Great school! Character building is top notch. HAS has what the public schools are missing as far as teaching students to become good and responsible citizens. My daughter is also well ahead academically of her peers in the public schools. She loves school!

I have worked at H.A.S. for many years and I enrolled my two children there for their education through high school. I have seen the caring and quality the teachers put into their work and into each student. Students at H.A.S. have received many awards, such as National Merit Scholarship Finalist, WV Golden Horseshoe Award winner, and a variaety of writing and other academic awards. H.A.S. graduates are successful. Even more important, I believe, is the character development encouraged at H.A.S. Encouraging good citizenship here and hereafter is a key to the success of the school. My children graduated from this school. It has given them a terrific education in academics and life skills. I would recommend H.A.S. to anyone.

I spent many great years at HAS. I attend from 7th-12th grade, those were the best school years of my career. I never has teachers care as much as they did at this school. After being there for many years, the staff and the students turned into my family. I got back and visit as often as possible and it is always like a family reunion. I feel very blessed for having the opportunity to attend this fine institution. If you are looking for and alternative place to send your children I would strongly recommend HAS. The quality of education is amazing and I am ahead in college for attending HAS.

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.
