By , a Parent on

Heritage Charter School is a wonderful place to put you children in. They only allow 20 students per class, which allows your kids to have one on one time with the teachers. The school in general is fabulous, your'e not just a number here, you really get to know your childs teacher and the school staff. They ALL work so hard at making your childs education the most important thing there is, and they really encourage parent involvment here. As a parent you have the choice to come in a help out with various activities, such as: reading time, class parties, book fairs, food sales, and others. I would recremmend anyone and everyone to put their children in this school. Education is so importand and this school really puts that above all.
