The Heights School Reviews

Boys are taught to be true gentlemen who take pride in their hard work and ethics.
This school is a great fit for a boy coming from a Catholic Archdiocese school.
At The Heights, boys have to be on their feet! They have to use paper organizers, advocate for themselves, rely on memory and organizational skills.
These methodologies really make the boys stronger academically and socially. They learn to support each other and talk to teachers openly.
The Heights has a welcoming community with many families from a latino or Spanish background. My son is surrounded by boys who breath Soccer and play several other sports throughout the year. Perfect for those families who value discipline, having clear, tough consequences, and most importantly, having teachers who really care about their students and provide guidance on a daily basis.

The community and spirit at the Heights is amazing. From several annual festival days full of tradition and athletics, to phenomenal spirit supporting our sports team, there is a great sense of family. The teachers are great at personal mentoring with students and prepare students well for the APs and college, without sacrificing rigor in the liberal arts and academic and personal development. One student received a perfect score on the AP Microeconomics exam, having been prepared so well in the school's courses, which go beyond what is sufficient. I would highly recommend and my friendships forged there still remain.
Let us walk the way, boys!
The Heights was a key part of my education. The things that I learned that and they bonds that I made will stick with me forever. It is a very special place. However, it is not a place for everyone. If you are considering The Heights for your son, I highly encourage you attend the open house and schedule a shadow day to get a look for yourself. The teachers are qualified and really care about the success of each student. I would not be where I am today without The Heights.
