    I am a parent of a middle schooler at MHA and over the last few years have seen a renewed commitment to excellence in both academics and curriculum content all the way through grade 12. The elementary teachers are great strong in reading and math and provide many creative learning opportunities through field trips and hands-on experiences. The new middle school is doing a great job of preparing kids for high school in math science and language arts. The high school is focused on preparing kids for college (offers several AP classes) and a high percentage of graduates go on to attend college. The rigorous academic program within a Christian environment is just what we were looking for. The excellent teachers who work with the parents smaller class sizes the wonderful music program and the outstanding technology available at the school are huge bonuses! I am very pleased with MHA and so happy we found a great school 'family.'

    MHA has been a great experience my sister went to this school for her senior year. She has left a better person. My son is now enrolled in this school and we are loving what he is learning. MHA started a one to one laptop program smart boards in all classrooms do they are doing a lot with technology. My son participates in a Suzuki strings program and we love the environment he is learning in and he loves going to school everyday. I would recommend this school and encourage you to see for yourself. Once my son gets to middle school I'll post again!

    I went to MHA through the sixth grade. When I transfered to public school I found that I was two full years ahead of my age group in every single subject. I plan to send my children to MHA for sure!

    My husband and I graduated from Mile High Academy in 1981. Our oldest son graduated from MHA in 2009. Our second son in a senior this year. Both have attended MHA since first grade. We have been pleased with the education our boys have received at Mile High. While attending MHA our oldest son was offered a scholarship to attend Pacific Union College in Angwin CA. He is a business and pre med major in his junior year. He is doing well and on track to get in to med school. Needless to say we are grateful for the education he received at MHA that prepared him for challenging college classes. Our second son was recently recruited to play soccer at Walla Walla University in Washington. We are grateful for this opportunity and credit MHA's athletic program. I have never seen a more devoted group of teachers and administrators. They truly want every student to succeed and go above and beyond to show love and support for each student.

    As we wrap up our first year at this school we are so pleased with the experience our kids have had! We have found the teachers to be exceptional - both at the elementary and high school. They are committed to providing a quality Christian education and often use their personal funds to provide extras in the classroom. The appeal of this school is not in the outdated much-in-need-of-remodeling building but in the spirit of both students and staff and the strong Christian spirit! Mr. Baldwin and the staff have begun a strong start to the vision of making MHA a place of spiritual social physical and academic learning. We are looking forward to the fall!

    As the new principal at Mile High Academy I am disappointed to see such a derogatory statement by a parent. I will agree that improvement in various areas are needed. My top priority is to restore the integrity of the curriculum and the perception of the faculty. As a professional educator On the whole after visiting all of the classrooms I have found the faculty to be outstanding. They are dedicated to the academic and spiritual growth of their students. If parents alumni or constituents feel that there are areas of improvement please speak directly with me. I am committed to making Mile High Academy a place of learning - spiritually socially physically and academically.
