    My child has been in this school since Kindergarten and we could not be happier with the education she has received. The teachers are genuinely interested in my child's academic progress and development. I drop off my child every morning knowing she is in a safe and nurturing environment. I would however like to see the owner of the school invest some money in installing fans in the outside lunch areas and to expand the activities center in the back of school to accommodate more people during school events and activities. I would also like to see more art history being taught during art classes. Overall I am extremely happy with the school teachers and administration. We just love it!

    The Heritage is wonderful. The teachers are very dedicated and the class size is small. The school is a safe environment because everyone knows each other and the kids become like family. The principal is very approachable and knows you and your child by name. He is very involved with every classroom. I drop off my child every morning very content that I know he is in great hands.

    Best kept secret! This school is amazing. Small classes avg class size is 15! Advanced curriculum pre k. 3 can write their name. Kindergartners are composing paragraphs. And they get a full hour of intensive Spanish everyday. Teachers are caring and accessible. Parents are always welcome

    I have been a parent here for two years and have seen such a decrease in the level of attention my child receives. The primary grade teachers are overworked and the teacher/student ratio is horrible for what the school charges. An assistant teacher should be mandatory for all primary grades. Parents are not permitted without appointments to assess the child's learning environment. Please beware and check out other schools in the area before you pay the enrollment fees.

    Amazing school . I just attended two great events last week. The school is very organized. Teachers are splendid. It is a little bit expensive but it is worth it. This kind of school is difficult to find . Education is an investment that lasts for ever .

    My wife and I are very happy with the school. Teachers are real good and the program is outstanding. There are only 20 children per classroom. Our son is learning two languages and is very happy. We are investing our money in a great education for our son. We definitely recommend Heritage.

    The whole school puts up a front for the parents. Teachers are sweet but the academics are not great. Tuition is extremely high for my child to go there past daycare would educate my child more for half the pay. Would not recommend this school!

    It is rare to find a small family-friendly accreditted school that values a bilingual multicultural and challenging education for children. As a Heritage parent for the past five years and a teacher who has taught in several schools I can say the way teachers have high expectations of their students and yet take care of them as they progress through the years is wonderful. For those of us who value keeping two languages it is one of the best schools around. Compared to others parent initiatives and input are valued as an inherent part of the school community. Staff members are all certified and take their time to get to know students' strangths and needs. Focus on fine arts music academic and extra-curricular competitions technology shows and P.E. provide a well-rounded education for students who are exposed to a variety of educational opportunities since the young age of three! Excellent!
