I have put three boys through school at Heber Springs starting with Elementary through High School with my baby being in 9th grade this year. I have nothing but good things to say about the school. They have awesome academic programs, after school help, Music dept is wonderful, the facilities are in good shape and improving all the time, and the spirit of the parents at this school is amazing. The turn out for football games is wonderful.
