Alma Heights Christian School Reviews

I have a sophomore, an 8th grader, and a 5th grader. They have all attended since kindergarten. They love it! Acedemically they are excelling. My oldest was struggling and the teachers noticed and helped get him back on track immediately. No one falls between the cracks. The lack of bullying makes so refreshing. It sounds impossible, but you would just have to come to the campus and experience it. Alma Heights is really different than others schools. You can't put a price on your child's safety. When I am there I can't believe the respect from the children. The high school students make eye contact with adults and say"Good morning ". They don't have such an attitude like I've seen when visiting other schools.

I attended Alma Heights from freshman to senior year. I had a great experience attending this school. One of my favorite times of the year was fall retreat. Also, I made great friends throughout my 4 years of attendance. The teachers are great. They really care about the students. I don't think you ever find a high school where students actually have a good relationship with their teachers. For those looking for a good high school, Alma Heights is a great choice!
K through 8th grade was a great experience for my child. The school teaches the kids to be independent thinkers and is very Christ centered, which is consistent with our family believes. However, the school is lacking in providing adequate counseling for the kids, focuses too much on the uniform requirements, and is out pricing itself out of the demographics. The school is small and they need to bring down the prices to allow for diversity of families to enroll. Also, the school needs better music and extra curricular opportunities for grammar and junior high school.
