School Notes

  • Each new student is tested for placement in the Saxon Math program--a highly rated curriculum that keeps participants functioning at, or above, grade level.
  • Each student participates in Classic Ed, where they study history and literature on a timeline from the ancients to modern day.
  • Math and science are required throughout a student's tenure at American Heritage. We believe such training will equip them to become competent and competitive in whatever course they choose in life.
  • Foreign language and arts courses are also taken in order to facilitate a well-rounded individual.

School Reviews

Amazing School!! This is our 3rd year at AHSJ. We love it! The class sizes are small which allows teachers to actually teach and keep distractions to a minimum. I can't say enough about the quality of teachers and administration at AHSJ. My girls' self-confidence (1st and 9th graders) has blossomed in this environment. They know their teachers love them and will do what ever it takes to help them succeed!

I believe that one of the reasons that my oldest daughter has done so well in public high school is that she learned how to study, think, and love learning from the great atmosphere and curriculum at American Heritage...she got an amazing education when she was young, which created the right foundation for continued success. Thank you to the wonderful teachers and administration staff for creating that for my children!

We have been happy with the education at atmosphere at American Heritage. Our children have been taught by wonderful teachers who care about them and challenge them to reach their full potential. We have felt that the administration is aware of our students, as well as all others, and makes decisions and implements ideas based on the needs of each student. Our children have thrived in their core classes and really enjoyed participating in the extra-curricular classes and activities. We are proud to have our children attend a school that promotes good values and strong education. We are extra pleased after just receiving our students'' end of year test scores.
