Faith Heritage in Syracuse, NY has truly been a blessing to our family.I am thankful to all the staff and faculty who consistently show their love and joy at serving at our school. Many teachers have blessed my children and it's some- thing that will last for all eternity.My children are very thankful to be at FHS and tell us so quite frequently.They wouldn't want to be any-where else.You also can't put a price tag on the wonderful godly friendships they've developed at FHS. My 2 oldest children started in 7th grade and my youngest in 3rd grade. One has now graduated! When they first started, eventhough they didn't know anyone, they felt very welcomed! It's been a wonderful experience for our whole family.

This is our son's second year (eight grade) at Faith Heritage. He loves how everyone accepts him including the high school students. This is the result of the big brother/mentoring program that is in place. Education and the Word of God that is taught at Faith Heritage is outstanding. Teachers are excellent and if you need help or tutoring on any subjects the school is there to help your child. Great school and glad we made the choice to send our son to Faith Heritage School in Syracuse, New York.

My children would not want to attend any other school even though started at the junior high level. They have felt accepted among their peers and have many friends. They love the combination of academics and athletics as well as the fine arts. We switched from a school with a weaker academic program and have been more than satisfied with the program at FHS. It is a great environment to allow students to question things they see in the world around them without the pressure to conform. I have enjoyed the opportunity to meet many of the parents through the various opportunities to volunteer or participate.

While encouraging a spiritual lifestyle, this school remains a 'closed' system. If a child begins here in elementary and follows thru, the child is a part of the culture. Children who attempt to participate later in their school careers are, if not shunned, at least made to feel that they are outsiders who will never become part of the mainstream population.

A great school where your children are nourished with love and the Word of God intergrated into all aspects of their education. It may be a struggle financially but it is worth it to have your children grow up into adults willing to take a stand for their beliefs and serve the Lord in their chosen profession. Wish I had the opportunity of a Christian education while I was growing up.

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.
