    Teacher s email 1 hour before class which is almost impossible to get ready to school and do what is necessary on their emails. Wendy s the director is so slow in so many aspects There was a fee for a 3 years old $80 lab detail is for the construction of the lab. Arff it is just a pain this school the toys are old.

    HCA has such a warm environment with a strong emphasis on living a Christ centered life. Great teachers a strong principal and an involved parent population make this school top notch.

    We LOVE Heritage. It has a warm family like atmosphere the class sizes are small and it's evident that the teachers really love their students. The academics are excellent and I love that they also put great emphasis on values and how to be a good person not just a good student.

    We just started at Heritage Christian and it has been a wonderful transition. My son is shy and the smaller classes (with great and inclusive kids) has helped him to make friends more quickly. The teachers are wonderful! They truly partner with the parents individually so each parent feels that their child is getting the education that is best for them. The school has a great curriculum and is always open to changes to make it better for the students. We also appreciate that the school's values are consistent with our values at home. There is a family feel to the community and many parents are also very involved in school activities. We love Heritage and know we made the right move in enrolling our kids here.

    HCA is a great school with a heart to help children and parents. Small class sizes contribute to better teacher/student and better teacher/parent interactions. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a quality education that includes good moral standards too.

    I LOVE HCA! My son attends full day preschool there and I couldn't be happier with the education he is receiving. We just moved to the area from the East coast a few weeks ago but my son settled right into his new class where he was greeted by a warm caring teacher. She uses a system called "zoophonics" to teach the alphabet and after only 2 weeks my son keeps pointing at letters which he now recognizes while we are driving in the car. He has so much fun and is learning a lot every day. Great school!

    HCA has small class sizes therefore giving the students more individual attention. The coordination that happens between all the staff to help keep consistency helps. As recess coordinator I strive to help with the rules in he class are the rules on the playground. I am very proud to work for HCA.

    We like HCA very much. It is a place where you find both parents and teachers very dedicated in helping children develop their characters and academics. The school is a ministry of CrossPointe Church in Bothell WA. Recently it has started a new program called Arrowsmith to help children with learning dysfunctions. Teachers in this program are trained to identify the weaker cognitive capacities that underlie learning disabilities which affect these children both academically and socially. The program is aiming to help children achieve permanent change with their cognitive weaknesses. Although my children are not in this program I am touched to see how teachers and parents work together tirelessly to bring this program alive and many families can now benefit from this effort. I highly recommend this school to others. The school faculty truly has the heart for our children.

    It's a wonderful school. The teachers are very caring and truly have your children's well-being and education at the core of their teaching. In all things they strive to model Christ and show the kids the love of God. Our son has been there for over four years now and has learned a tremendous amount and made many friends. And when our daughter was of age we did not hesitate to enroll her there as well. It truly is a community and partnership with the teachers administration parents and students that make this place a super place for kids. The Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) is very involved and each year raises thousands of dollars to improve the school facilities. And the school has just recently just added a science lab. My son enjoys Chess Club and our daughter who is in Kindergarten is also learning Spanish.

    Solid ideals and no fake "Christian" school here! Terrific level of education and dedicated staff. My children know they are at their second home.

    I have taught at HCA for many years and fully support its mission vision and partnership with the families that are here! The staff is a family in itself and we pass that warmth and caring onto the parents and children we are privileged to serve. We strive to identify each child's individual learning style and support them academically socially and spiritually with the resources we have. Our small class sizes allow for students to receive the attention they need to succeed. HCA has a legacy and a unique quality you will be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

    Heritage has been our school for 12 years. My children have received an excellent education being taught by teachers who really love and care for each of their students. I love the smaller class size and family atmosphere here. Preschool Elementary and Junior High programs are all excellent. Don't expect a big sport program this is a smaller school. Everyone knows your child at this school they will not be lost in the crowd!

    A hidden gem of Christian highly academic education - Pre-school (half and full days) Pre-Kindergarten Kindergarten (half and full days) Elementary school and 7th through 9th grade Jr. High. Smaller classroom sizes additional staff (including two teachers in each pre-school class art PE computer lab Spanish music robotics librarian and a full-time school nurse). The school has a wonderful and loving environment giving each individual child attention and challenging them to be their very best.

    Our children have attended Heritage for 5 years. Each year we are surprised by the growth in our children and impressed with the excellence of the education and staff. We highly recommend Heritage for any child who's parent cares as much for what goes into a childs heart as their mind.
