I am very happy with the academics of the school. I am also pleased that all the teachers are wonderful people that love the kids they teach. I wouldn't send my kids any where else.

My kids love to learn the Bible, and there's a great principal, staffs, and amazing teachers in HCS. I strongly believe that you'll not regret with HCS.

My children have been at HCS since kindergarten (they are currently in 4th & 6th grades). The teachers are exceptional and work tirelessly with each student to achieve their individual potential. The rules are strict and the workload is considerable, but in the end it is all worthwhile. My children function at a considerably higher level than other children their age (I attribute much of that to HCS). The price is affordable (frankly, we pay less for their education than we did for daycare). It is a relatively small school and there aren't as many extracurricular activities, so families may need to supplement with outside sports, but the academics won't disappoint! I would strongly encourage families to investigate HCS if they are in the market for a K-8 school. HCS has comparable test scores with the more spendy Pierce County private schools (i.e. Annie Wright and Charles Wright). If, given the opportunity to start my kids all over again, I would, without hesitation select HCS!

Heritage is an excellent school for the values, academics, and competitive performance. It's about 4 years ahead of the public schools. My daughter is doing the work of a high school junior in 7th grade. I can't recommend it enough.

We love, love, love this school! I would send my children here again and again. The staff are awesome, God-loving people who love teaching and children. Mrs. Marcelia is one great school secretary who has been around for over 20 years, she knows the school inside and out! The neat thing is the staff knows you so well that they know my younger daughter (4 years old, not yet kindergarten) by her first name. All I can say is wow!

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.
