I thought Heirway was great until they got rid of their old principal for a 'newer model.' Younger isnt always better. This school is lacking diversity in its staff and school board. Teachers are stuck in the past. I did not feel like my child was supported.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
