    American Heritage is by far the best school in the state. This is currently my second year and I have no complaints. The teachers are fantastic and are always so kind. The curriculum is interactive and fascinating, so it's not boring when I walk into class. The amount of extracurriculars offered is insane. There's so many amazing clubs to choose from! The Pre-Medical program has so many opportunities to volunteer and learn from doctors in South Florida. Plus, the campus is beautiful. I love Heritage so much and would recommend it to anyone.

    The school is superior to every other school in the entire South Eastern United States. Heritage provides the most extensive extracurricular programs in Florida with nationally recognized programs such as their Math Competition, Model UN, Science Research, and Robotics programs plus even more. Furthermore, the sports programs for basketball, soccer, football, and more are also really good, hence, the multitude of state/local championships that the school has. As a student, it can be stressful since all of the students are clearly top-notch kids that are very smart; however, the benefits from going to the school far outweigh the stress and hard work that comes with it. Moreover, if you look at any other school in competitions such as Science Bowl, Quiz Bowl, MUN, Mu Alpha Theta, and more, Heritage consistently receives top placing, while many of the "acclaimed" schools such as Pine Crest and Ransom Everglades don't even participate or they cannot even compare to Heritage.
    American Heritage is one of the most academically rigorous institutions and very much functions as a business. The scholarship model allows the school to receive many awards while bringing in other new students. In this way, it fails many students on a mental health level. There is very little support in place for the many students who suffer from anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses that are often incurred by the competitive nature of the school's academics. However, this school still provides the best education around and offers students opportunities in both sports and the arts that they would never be able to find elsewhere.
