    Overall Experience: My freshman year was rough and stressful because of the classes I was taking. I got better throughout the years and I loved every second. During my senior year we lost a student that everyone loved and it was so heart warming to see all the students come together as one. That event made my school stronger. We also support one another on what sport or play is going on. Heritage is a great school and sometimes I wish I could go through high school again.
