Exemplary Programs
At Heritage Elementary School, we have implemented exemplary programs that encourage social as well as intellectual growth. Our teachers follow the Red Clay District curriculum which is based on state standards and grade level expectations. Our Talented and Gifted (TAG) program emphasizes above-average ability, creativity and task commitment. Formal placement begins in second grade although our TAG teacher works with students in all grade levels with group enrichment activities. We also promote a safe learning environment through school-wide rules, guidance lessons and special programs that teach children how to avoid bullying behaviors and how to think before they act.

Curriculum Highlights
The Heritage language arts program focuses on all aspects of reading and writing, including phonemic awareness (sounds), phonics (sound/symbol relationships), comprehension (making meaning from text), fluency (reading with expression and proper rate and accuracy), and vocabulary acquisition. The writing program focuses organization, development, word choice, sentence variety and mechanics. In math, we have a new curriculum where the focus is on helping students learn mathematical concepts, operations and relationships; carry out mathematical procedures accurately and efficiently; reflect, explain and justify their answers; become problem solvers; and see that mathematics is useful and worthwhile.
