I am a public school teacher in the LV area so I am aware of the difficulties teachers and students encounter each day. Academics ofter fall victim to behavior problems and overcrowded classrooms. Parents offer little to no support, and the teachers are forced to teach to the below-average using such misguided techniques such as Common Core. American Heritage Academy has got to be one of the best, if not the best school in the area. Traditional Christian values are taught, as are love of country and the significance America has played in the world. The Founding Fathers are respected and the teachers are loving and qualified. I love hearing the fun ways my child learns each day and the special activities they are able to enjoy such as birthday celebrations, etc. All this and a quality education. Choosing this school for my children's education was one of the wisest decisions we have made. We would recommend this school to anyone looking for a sound traditional education.
We are new this year to American Heritage Academy my boys have been in private education since kindergarten I wish I found this school from day one. AHA has instilled LEADERSHIP,PATRIOSM,and FAITH in my children I want to thank the administration and faculty from the bottom of our hearts. Your mission,philosophy and results prove themselves.
American Heritage Academy in Las Vegas is an incredible school! Their strong academics coupled a nurturing environment while encouraging best performance and independence. My boys love this school as do my husband and I. It broke our hearts to leave; however, our job situation required relocating outside the state. Initially we had some concerns that our different denomination might be an issue, it absolutely was not, and our boys have grown both spiritually and academically at this institution. My children relish school, yet, when they went from private to public it was a disaster. Our bright boys began to feel unintelligent and unable to learn. They grew to hate school; the halting public school paradigm was rendering its emblematic stain. AHA turned that around very quickly and it was sheer pleasure to watch our children not only fly but soar; each day brings new revelations as to depth of what they learned from American Heritage Academy. It is our fondest prayer to return back to Las Vegas and put our children back in this school.
To say that American Heritage Academy is a "great" school would be like saying that Mother Teresa was a good person.At times I find myself trying to explain the feelings I have when I see the way my daughters (1st &5th) have grown not only as scholars, but as human beings,AHA has given them the tools to be confident students and little girls full of joy,respect but mostly it has allowed them to KNOW that there is great pride to be had in the heritage of this great country that they blessed to be born in, my children feel the know the fore fathers of this great nation,because of all the rich history that is taught at AHA, I feel such pride to see my children participate in weekly devotionals as well as daily prayer, I am thankful to all the dedicated teachers and support staff that make AHA the wonderful education facility that it is. The one thing I would change if I could, would be that many more families had the opportunity to enjoy this learning institution as my children have, all children deserve a safe, loving and spiritual education. At AHA all these elements come together in seemingly perfect harmony. AND Mr.S is the biggest plus, he is a gem.
I enrolled my son into this school and pulled him out after 2 months. This school misrepresented itself from day one. Also, the principal and staff are very disorganized and made promises that proved to be untrue.
American Heritage Academy goes above and beyond. After attending several of the schools productions and events I feel deprived of not receiving a classical education. What they do with their students or "scholars" is truly an amazing sight to see them develop their character. That's what's lacking in our schools is accountability and God. I truly see the power of relying on a foundation that is solid and withstands time. The scholars here know more about our country than I do with a degree in Political Science. There is truly something to be said when you can see the results of excellent education in the process.
I am very happy with American Heritage Academy. My children love going to school and learning. The academics are challenging and the teachers all have outstanding teaching skills.
American Heritage Academy is the best private school in Las Vegas. The teachers really care about their students and talk to me often about how my children are progressing. I am happy because their test scores have improved and they are learning a lot. I have looked at many other expensive private schools and American Heritage Academy offers more with the small class sizes, the fine arts program and the advanced curriculum.
American Heritage Academy continues to grow in achievements, we couldn't be happier. 4 years ago we moved into Las Vegas. We had been attending one of the best private schools in the western US. We were concerned we would never be able to replace the education our child had grown to love. After attending Cornerstone Christian Academy we were frustrated, Our children, who loved school, were beginning to complain about having to attend. We were unhappy after the first few months and began to look around. This Small school, with limited funds, had a big vision. I can honestly say, American Heritage Academy is best faith based school in Las Vegas and our children love attending. The curriculum is outstanding and challenging. Our children are excelling and learning well beyond their years..I recommend this school enthusiastically! I honestly feel we now have the best Education for our children.
