A place where professionals grow...
The Heritage faculty believe in and model the pillars of Respect, Integrity, Self-Discipline, and Kindness (the RISK Model). We seek to meet all students where they are, and recognize that each has worth. We engage in professional and crucial conversations for the sake of students. We share strategies and resources so that we learn and grow together as professional educators. 
A place where communities partner...
Heritage graduates have a strong sense of societal citizenship and honor due to the stable and reciprocal relationship Heritage High School has with the local community. Heritage High School faculty and students recognize the value in partnering with parent and community stakeholders. Heritage actively seeks those partnerships through mentoring programs, the PTSA, athletic and academic boosters, and the Business Alliance.
