Being a student here at Heritage, I can tell you simply that this is a perfectly good school where a great education can be obtained (when effort is added). This school, like all other high schools in Loudoun, follow the SOL curriculum to the core, so there is really nothing much to differentiate it from the others. My personal experience with teachers have been positive, with most of them showing a pure, genuine interest in the subject they teach, which personally is a big plus/motivator. You can tell, however, that they feel very restricted by the SOL system and would like to teach on their own merits, but there is nothing we can do about it - the system does its job and we're lucky to live in such a county where we have a generous enough budget to put smart boards in every single classroom. Kids from all walks of life are here. If you're looking for the preps/drama, you'll find it. Otherwise, be yourself, be good to people, and you will do just fine. Overall, I am not only satisfied with Heritage High School and its contents (teachers, students, counselors, etc.), but I am grateful to have access to the high quality education I know I'm receiving.
