"The Heritage School is a non-sectarian, co-educational, independent, college preparatory day school founded on Judeo-Christian principles with community support, to provide a program offering a personalized educational experience for children of strong character and academic promise, regardless of race, sex, color, religion or ethnic origin.
The School believes in challenging each student to develop his individual potential and seeks from the beginning years to instill in each student an appreciation of knowledge and lifelong learning. The School recognizes that its students need to develop an enthusiasm for education; a firm ethical and moral foundation; appropriate social skills; well-honed oral, artistic and written communication skills; a body of mathematical, scientific, historical, geographic and literary knowledge; and the well-practiced ability to think creatively, to read for information and pleasure, to gather and organize data, and to analyze and draw conclusions. The Schoolâ€™s program consists of a sequential curriculum of essential disciplines, periodically reappraised in terms of the design and appropriateness of education. The School strives to provide a program of sufficient breadth and flexibility to afford its students the opportunity to excel in any of the curricular or extracurricular programs.
The Heritage School seeks to provide a nurturing environment that encourages students to discover and use their intellectual and creative potential, to rely on their own judgment and initiative, and to develop an awareness of how they learn best. Teachers strive to identify individual talents and learning styles and to help direct students to programs in which they find interest and success.
The Heritage School believes that , in assisting students to develop healthy self-images, encompassing physical, intellectual, emotional and social capacities, it will enable them to become more sensitive and compassionate human beings and contributing members of a democratic society.
