North Heights is an amazing school. The teachers are committed and have a heart for children. The principal, Jeff Taylor, has a strong, positive impact on the students. After 2 years at NCHA my son has flourished, his self esteem has increased and his character is actively molded and shaped in a positive way. Thank God for North Heights!

I am putting my granddaughter through school at NHCA. There are not enough words to express how wonderful this school is and the quality of education where Christ is the focus. From Principal, teachers, all staff.

Cannot listen to non-christian music, even instrumental. Cannot color your hair (temporarily) for Halloween. Cannot read Goosebumps books, because they're full of 'dark things' but we won't tell you what. Cannot, cannot, cannot. A year long scar on my education.

I taught at NHCA for two years. The families are incredible. They are involved with their kids' education and are very supportive. The teachers are dedicated. They integrate Biblical teaching into all aspects of life and education. I have never seen a private school that has Biblical excellence AND academic excellence. The leadership at NHCA is amazing. Jeff Taylor, the principal is a wonderful example of servant leadership. He supports his teachers and, in doing this, gives them more confidence in their classroom. I quit teaching to pursue my own business. If I were to teach again, I would definitely go back to NHCA.

I attended North Heights for three years. I made lots of friends, the teachers are wonderful and I learned a lot. My favorite part of the school is chapel. There are skits and singing. I would love to go back to the school! (Oh, PS...the food is 5 stars!)

My children (now grades 6 and 8)have received an excellent education at North Heights. Not only are the teachers dedicated to preparing them academically for high school and beyond, but they are instilling in them the life skills of building relationships and treating God, others and themselves with respect and honor. I appreciate that a music, PE, and an art specialist are on staff and teach regularly. My children have participated in the sports program, had dramatic, singing and/or dancing roles in the all-student musical each year, and had art works displayed in the school art festival. They have participated in service projects. There are a lot of opportunities for them to practice and learn a variety of skills! All of this at a small school with a caring staff who are committed to high academic standards as well as the spiritual and emotional growth of each student.

We've had our children at NHCA for 6 years, with our oldest about to graduate from 8th grade. Excellent academics, wonderful cohesive atmosphere, and sound character development, with solid spiritual and biblical teaching. Of particular note would be the leadership of the school. We are confident that this school has set up our children for success wherever they go in the future. Additionally, we've been pleased with the extracurricular activities, including band and a good choice of sports.

I attended N.H.C.A. for eight years and my experiences there were great. The teachers were great, the learning enviorment was great, and the spiritual aspect of the school was great. The school prepared me well for my high school years, and for all the years of my life!

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.
