My daughter graduated from AHS and is now thriving at a top college in the NE. So glad we chose this option for her- it was a sacrifice but worth every penny and the faculty and admins are superb!

This school has been amazing for my daughter. She started 9th grade this year. The curriculum is rigorous in the honors classes. The student needs to be ready to study as the tests are graded as a large percentage.There are many opportunities to seek out what the child loves and will be good at. Tons of options in terms of sciences, arts, languages etc. The students are also placed according to their skill. One thing I love is the administration and deans. The students do not get away with anything and that is great for the teachers and students.

Our son who recently graduated and our daughter who will enter her sophomore year in the fall at AHS have excelled in all academic areas, clubs and organizations, and sports. The learning environment allows each student to create their own personal journey that allows for success in and out of the classroom. The teachers provide a rigorous environment to prepare them for college. I can`t imagine any other educational institution that would be a better fit for both our children.

My family and I have been highly impressed with our overall experience at AH. Every person we have come into with is helpful and polite. My son loves his classes and has been able to seek leadership positions in the clubs he partakes in. He loves his new school.

We discovered this school when my oldest son was in second grade. He has learning challenges and we tried quite a few schools before coming to A.H. Before this school my son cried everyday and felt horrible about himself. Now, he is learning and happy and wants to go to school everyday. He is now in sixth grade and still happy!!!! I also have a 1st grader and he is also thriving. Zero tolerance for bullies and the teachers and staff are dedicated and trustworthy. They work hard and will work with you as well in order to help your children succeed.

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.

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.
