Soaring Heights was the best experience that could be given to a student both academically and socially. Once you get to high school you sill notice that most of the lesson plans were already taught by Soaring Heights, making it very preparatory. It's small atmosphere helps establish a strong healthy bond amongst the peers and teachers and the strict environment helps students follow regulations and procedures. A majority of the students are very well behaved because of the strict environment and personally I have become a disciplined individual who is eager to learn. All my appreciation goes to Soaring Heights and I wish I could go back because only now can I truly appreciate it.

When I used to attend this school, it was strict beyond belief, I am not sure if it still is because I no longer keep any contact with it but if it still is, the policies are unbelievable and the kids have no ability to have fun majority of the time. The academics were not the greatest either, I found myself lost in all of my classes after attending this school due to the lack of academic procedures. Unless you want your child to be full on academics (not the best although) then I do not recommend this school unless the system has changed through these years of my absence.
