Heritage is a great school. I've found them to be very caring and understanding regarding my son's education. Ms. Dunlap and Ms. Weston ensure that problems are resolved in a timely manner. Yes, I would agree that kids may act inappropriate sometime. But training starts at home, we can't expect teachers to raise our children. Is't that the parents responsibility? Kudo's to the teachers and the staff.

Principals are very careless there there to get pay not to discipline there students. Also there more racism from there point of you. My daughter was going there and was bullied and threat by several other students. Students are very careless about other classmates feelings and rude to there teachers. The way of discipline never change the student the issue never change.

Heritage has really gone down recently. They are so busy addressing dress code, but not on school academics. Basically a fourth grader is doing a 1st grader course. Hardly ever hace homework, I had to finally pull my kids out and put They in a private school, so they can catch up to their true grade level.

This school is horrible! Teachers have attitudes it's obvious they don't want to be there. The school is bad about communicating things to parents, especially in a timely manner. They do absolutely nothing to involve parents. Several good teachers who have been at Heritage for quite some time have left to other schools. The staff at the front desk are extremely rude and are bad about relating messages.

My son attended Heritage Elementary and I had very few problems with his teachers. They kept me informed about his grades as well as his behavior in class. They offered tutorials and Saturday school to ensure his success. I was pleased with the staff and the many opportunities and activities the school provides for the students. There are no perfect schools, just schools striving to do the best they can with what they have. And Heritage is one of those schools that have tried and is trying to build a successful foundation for students.

Most teachers at this school behave as if this was just a job and do not treat what they do as a profession. Not all but most behave as if they were simply babysitting and do not offer any help to struggling kids who are unable to learn due to large classroom sizes. In the words of the 3rd grade teacher who I asked to help me try to get my sons grades up "I can not give him anymore attention that the rest" I then asked if he could take the work he wasn't finishing due to the fact he didn understand her and she replied "Sure after I grade it, he can take it home and finish but Im not giving him credit". I then realized she didnt care about him learning. She as pathetic as having a Doctor who doesn't care to heal patients. My son now goes to Abiding word on Red Oak its been a blessing.

Teachers are young and inexperienced. More focus is spent on discipline than the child learning. For the involved parents, very hard to get replies back from the teachers. Get low or minimum input on how to effectively be involved in teaching the students at home.

when I was younger, I honestly hated this school. I was bullied alot because I was "fat" and "talked like a white girl", these people had no right to say such things about me and it was sad that the teachers never realised what was taking place. It took years for me to stop hating myself because of the shunning and the names they called me, sometimes, I still think I'm ugly and fat but I know that those people who called me those names were the ugly ones and that they'll never amount to anything by the way, this bulling started when in second grade when I moved but, I moved here in the 2nd semester, the bulling stopped when in 3rd grade, only because I moved to another school.I never told my parents though, I never want anyone to go through what I went through.

I've subbed at Heritage several times and i've found that a majority of the students are disrespectful and take little interest in learning. There are major behavior problems among students at this school.

Great kindergarten teachers. Lots of activities. Great recess center. Awesome music teachers, and gym. Lots of kids though. Last year the Kindergarten had a problem with lice that was unsolved up to the summer break. I should have called the health department. No parent got a letter. I knew of at least 5 kids that were infested, and the school did nothing.
