    Heritage Christian School is a hidden gem in the Iowa City/Coralville/North Liberty area. The school is staffed with caring and committed teachers who are certified in their subject areas and demonstrate a passion for teaching that is grounded on the cornerstone of God's word. The administration is committed to excellence in everything they do and seek to make Heritage not just the area's best Christian school but THE best school. Heritage students excel in state (Iowa Assessment) and national standardized testing (ACT Explore for 8th graders) consistently outperforming their peers in other local schools. Class sizes are capped to make sure the teacher/student ratio leads to excellence in teaching and learning. More than anything the Christ-centered focus of everything the school does - from classroom instruction to extra-curricular programs (e.g. Band Sports Choral Music etc) and community events grounds students in God's word as the source of all learning. If you're looking for a sound Christian eduction Heritage Christian School is by far the areas best choice.

    I've been involved with Heritage for over a decade and I couldn't be more proud to be associated with an organization that meets its mission statement as superbly as it. The new $3.5 million facility is merely an outward expression of the quality within as teachers and staff partner with parents to provide a Christ-centered and academically challenging education. Enrollment has nearly doubled in seven years (now in the 190's) because of excellence. I've watched numerous Heritage students go on to become Valedictorian Homecoming royalty remarkable at the theatre arts etc. during the past decade as students enter the local public high schools. The front office staff are the utmost professionals and the administrator is outstanding. Class caps are strictly held in check to no more than 24 students per class which includes an aide! Small classes where parents know the teachers and the other's amazing and the way it should be.

    Deciding where to send our children to school was a big decision. After hearing so many positive responses about Heritage Christian School from other parents we decided to enroll our oldest in Kindergarten at Heritage. Within the first few months we knew we had made the right decision. We saw tremendous growth spiritually academically and socially. Six years later all of our children attend Heritage and get to experience a Christ-centered education that has exceeded our expectations.

    Communication by the administration is poor. They rarely updated the web page calendar. When you ask for information it s always met with rolling eyes and reference to the school handbook. The handbook is outdated. After care costs $5 per minute if you do not enlist in the mega $$$ monthly program and when you use it you get the rolling eyes there too. FRUSTRATED.

    We have had children at this school for the past four years. The teachers administrator staff and Board truly live out their mission of being Christ-centered. We have been so impressed at the high standard of academics as well as the "everyday" learning that our children have received. We would HIGHLY recommend this school if you are looking for a quality Christ-centered education for your children.

    As a grandparent I offer my highest endorsement of Heritage. They have been loving and supporting for both our grandson and his parents (our daughter and son in law). Our grandson has grown academically and in character since starting at Heritage.

    Well I'm not a parent but I did go to Heritage and I really liked it. It has a good foundation and you can tell that God is the focus.

    I love this school! The potential for parental involvement is great. The teachers are loving and most importantly are allowed to pray with my child. The quality of education is very high. Consider Heritage Christian School!
