    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.

    Sports & Fitness: Almost every kid played a sport at Heritage. I tried track for a while but I wasn't good at it so I stuck to horse riding.
