My child has been in this school since Kindergarten and we could not be happier with the education she has received. The teachers are genuinely interested in my child's academic progress and development. I drop off my child every morning knowing she is in a safe and nurturing environment. I would however like to see the owner of the school invest some money in installing fans in the outside lunch areas and to expand the activities center in the back of school to accommodate more people during school events and activities. I would also like to see more art history being taught during art classes. Overall, I am extremely happy with the school, teachers, and administration. We just love it!

The Heritage is wonderful. The teachers are very dedicated and the class size is small. The school is a safe environment because everyone knows each other and the kids become like family. The principal is very approachable and knows you and your child by name. He is very involved with every classroom. I drop off my child every morning very content that I know he is in great hands.

I have been a parent here for two years and have seen such a decrease in the level of attention my child receives. The primary grade teachers are overworked and the teacher/student ratio is horrible for what the school charges. An assistant teacher should be mandatory for all primary grades. Parents are not permitted without appointments to assess the child's learning environment. Please beware and check out other schools in the area before you pay the enrollment fees.

The whole school puts up a front for the parents. Teachers are sweet, but the academics are not great. Tuition is extremely high for my child to go there, past daycare would educate my child more for half the pay. Would not recommend this school!

It is rare to find a small, family-friendly, accreditted school that values a bilingual, multicultural, and challenging education for children. As a Heritage parent for the past five years, and a teacher who has taught in several schools, I can say the way teachers have high expectations of their students, and yet take care of them as they progress through the years, is wonderful. For those of us who value keeping two languages, it is one of the best schools around. Compared to others, parent initiatives and input are valued as an inherent part of the school community. Staff members are all certified and take their time to get to know students' strangths and needs. Focus on fine arts, music, academic and extra-curricular competitions, technology, shows and P.E., provide a well-rounded education for students who are exposed to a variety of educational opportunities since the young age of three! Excellent!

I must say by far this is the best school any parent could ask for. My son had the privilege to attend this school for Prek 4 and he loved it tremendously. It is expensive, but it is worth every penny, I guarantee you will not regret your decision to send you child here. My son is well rounded and comprehends spanish extremely well especially coming from a family who is not hispanic and from a Jamaican background. Overall Incredible Campus and Superior Bilingual and after school Program!

I thought I had my kids in a good school, unfortunately this year I can say that it has truly been a disaster. The administration of this school has no respect for the children attending or the parents that have entrusted their kids to this school. There is no leadership, and the owners of the school only care about taking you money, as they do not care enough to take care of their business. The administration of this school is the worst I have ever seen, and most of all they miserably fail the kids in their safe learning environment. Their handbook is filled with great words, yet The Heritage School does not stand for what they preach. Submitted by a parent

I just attended Heritage Day at this school and it was just simply wonderful. The clean and ample campus was ideal to hold such an educational schoolwide event. Each class represented a different country and would take turns visiting each othes class. I felt that the event was so well organized and so rich in detail that it should have been covered by the local press. My son attends the fifth grade in this school and his country was Greece. This class did a particularly superb job as they put on a play based on the myth of ceation complete with props and toga attire. Prior to the presentation, 'Greek tour guides' would walk you through the various stations in the decorated class where other 'Greek Reps' would talk about the informational displays, helped with a craft and gave out worry beads. And you could munch on some yummy Greek food.

The academy program is poor, the kids spend more time playing than learning. Music, sports and extra activities are a nightmare. The parent involvenment is not permited by the administration , they dont want the parents only our money....The pricipal never have time to talk to parents and when you ask for the administrator , there is not one. We lost the money!!!! is a coorporation and they care about the money...

My Niece goes to this school and my sister is extremely happy. I have gone to the school with my sister to tour and have seen the children in their classroom setting. I take care of my neice and so spend a lot of time with her therefore know the teachers to be encouraging and knowladgeble. The last school she was in she had trouble because she was not being stimulated. Here she has thrived. It has been worth the pricetag so far.
