The mission of Heritage School is to educate leaders who make our world a better place. Achieving this mission requires a trustful and respectful environment where people are free to express themselves and to continually seek truth and excellence in what they do. Students, staff, parents and our alumni accept these principles when they join the Heritage community. In doing so, they agree to follow the following Community Values:
The School is a living model of these values. To this end, everyone has a personal responsibility to integrate these values into every aspect of their experience here. Through our personal commitment to these values, we create an environment in which all can achieve their full potential. Our values are a set of guiding principles for all that we do, wherever we are and with everyone we meet.
Respect — We act with no harm to other’s feelings and seek to treat one another the way we want to be treated. We honor diversity and consider ideas and opinions that are new or different to our own.
Growth mindset — Our abilities change and grow through determination and resilience, by setting high goals and being open to innovation. We accept difficulties and failures as opportunities to grow and we seek inspiration in others’ success.
Responsibility — We are ready to own tasks and duties and get them done. We are conscious of the actions we take and confident in making difficult choices. We are responsible for ourselves, others and our environment.