American Heritage Academy is wonderful! My child started within a few days of turning five. I was amazed to see what her was learning and the dedication of the staff. Due to the economy and the loss of my job, I was forced to move to Utah. I cannot tell you how much I miss the staff and American Heritage. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is concerned with the quality of education for their children.
American Heritage is a fantastic school! My kids just completed their first year at AHA and we couldn't be more impressed, not to mention it's a lot more affordable than most other private schools. It's also growing and recently added a preschool. Check it out!
Our boys love American Heritage Academy! They are able to excel at their own pace and not the pace of the classroom. There is an environment of love and comraderie amongst the children that we did not see in other schools. The teacher-per-child ratio allows teachers to develop strong relationships with each child and be involved with their individual development. We love the focus on faith, patriotism and leadership. Where else can children get that today? As parents, we marvel at how much our sons are excelling academically; how their self-confidence grows; how much they are learning about our founding fathers; how much they enjoy school and more important to us, how much they are growing in their faith. We highly recommend this school to everyone!
This is my sons third year at AHA and what a blessing. I have 4 children that have attended CCSD and I have watch the deterioration of the public school system. I was looking for an enviroment that would invite a love of learning. The small class sizes and inspiring teachers have help my son have confidence that he can improve in any area of his schooling because he can govern himself. It is worth the time and energy to visit our school so that you can find out for yourself.
My second grader loves this school, this is the quality educationthat all children deserve
Finally! This school is doing education right. They teach moral responsibility, they insist on modesty in dress (uniforms are required - the kids respond well because of pride in appearance) and modesty in word (there is a ban on egotism, and no child is treated as 'hands off'), The entire staff speaks politely, and respectfully, and uses proper English. The students are learning in a polite, respectful and well-spoken environment, which is priceless, regardless of cost. Got AHA? Not yet? Why not? The price can be adjusted for you, the curriculum is based on our American heritage, thus the name of the school, and the school makes our children thrive, not simply survive! This is a very down-to-earth school, and they have kept the distractions of cell phones, video games, television, movies, distracting and provocative clothing, disturbing and inappropriate music, all if this out of the children's way. God Bless AHA.
We LOVE American Heritage! We are starting our 5th year with this school and will continue to send both of our children into this wonderful environment. We feel that the education they receive is the best in the Vegas Valley. The teachers are respectful to the children and the children are respectful to thier teachers and one another. The are taught morals, values, and how to think and form thier own views on the world after being presented a way to make good decisions. They are taught from a wonderful curriculum and are constently challenged. The school only adds to what we teach them at home and is a strong addition to our family goals and values. American Heritage is a great addition to our valley.
Fabulous school! Great teachers! Small classes, bargain pricing! We're about to begin our third year. We've sent one child through the K-12 CCSD and never again!
What a great school! Our family has been with American Heritage for four years. We love the teachers, the curriculum and the small class sizes. They do give a quite a lot of homework. I feel very secure leaving my child in an environment that is safe with morally strong, loving teachers. My child is getting a wonderfully top notch education for a very good price compared with other private schools in the Las Vegas area.
This is our second year with American Heritage Academy. The teachers are outstanding, and the curriculum is phenomenal. I love the smaller class sizes. The environment is safe and filled with teachers who love and care for their students. I also love that my son is at a school that is founded on a strong moral foundation. I could never go back to public school. We are extremely pleased with AHA.
What a great school! Our family has been with American Heritage for several years and love the backbone of the education. The four day week is so nice for the kids, yet they still get a better education than a 5 day school! They give a good amount of homework (especially on that 'day off'), the kids academic performance just really speaks for itself! There is music, art and PE...they even do specialized courses for the students from time to time like Chess, Spanish, and others. I think it's a great school...the price is one of the lowest in the valley, and the education is top notch! I'd strongly recommend this school!
