Welcome Red Raider Families!
We are very excited to complete another year of change, growth, and success with your children! At Heritage Middle School we strive to provide relevant, rigorous instruction in every lesson, to every student, every day.
The mission of Heritage Middle School is to nurture the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development of its students, by providing high-quality curriculum and instruction in a positive learning environment. Our mission is to educate students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become productive, informed citizens of a diverse society.
The students of Heritage Middle School are provided with numerous opportunities to be challenged as they learn through rigorous middle and high school courses, including career and technical education courses and college credit plus courses (CCP). As part of our requirements, students are expected to have three years of English, math, science, and social studies. Students will also choose from a wide variety of elective courses such as music, art, foreign language, career connections, technology, and wellness. We have approximately 665 students in grades 6-8, and we use a seven-period schedule with every student given the opportunity for intervention and enrichment daily.
I welcome your involvement as we work to provide the best possible education to the students of the Painesville City Local Schools community. I encourage you to contact me with your ideas, suggestions, and concerns.
