I love the community and sense of family that any student attending has. You really feel like you mean something and that you're loved, especially by the staff. You know they want you to succeed. Not only that, you know that both staff and students have your back and look out for you. We're all one big family. I love that.

All of the teachers at the American Heritage Academy are knowledgeable and helpful! They stay after class to help me with a subject or topic that I do not fully understand. They also give us a reasonable amount of work to do. There is not too much that we cannot keep up with it, but it still challenges us to put in the effort to get a good grade in the class.
The curriculum at our school is very good! And since AHA is so small it allows the students to connect more. We are not just friends, but a close family, and I really like that about our school! However, I believe that the athletics and other after school activities need to be upgraded.
