is in 6th grade. His teachers are wonderful. This is the first time he has been appropriately challenged and kept busy. I love this school. The administration of this school is excellent!
Happy overall with this school. Excellent teachers with good communication, keeping parents well informed. Very sad that there is not a second language program at this school. That was one of the biggest surprises moving here from another state where Spanish was taught from 3rd grade.
Now with a 2nd child attending this school, I see that the backbone of this school is consistent. They are amongst few public middle schools in NC who receive a distinguished GreatSchools Rating 9 out of 10! They keep my children completely prepared, every day, using their Blackboard service (online scheduling of HW and events, prepared well in advance so if my child wasn't paying attention, I can). Some of the same teachers are still there this 2nd go'round. They must be happy! EOC results are at 95% consistently for 3 years now. Parents give HMS 5 stars. 5 out of 5 stars for principal leadership, extracurricular activities, parent involvement and safety and discipline. Way to go, HMS!
I have been attending Heritage MIddle School for 3 years and I am graduating in less than a month. I highly recommend Heritage to any body who is planning on enrolling there. At Heritage our main goal is to educate, empower, and enrich. Heritage Middle has become almost like a home to me. I played for the HMS Football and I ran Track&Field for two years. The Atheletics are great and so are the Academics! GO PATRIOTS!
Amazing school all around - glad we switched from Franklin Academy! Love the positive recognition and quality of teachers!
Our eldest child has been fortunate enough to have attended HMS for 3 years now. We have been incredibly pleased with the staff, the staff involvement with the children, the principal & overall policy. We would highly recommend this school!
Very impressed with the principal and grade level administrators. They are always visable and available. The only weakness I would mention is not having a pull-out AG or gifted program and no language courses available.
I Am A Student Of Heritage Middle, And Have Been For The Past 7 Or Eight Months, Heritage Middle School Welcomes All Students, And Is Very Serious About Learning. Its A Nice Place For Future Middle Schoolers, and For Present Middle Schoolers. Heritage Is The Definition Of A Great School.
I love it at this school. Everything is hands on, and nothing is too complicated.
As a student graduating from Heritage Middle, I have to say that I am extremely pleased with all the education and generally the whole school itself. Every aspect of this school seems to satisfy all parents, teachers, and students. It is a great school, and I definitely recommend it for anyone planning on enrolling there. Go Patriots!
