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.

We are so grateful to have found American Heritage of South Jordan! Here, we have found that the classic education approach to teaching inspires our children's minds and goes hand in hand with the faith-based values they instill. We are grateful for dedicated teachers who care deeply and carefully lay the perfect foundation for learning. We love the small class sizes, which allow each teacher to truly know their students and help them individually to succeed academically, emotionally, and socially. Besides a strong academic curriculum, our students have also had the opportunity to participate in high school sports. It has been a motivating and uplifting experience to see our sons learn the importance of teamwork and integrity as they compete at the high school level. We sincerely enjoy the sense of family that we feel at this great school!

We love AHSJ! We have attended the school for 5 years now and it has been a wonderful experience for our family. The teachers and administrators are so great and truly care about each student. The smaller class sizes make it the perfect atmosphere for my boys that are on the Autism spectrum. The teachers have always been so great to work with my boys and to cater to their individual needs. I would highly recommend American Heritage of South Jordan!

This was the best move for my daughter. Public middle school is hard and overcrowded. Moving to AHSJ has made a world of difference. She is thriving in an environment that is safe and fulfilling. It is not only pushing her academically, but instilling values outside of the classroom. I am so thankful to have found this school. I would highly recommend it. I only wish I would have found it sooner.

We love AHSJ! I am so glad we made the switch from public school to private. I love the smaller class sizes, curriculum & values taught. At AHSJ you feel like you are part of a family.

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.
