My daughter attended high school at Heritage. It was a great experience. She had the opportunity to get college classes and received great individual attention from the teachers. The science and math curriculums are challenging and have done a good job of preparing my daughter for college classes as she wants to be a doctor. Thank you to all the teachers of staff of HCS!

We have had our children at Heritage Christian School for the last 14 years. The school's academics, mission, size, and extra-curricular programs have given our kids a quality education, safety, character, and great friendships. Missing are the distractions, pressures, and liberal influences that keep many children from getting the education they need. Our oldest daughter graduated from HCS, attending from Kindergarten, and found that she was much more prepared for her college courses than many of her peers.

HCS has been the perfect school environment for our children. Our children are challenged academically, have good Christian friends and are active in extra-curricular activities such as select choir and sports. Our son's 6th grade class this year ranked in the 87th percentile in SAT scores! (This is the national ranking, with 50 percent being average.) And this is not a group of brainiacs, they just have an excellent teacher. The spiritual atmosphere is great - I love that what we teach at home is being reinforced at school.

A good small school with dedicated teachers, but it does not meet what our child needs in science. The school does not teach modern science. It is God only. We believe in God and also in science. An improvement in the science classes would make HCS one of the best in Topeka. Until the change students at HCS will continue to be behind when they leave for a higher education.

My daughter attended the public school system until Junior High. As we saw all the problems in the public school system, we began to search for a more conservative caring approach to educate our daughter... Heritage Christian School has been our answer and we have never looked back... The quality of this Christ Centered School far outweighs the traveling time to take her to this school and the costs... We are so fortunate to have this school in Topeka. We love the teachers who are there to teach Christ regardless of the lower pay. They are there because they want to be, not for the money.... God continues to bless this School.

We love this school! Our children's SAT scores are high and they are challenged by the curriculum. The curriculum is biblically-baased and the teachers are strong Christians and good role models. Class sizes are small - so our kids get lots of attention.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
