    "Heritage is a great school! Besides its academic accomplishment, there are many other things that make this school amazing. Heritage parent volunteers are the best! From putting together an enormous and fun school carnival, building and maintaining a school garden, to giving teacher support, the parent volunteers at Heritage are dedicated to making a difference in the students' lives. They even put together a Multi-Cultural Fair every year to give the students the opportunity to learn about different cultures around the world. The Garden Club allows for students to learn about planting and composting and my kids love the "sensory" garden. My kids also look forward to "Science Days". Students are given leadership opportunities in the Safety Patrol, Peace Patrol, Broadcast Team, and Student Council. The school has a boys and a girls basketball team as well as a co-ed soccer team. The students are also empowered to recycle plastic bottles by the school's "Go Green, Bring Fifteen" recycling program every Friday. We are happy that are kids go to this school!"

    "I agree with a previous poster who gave 1 star. My child was able to withstand almost 2 years at Heritage. We moved to this area specifically to attend this school, what a mistake! This school only cares about shoving information down the throats of these poor children in order to have them regurgitate it onto a test. There is such a resounding lack of passion in the teachers. They come off more as hostages doing what thier master is ordering them to do than a person whose calling it is to educate children. The buildings themselves are even depressing. They have tiny little windows on the upper part of the wall, it reminds me of a prison cell. Speaking of prison, the way the lunch is conducted is remininscent of inmates at a mess hall. The children are only given 10 min or less to eat and they are constanstly being yelled at. The culture of this school is cold and distant. The only sense of pride they have is their high test scores. Theres no pride in creativity, leadership skills, peace keepers etc. Its all about the bragging rights to those high test scores. The classrooms are packed to the max because parents fooled into thinking this place is good. Dont be fooled! Run."

    "We are new to the school.Before coming to the public school I had often heard from other parents how many public schools are just teaching to the test. Sadly, this was been proven to me in less than a month.All of the work (in class and homework) that my kids have brought home is strongly concentrated in language arts and math. I have yet to see samples of other subjects being taught. Recently they announced how the school had recieved state scores of 938. Yes, that is commendable but what does it really get them besides bragging rights...do they get more funding? I need to educate myself a bit more on what that means and maybe I wouldn't knock them on that."

    "I am so impressed with Heritage Elementary and the teacher s dedication to the students. I feel like my children are receiving the best in academia and development of social skills. The teachers really go out of their way to ensure all children are consistently learning and gaining confidence. Even though there are many exceptional teachers at Heritage, I truly believe there is one that stands out amongst the rest, a hidden gem if you will and that is Mrs. Bernstein. She is by far the best teacher and person in the entire district. She would absolutely receive my vote for teacher of the year!! One could only hope your child isfortunate enough to taught and influnece by this remarkable professional."

    "Too much emphasis on testing and teaching for the test; have an unfortunate feeling this is the case at all schools that rely on federal funding. Im definately not as impressed as the staff with test scores as a true measure of my childs success or failures.....and my child scores advanced in all areas. I feel the teachers are not enabled to teach to their full potential as they are too busy prepping our kids for testing. Again, this likely has more to do with the current state of public education in general than it does the school or faculty."
