Community Health Academy of the Heights as a school prioritizes the input from the community and recognizes that it takes a village to raise a child. We have facilities for parents to come in and share their thoughts or work on projects on the school's behalf. Our students have a wide variety of resources. We have a mental and physical health clinic available as well as a partnership with C.L.O.T.H, a community based nonprofit organization, that provides housing, counseling, food, work opportunities and more for the students and their families. The small classrooms and one on one attention from teachers allow for students to make close relationships and grow more from their advice and feedback.

My experience at Community Health Academy of the Heights has been wonderful. I've made friendships that are going to last a lifetime and teachers that have inspired me to be successful and fight for what is right. The teachers at Community Health Academy of the Heights are very motivational and want what's best for their students. The extracurricular activities are fun and entertaining. I've been in a lot of them and loved each of them.
Here in CHAH everyone is extremely genuine and will do almost anything to help you succeed. This is a very rigorous school because passing is an 80% but that doesn't take away from how great coming here is. The atmosphere here is very fast-paced and professional. While it may be easy to get off-track, the team you have here behind you will be very happy to get you back and succeeding.
