Coming from private schools I was skeptical for a good bit. Although I still don't like the red tape and hoops you have to jump through to get some things done that would. E much more simple in a private school, I can't say enough about the teachers and administration at Heritage. My. Hold is SO well loved and although I''m not sure the education is as I wish it were, it's a viable and wonderful alternative for those of us who can't finance private education. The class size is too big with 21 students in my child's kindergarten class and no assistant but that's to be expected. They really work hard to love the children individually and nurture their individual strengths and Dr. Allen as principal, along with Dr. Johnson are fabulous. Highly recommend overall!
