    Overall Experience: The school in general is pretty great. The students all support each other and there is an abundance of school spirit and pride. We all come together at games and assemblies to cheer as loud as we can and go crazy to show support and spirit. The administration however is too strict on the students especially the seniors (class of 2016) they continually change policies and traditions that have been at heritage for years, in ways that make the class feel like they are punished. We often do not get to give our opinions or input before decisions are made that greatly affect the entire school.

    Overall Experience: The school has great spirit. Everyone wears their HHS gear on game days, goes to concerts and musicals, and the pep assemblies are amazing. The teachers really care about the students and make sure they get the help they need to succeed where ever they go after graduation.

    Overall Experience: I was overly stressed when I went to Heritage and found myself doing homework all the time, but I loved being in band.

    Food: There should be more food in general because in the later periods of the day it tends to run out and you only get one or two options, and there needs to be more healthy foods

    Administration & Policies: I always thought there should be more than five minutes for passing periods because the tardy policies are really strict at Heritage.
