Mrs. Kim Ellsworth has been the principal of Heritage Academy Laveen since we opened in 2014.  She has done a great job as principal here and while we would all love her to stay forever, her talents are needed elsewhere at this time.  She has been asked to serve as principal of the new Heritage campus in Maricopa expected to open in 2019.  While we will miss her very much, we wish her the best as she continues to bless others in her career.  A new principal will be hired very soon for the Laveen campus.  Until this position is filled, our assistant principal, Mr. Kyle Leybas will be acting as the interim principal.
