We are so excited to welcome you to Edmond’s beautiful Heritage Elementary! Truly a living museum, Heritage recognizes Oklahoma trailblazers who contributed to our Edmond, Oklahoma, and U.S. heritage. These heroes such as Will Rogers, Shannon Miller, and Woodie Guthrie are role models for all of us as we are “Learning to be Heroes”–Heritage Heroes!
This year we will open a new 3rd grade pod. We anticipate having nearly 550 students—about 4 teachers per grade level. In accordance with state guidelines, we will be implementing new English Language Arts and Math standards, as well as a new reading program: Benchmark Literacy. Through professional learning communities, we seek to provide each child will a positive, safe, and successful learning environment with tiered supports and a climate of mutual respect.
In our first year, we achieved Great Expectations Model School status, one of only two schools in the nation to realize this accomplishment. We are excited to continue growing as we seek to implement this amazing program to an even greater depth.
Our school calendar/handbook provides important information about our school and district. We hope you will read it to learn more about Heritage. We will be happy to answer any questions that you might have. We also ask that each family review important EPS policies located on our website.
