Heritage High School

Ringgold, Georgia

Heritage High School is a comprehensive high school designed to address the growing enrollment of Catoosa County Schools.

The school’s location within the 100-acre site is based on three major site considerations: excellent views to the southeast, a prominent ridge overlooking a stream and a visual connection to the county’s newest middle school.
