• HMS staff and the HMS HRS Team completed the Level 2 certification process for Marzano's High Reliability Schools in the spring of 2020! Level 2 certification means Heritage Middle School has established “Effective Teaching in Every Classroom,” which focuses on the responsibility of both school leaders and teachers in ensuring high-quality instruction. The HRS program was created by Marzano Research to help transform schools into organizations that take proactive steps to ensure student success.

    HMS staff will continue to improve on Level 1 (Safe, Supportive and Collaborative Culture) and Level 2 (Effective Teaching in Every Classroom) for the 2021-22 school year as well as start working on Level 3, a Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum.
