On Health & Safety: I think this school is really safe. Bullying almost never happens because of the loving environment promoted in the school.

On Extracurriculars: There are a large variety of clubs and organizations that my high school funded.There were multiple music groups including marching band, pep band, an orchestra for the winter musical, an after school choirs, and much more. These organizations require a considerable about of commitment because it takes dedication to be skilled in music. Although they are demanding the organizations are seasonal so students have the opportunities to be involved in other extra curricular activities. Heritage High School has many different sports but a few unique ones include a gymnastics team with full equipment, a boys hockey team, and diving teams for both genders. The track program has sprinting, distance, hurdles, pole vault, and shot and discus coaches. Many of the sports teams go on out of state trips to attend tournaments. The marching band goes on trips every other year to play music. In 2012 they went to Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic. These trips have excellent fundraising opportunities. There are other clubs like the alpine club which enjoys beautiful Colorado by hiking, there is the key club which serves the community through volunteering, and also clubs like the brownies, lemon aid, and games club which surprisingly became very popular.

On Teachers: The teachers were definitely pretty wonderful. They were very engaging and caring and took time to get to know you as a student and as a person. They were all very knowledgeable and gave great lessons. I loved the grading system at Heritage because I could always easily check my grades online to make sure I was doing well and I could talk to my teachers about my grades. They were very good at communicating and getting students involved. Ah man, I miss them, actually.

On Educational Outcomes: I felt relatively prepared for life after high school once I graduated from Heritage. The social and personal skills that I gained in my time there really helped me to grow as a person and prepare me for social situations and making connections in the real world. I wish I would have taken a class about balancing a checkbook and managing finances, as they were offered, but I just didn't have the time while there.

On Resources & Facilities: I never took the bus, so I'm not really sure about that. The school building was always clean and well-maintained. It's a great facility. Computers were readily available in the library or computer labs. Guidance counselors were always helpful and friendly. College prep was big at Heritage. There are a lot of college prep resources available. Parent involvement was good. They were always looking for parent volunteers on trips and things.
