Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
July 13, 2015
Teachers at HBA encourage excellence from their students. They also go out of their way to help the students achieve that excellence. The school is small and may not have all the bells and whistles of bigger schools, but I don't send my children to school for bells and whistles. I send them to be educated and to learn to become more like Jesus Christ. My children have received an excellent education.

The teachers at HBA hold their students to a high standard. They won't let the students give up when the work gets hard. They encourage them and help them reach their goals.

The students of HBA always look out for each other. Although, no one is perfect, I never have to worry about my children being bullied while at school.

The teachers at HBA encourage students to always choose God's way. Because of this, the atmosphere at HBA is of honesty and family atmosphere.

Everyone from the administration, faculty, and staff has one desire: to educate their students for Gid's glory.

Must be small for a reason! Lots of students in pre-school and early programs and dramatically drops off as grade school goes up!!! A lot of the workers are related: Pastor, Principal, Education coordinator, Church Secretary and some teachers. 2 or 3 grades are taught in the same class room at the same time by the same teacher. Some of the courses are taught by DVD - even in elementary. Save your money and just us an online homeschool!

My daughter started at Heritage at k4. She is now going to be in the third grade. The teachers a have all been very supportive and have gone above and beyond to see that she gets whatever extra help she needs to explain something. I like the small class sizes, but would like to see the combined grade classes seperated as I believe that it does somewhat hinder the learning some.

We have three students who have graduated from this school and one who is still attending. Our children have been thoroughly prepared for college. We appreciate the family atmosphere and the Godly character displayed by teachers. This is truly a Christian school!

I am thrilled with the low teacher-student ratio... often fewer than 10:1. Upper elementary students read with lower elementary students. Emphasizes making choices God's way. My son, going into third grade, is reading books from the 5th grade classroom. I have seen the principal meet and work with elementary students... and he also teaches high school math (due to his background as an engineer).

My experience with this school has been less than satisfactory. The disciplinary actions this school takes against bullying is very questionable.There were several instances of direct bullying towards my child that were constantly brushed under the table by the teacher and the principal. I was even given the option by a teacher to go to another school instead of working together to solve the problem at hand. Staff at this school did not acknowledge issues that may have affected my childs learning ability and his saftey. This school would rather you as a parent compromise your values rather than adress and solve the problem.

My first grade son is reading chapter books to his toddler brother. Thanks HBA for phonics emphasis. Also strong emphasis on doing things God's way. Great foundations for the rest of his life. Easy access to teachers, principal, etc.
