I was a student at HH from kindergarten through my senior year and I loved it. I loved it so much I send my kids there now. Those that are saying that the school focuses on athletics obviously aren't paying attention. Classroom performance is first and foremost. And the comments about the new leadership in the Lower School must have just had an issue with the division head. The entire Lower School is a happy and thriving place. The division head and her support staff are amazing! She was one of my teachers in high school and she's made the transition to lower schoo very well. She is very easy to work with and truly cares about each child. I will never send my kids any where else.

Heritage Hall has been an excellent place for my child. The teachers are wonderful. They are very attentive to each child's specific needs and are always available for whatever task. My child feels comfortable asking for assistance when needed. It has been a good fit for my child.

I just graduated from hh in may. I was there for three years. Every year things seamed to get worse. The classes became more crowded, the new teachers never taught us, one even had us watch YouTube in class everyday. The high rate to turnover keeps the good teachers from returning. The sports kids get away with everything while the kids who focus on academics are pestered and get in trouble for stupid things. Do not send your children here!

Amazing school. My son attends this school, and has found the focus is not simply on sports as suggested by the other reviews. He is an avid member of the debate team, the second or third best in the state, is part of the honors society, and also takes an intrest in drama, which is a huge part of this school.

Heritage Hall was not the right fit for my child. My daughter was only in Lower School there and ended up wishing she had never asked to stay. Everything seems to focus on the athletics department, which is not why I send my daughter to school. I send her to school to receive a proper education while learning the life skills that she will need for the future and this school was not our answer. I would not recommend sending your child here.

HH is amazing. I cannot imagine sending my children anywhere else. My children have thrived and continue to thrive each year. The individualized education for the children would be impossible to find elsewhere. HH focusses on leadership, service and the love of learning. The children are aware of this at a very young age. It is a precious, safe environment that is academically excellent in all areas!

Loved it so much as a parent, and now that I work at the school, I can't say enough great things about it.

I attended Heritage Hall for 8 years, was a National Merit Scholar, and went on to be very successful at a prestigious university. I now work in education and study teacher training and effectiveness and student achievement throughout the country. From an alumni perspective, Heritage gave me everything I needed and more to be successful in college. From the perspective of someone whose job it is to study schools and their teachers, Heritage is an example of what great education looks like. At a school which boasts many excellent programs and dedicated leadership, I look back most fondly on the teachers I had at Heritage. They were intelligent, dedicated, creative, and positive, and I credit them with much of the success I've had since graduating. This is an excellent school, and I feel very blessed to have attended it.

When I rate this school as average, remember tuition is high, so this school should easily rate Excellent. I am a former teacher in the Upper School as well as a parent of a former Lower School student. During my time there, I saw many children who were indulged at home and never corrected at school. Snobbery, privilege, and disrespect ran rampant. The children of donors could get away with anything. The headmaster typifies the lack of morals and integrity of the school. There are some teachers that genuinely care about the students and the small class sizes can help, but this school does not live up to its public image or potential. For most students, it is a training ground for future politicians, socialites, and swindling CEO's.

My two boys love going to school at Heritage Hall. The preschool building is state of the art and the teachers there are top notch. They encourage the students to learn and always take a positive approach to any discipline issues. The teachers strive to provide a learning environment that is safe and conducive to learning and are always available to me as a parent.

This is our second year at HH for our daughter in the high school level and our first for our 2 sons in the middle school. We believe this school is, by far excellent is so many ways. It encourages well-rounded students who are exposed to not only team sports but also the arts. Faculty, in general, are very supportive of the students and the parents. Like many schools, there are isolated occurrences when we have not agreed with a teacher or staff member and they could have handled the situation in a better manner. Nevertheless the small classroom size, their striving to improve in many areas, their improved communications, are all positives. My kids will be ready for success in some great universities.

My three children have attended middle and upper school at Heritage Hall. They have received exceptional instruction at both levels. In addition to the academics they have enjoyed the extra-curricular sports programs that have allowed them to get to know their peers better outside of the classroom setting.

Our child's teacher was removed from her classroom midday this year. This was a teacher whom all the parents and children loved. This teacher taught math, reading, science and social studies through real-life activities. Her classroom included gardening vegetables, tadpoles, praying mantis', ladybugs and chicks. she taught students about botany, biology, physics and chemistry. She taught students about art history and world languages. The school will never be able to replace her.

