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 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 very intelligent folk and 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. The Heights is academically and physically rigorous and has the habit of developing strong bonds of friendship. However, the school could use a better diversity rate as over 80% of their students are Caucasian. The campus has no credible security and club involvement in the school is very poor, partially due to the rigor of the academic work already. Besides the minor flaws, the Heights is a great school for boys.
Confucius once said "Tell me and I will forget, show me and I may remember; involve me and I will understand". The Heights School aims to prepare kids for life, but also make sure they enjoy life. Taking into account the children's different stages of life, The Heights does a fine job of prepping them in their respected stage. The lower schoolers are given four breaks during the day to go outside to run and play, the middle schoolers are in a transitional stage in which they play and study, and the high schoolers are immersed with work and learning. To further prepare students, there is a whole week called Crescite week were all high schoolers choose a trip, abroad or local, were the boys can experience the world, but most importantly grow as a person. Confucius ought to be proud of The Heights, they really do try to involve the kids.
