Roots & Wings

Heritage Middle School is tailored to the

unique intellectual, social and physical needs of

the early adolescent. The structure of our middle

school helps our students to explore their identities,

begin to take academic and personal risks, hone

their interests, develop confidence in themselves,

and prepare themselves for the future.

Beyond preparing students for high school,

we prepare students for life.

Advisory period


The Advisory period is designed to address general academic, social and emotional needs of students at the middle school level. This program creates a contextual basis for our character education program. These classes areheld on specific Fridays and has a clear academic or social focus. There is an abbreviated schedule for these days.



  • The Enrichment period is a period provided for students to read self-selected books independently. Research on literacy at this age shows that students who consistently read significantly increase literacy and comprehension skills. The Enrichment period also allows us to support enriching programs in Music, Art, Family and Consumer Science, Business Applications and Technology to extend and encourage student growth. Students can also visit teachers for extra help. The Enrichment period is not to be used for homework.
