We LOVE Heritage Oak School for our children. We moved into the area knowing that the new environment was going to be a big transition for our children. Heritage Oak School fosters parent involvement in such a way that surrounded us and our kids with encouragement both emotionally and academically. We have found community here in beautiful Tehachapi, California through Heritage Oak School. It is an answer to our prayers for our children and family!

All of our four children have (or are) attending Heritage Oak. Our two olders are graduating from Universities and were more than well equipped for the rigors of university level academia. Our two youngers are still in attendance and we could not be more pleased with the school. Maybe more important than just the education has been the preparation for life, both spiritual and otherwise. We also the love the influence the teachers have had on our kids and the friendships they have formed here.

We've been privileged to be a part of Heritage Oak School since 2001. So many people have invested their time, their skills, and their love for Jesus into our children. Our daughter graduated in 2010 and our son graduated in 2013. We're convinced that they would not be the excellent young people they are without Heritage Oak School coming alongside us in the education of our children. Heritage Oak School graduates young men and women with a strong desire to impact the world for Christ. We're excited to have our younger children attending, too!

I have 3 children who have or are currently attending Heritage Oak School. We love the academic excellence, biblical worldview of the curriculum, the awesome teaching staff, and small class sizes. Our oldest graduated and went to college and found that HOS did an excellent job preparing the students for the rigor of the college classroom. I highly recommend this school!
