Heron School Reviews

By a Former Student on

I went to Heron from 2nd (the year it opened) until 7th (I am going to Charter for 7th) grade. I loved that school because all my friends were there and the teachers were very helpful. They need more performing arts and digital arts stuff. That is why I moved to Charter. If Heron had all those things and more, a lot more people would be there, including me.
