Heritage Elementary opened their West Campus in 2001 for students in pre-kindergarten through 8th grades in Glendale. The school caters to students to prepare them for their school years while using traditional early childhood learning methods as well as gifted. Special education is also available for students with speech, language, and certain learning disabilities. The campus offers a gym, library, computers, cafeteria, and has access to sports fields.
Along with the traditional core subjects, West Campus also offers extra curricular activities including music, band, choir, basketball, football, baseball, track, cross country, and volleyball.
There are quite a few mixed reviews at the school with some parents very excited the school and pleased with the achievement of their children. On the side of the coin, a few parents expressed their concern over parents and students that were disrespectable to staff, teachers, as well as other children and parents. This may not be a reflection on the school, however, when the issue was presented to the principle nothing changed with this behavior. The majority of parents and students are very happy with Heritage Elementary along with the teachers and staff. It would be in your best interest to talk with other parents since a few are having issues with the school, however, when you look at the test scores of the school it seems that teachers are doing every well providing students with the knowledge and education they need to aspire.