Checking back through all the posts, I found an '07 post stating, 'the landscape is dotted with unqualified teachers.' I found that my 2 daughters' teachers wrote in sentence fragments, did not always have sv agreement and must misspelled many many words. They seemed confused when asked about curriculum content.

I agree with the last poster about the new headmistress, however, I must say my childrens' teachers are good. The headmistress is pretty hard-nosed and down right rude.

As a lower school parent, I am very disheartened with the school environment my children have experienced this year. HH used to be such a warm, inviting place filled with happy children, happy parents, happy teachers and a happy headmistress. I'm sorry to say this year is completely different. The entire ambiance of the lower school seems dreary and unstimulating. There's a new head in town and her communication skills and people skills are horrible. You would think a private school would place higher value on public relations. We are not renewing our contracts as long as she is there.

As a former student I would say the biggest problem with Heritage Hall is that the students have their goals set too low. While most college prep schools ship students to Ivy League schools, Northwestern, Vandy, Duke etc., Heritage Hall lacks in this department. Sure 99.99% of graduates go on to college, but 75% go to OU. There are a few students each year that go to prestigious schools, but I feel that the average student does not aspire to this. I would attribute the 'public school education for a private school price' description to this. If the kids only want to go to OU, then why make the curriculum challenging? However, I did enjoy my time at HH, and considering the other education opportunities, it is one of the best schools to attend in the city and state.

It's a great school with stong academic standards and numerous extracurricular activities including a required community service program. My kids love the opportunities in sports, which wouldn't be available to so many in a large 6A school.

I graduated from HH in 2003. And I am about to graduate from college now, I do have to say Heritage did prepare me, but not as much as a private school should. I see others at my college from St. Louis private schools or others in the state, and from the vantage point I have we're a little behind. The school needs to let 1998 and other sports programs behind, this isn't Texas. The school needs to find more teachers like Dr. Powell. Heritage must care more about their academics instead of their sports, once they excel more in their academics they should start working on the balance with sports! The debate program used to be the best in the nation, then we won a state title...

The school does focus primarily on sports, but there should be some clarification on how it does this. Because this school is influenced heavily by obsessive parents, including the self-elected/governed 'board of directors', most of the sports programs are dominated by the more powerful parents and alumni. Teachers with poor qualifications dot the landscape at HH. Turnovers are high, and mostly due to internal power struggles in the overly obsessive administration staff. More than one teacher has vanished without reason in the middle of the day. Listen to the posts here HH - they speak the truth - only you can fix the issues addressed.

As a member of the Board of Trustees at HH and with two children having graduated from the school I can attest to the quality of education, leadership and service opportunities as well as the many options available to students in the arts and athletics. We offer our students 11 sports with equal emphasis placed on girls and boys athletics. The school just completed a $15,000,000 capital campaign to build a new middle school and performance auditorium, gymnasium, improvements to lower school and an indoor athletic practice facility. Our students attend the finest colleges nationwide. Heritage Hall is great school and only getting better.

Contrary to previous post 'Education is public school quality at a private school price.' This is obviously a kid or parent of kid that couldn t hack it at Heritage Hall. The proof is in the pudding. We've had two graduate from HH. They were both very well prepared to go to college, one graduating from out-of-state school in 3 1/2 yrs and pother in Big XII schools now. One of the best educations in Oklahoma period! Athletics does need an overhaul starting at the top. HH is a bit obsessed with football due to winning one state title in 1998. AD needs to focus more on girl s sports, which are better overall This will catch up to him eventually. Security could be better too. Campus ingress/egress way to easy.

School is obsessed with athletics and raising money but little else. Teaching caters to the lowest common denominator. Education is public school quality at a private school price.

Heritage Hall is the best school ever! I've been here since preschool and I plan to stay through my senior year. Sports and Academics are equally important. Teachers care about who you are, not who your sister was or who your brother was--it's about you and who you are now. So many different classes are availible! It's great!

All teachers, coaches are controlled by the same board president, 10yrs and counting so they all jump, as their contracts are renewed yearly this is very disruptive to all aspects of campus life, especially sports, the best will not play. Safety is not a problem, very expensive though. No band or other fine arts. Great sports facilities, but school only cares about varity football coaching in other sports is sub par.

My child has attended lower school here and presently in the middle school. The lower school was excellent and academically the middle school is good but, there is no music program and it is completely obsessed with sports and building new facilities. The upper school has some music but not much instrumentally. Too bad for Oklahoma City when we have few options. Overall, this school is what our parents attended if they had gone to public school.
