  • I myself whent to Heritage an di loved it!!! Its a place were one can feel welcome just by entering the front doors to the school. Its a safe learning enviroment for students to learn in and also it is a home. When we all think of the word home we imagine a warm loving family and that is exactly what this scholl is a warm big loving family who is willing to take anyone into there arms and say "Now your one of us".The Teachers are the best all of them really work with the with the students even if the students have trouble in that specific classroom subject they really know how to make a student like going to class and more imporatanly they know what a student needs and as we all know the right education and I konw for a fact that this school can provid that for even your child!!!
