Our experience with American Heritage has been great! My daughter has loved her time there. The teachers are all so engaging, caring, helpful. The College Guidance Counselors are top notch and have been instrumental in our college applications.

This is our second year at AHS and we could not be happier! I have both a middle-schooler and a high-schooler, and am pleased with everything about the school - the rigor of the academics, the unity of the student body, and the compassion of the teachers. The administration, teachers, and coaches genuinely care and listen to our concerns as parents. Most importantly, I feel confident that American Heritage is a safe campus and that my kids will be prepared for college while also getting to truly enjoy their middle and high school years.

The Head of the Middle School personable and professional and is quick to respond to any questions or concerns! All the teachers have been amazing in taking the time to know my kids and what style of learning works for them.

My son is in the 5th grade and this is his first year at Heritage. He loves his teachers, the extracurriculars offered, and the kids he's made friends with. What more could a parent ask for? This school has so much to offer, and I'm excited to see what the next 7 years bring!

Our experience at Heritage over the past three years has been sensational. Having 2 children in the lower school, we have experienced grades Pre-K through 4th grade. Each year has delivered unbelievable academic, social, and emotional growth to both my son and daughter. Each of their teachers has gone out of their way to accommodate and enrich them way beyond the curriculum in all subject areas which has made all the difference. My kids have accomplished academic goals specifically in reading, math, and science I did not think possible. The family-like environment that starts with the administration and flows throughout the school is so completely unique. I am so grateful that a school like this exists.

We love American Heritage! It makes me so happy that my children spend their day at such a beautiful school. In addition the the top-notch facilities, the curriculum is challenging. Both of my children are in lower school and they adore their teachers. There is nothing more important than that feeling of safety/security when you drop your child off at school. American Heritage provides that feeling.

I am blessed to be part of such an incredible school. My children have been in AHS since they were three years old and now they are in various grades throughout the school and their experience has been amazing. Each child was taught using their strengths. My children have grown academically in ways that truly only bring extreme happiness to my husband and me. The academics are top notch and the school delivers the best well-rounded education to all students. The children love going to school and as a parent to see their smiling faces and eager attitudes toward school make the difference. We are so happy to be part of the AHS experience.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
