A good school.

Excellent school! As a former teacher in one of the best school districts, we have no regrets sending our 3 children here!! The teacher-student ratios are better, the staff is vigilant to any parental concerns, SAT scores have ranked equal to higher in past few years, our kids love the biblical education

Overall, the academic quality of the school is outstanding. Although I am sometimes put off by the 'old scripture' way of teaching children, it generally appears to work. Misplaced comments regarding lack of and/or insensitivity to diversity are without merit. Finally,Parents at Heritage Christian

As a student at Heritage Christian I can honestly say that I have learned how to serve God in many ways, and their methods are great. We are not sheltered and I'm sure I will not be 'shocked' by the 'real world.' The teachers are great and teach us how to be great leaders in life. Great school and worth

I went there for 9th grade. I think it was an ok school. But it was to expensive & I thought the school was to strict in its rules. However I don't think it was as bad a school as some people imagine.

A failed attempt at Christian education for many of the students that they attempt to serve. A core methodology that doesn't focus on science skill building at an early age. The idea of diversity - within race, ethnicity, beliefs and socio-economic levels is lost in a false 'color blind' community.
... Read more While there are clearly competent teachers within any school, the experience was a collective failure for our family. We take partial responsibility for this mis-match, as we recognized that there was neither the desire, will or commitment to progress nor a desire to see all students achieve their fullest potential. Parents are the first teachers for their precious children and should thus be cautious that everything that glitters is not gold. Leadership turn over, teacher sensitivity to diversity, strategic planning and staff development don't match the stated vision. A costly disappointment although individual gems exist. Read less

Heritage Christian is a wonderful school where students are challenged to work hard. Students are above average in many aspects, and the school excels in many areas such as sports and fine arts.

The administration of the high school handles student discipline in a drawn out fashion.. like they are making it a game. There is a hidden culture at heritage that no one knows about or expects. The teachers, activities, and students are fantastic and make it a great place to be, but the administration is just embarrassing. Read less

The fact that every lesson is scripture-based should be reason enough for a Christian family to choose this route. But, you also can rest on the benefits of knowing this is a college preparatory school that rivals any other private school in the area. Also, most Christian schools don't come close to offering the varied extra curricular activities. Most importantly, the teachers consider this a 'calling' not a job/career. They have been huge blessings in our lives. Read less

This school was good for me at first but now with all the bad leadership changes it's going down the drain for me.
