Welcome to Heritage Elementary! Heritage opened in 2017 and is one of four elementary schools in the Dallas Center-Grimes Community School District. We are located at 500 NE Beaverbrook Blvd in Grimes, Iowa. Heritage is home to approximately 350 students, which includes optional kindergarten, and kindergarten through fifth grade. Preschool is also offered at Heritage Elementary.
At Heritage Elementary, students are empowered to be reflective citizens with a positive mindset focused on continued learning and growth. Our shared vision is “Growing Together to be Our BEST!” We strive to help students be responsible, extend kindness, show respect, and think with an open mind.
Heritage staff are dedicated to professional growth & development as they regularly collaborate in professional learning communities (PLC’s), aimed at continuous improvement in the areas of teaching and learning. Our District Model guides our teachers’ work in the classroom by focusing on the 3 C’s:
Our District-Wide Areas of Focus allow us to achieve the 3 C’s and put our model into action.
