American Heritage School5

My husband and I are extremely pleased with our decision to move our two children from public school to American Heritage. Aside from the wonderful teachers, broad class selection in academics and the arts, we are extremely impressed with the technology taught to our children. They use iPads daily in their classrooms and have learned to easily navigate through the latest programs and academic sites. We also love having an assistant supporting the teacher in the lower school classes. We feel that this allows the teacher to focus on truly teaching and meeting individual needs. Guidance is also tremendous. The individual attention you receive as a parent is wonderful. We feel our children are safe, receiving top notch education, and will be more than prepared for college. We couldn't be happier with our decision.
I am an alumni (class of 1988) with three elementary age children who attend American Heritage. My family could not be happier. We love that our children are getting the best possible education in a diverse family friendly environment. My children enjoy going to school; I love seeing all of the alumni who work at the school and alumni who send their children to the school. My wife and I know that being exposed to so many different programs (engineering/robotics, marine biology, medicine, math, law, television production, newspaper, theatre, dance, orchestra, visual arts, 70+ clubs, etc.), will help our children find their passion and we know the teachers and guidance counselors will help nurture the passions. We could not be happier and would recommend the school to anyone who asks.
This school motivates without threatening. The teachers are really connected to the students. If you want you're child to be thriving, not to be afraid of making a mistake, this is the school for you're child. The school is open minded (very important for us) where the child still can be a child. Yes, it is expensive, but you as parent and you're child will receive so much. This is a wonderful school.
American Heritage School is AMAZING! There's definitely something for everyone here, and not only are the academics superior but the opportunities available to the students to pursue their passions are unlike any other school in Florida for sure. My children are thriving here and we feel so lucky to be part of the AHS family.
You don't want your child here. The administration smiles to your face and tells you what you want to hear while passing your child along and doing nothing to assist them with being prepared for college. Myself and other parents are trying to have an investigation launched into this program. It feels like we have been taken advantage of and defrauded.
As a parent of two graduates of AHS, I could not be happier with the school. My girls learned responsibility, organization in addition to having been exposed to the a rigorous curriculum. The extra-curricular activities are beyond what you will find at any other high school in the area.
American Heritage School is a very unique place. Both of my children are happy there and they are very different children. It is nice to find one place where they can both be challenged and where they can both participate in the activities they love. The school provides students with so many opportunities. The only problem is choosing which things to do!
