A few miles south of Downtown Wake Forest, Heritage is a planned golf community. Beautiful landscaping and stone walled streets add to this unique neighborhood's charm. Old time lamp posts are a quaint touch along streetscapes, and plenty of sidewalks make the development extremely walkable. The entire area is full of greenery which paints the summer landscape and makes for beautiful reds and yellows in the fall.

Heritage High School
Heritage High School is home to 1800 students in grades 9-12. Parents and students love the wide range of electives, challenging academics offered and overall community engagement of the school.
Heritage Middle School
Heritage Middle School is home to 1260 students. Heritage Middle operates on a year-round calendar. From their website…
“Students at the year-round schools are divided into four groups, called tracks, with each track having its own calendar. In a year-round school, the number of required school days is divided into nine-week quarters with a three week break at the end of each quarter. You have to think of the year in twelve-week parcels which include nine weeks of instruction and three weeks of vacation. That vacation period varies based upon the track.
Schedules are staggered so that, at any given time, three tracks are in school and one is on break. These staggered schedules make it possible for the school to serve a larger student population.”
Parents love the enthusiastic and engaged teachers and the ability for students to take high school classes for credit.
Heritage Elementary School
Heritage Elementary also operates on a year round schedule. School hours are from 8:25 - 2:55pm. There are 900 students enrolled at Heritage Elementary. Parents love the engaging teachers and administration.
