We’ve had children at American Heritage School for nine years and between all of our children- we’ve had experience in every grade at the school. All of our children have had positive experiences in what should’ve been a socially awkward and difficult stage of their adolescent lives. Each of our children are unique and have been appreciated for whatever strengths and talents they pursue. Whether my children have been interested in leadership, academics, robotics, drama, music, or sports-American Heritage offers something for everybody and your child can participate in whatever they’d like. The academics are appropriately difficult and have prepared my recent graduate for the rigors and academically challenging environment of college. Moving to Utah From Chicago, we were concerned about the ethnic diversity in Utah County. We were pleasantly surprised that our children are exposed to an array of cultures and even religions because of the exchange students who come to American Heritage School. American Heritage creates an open and honest environment where students trust their teachers and peers enough to have real life, stimulating conversations about politics, social issues and religious issues. Teachers encourage students to study both sides of the issues and then decide for themselves how they feel about each topic. In their discussions, because American Heritage is a private school, they don’t have to avoid religion, but weave the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints into their discussions. It really gives these youth an understanding of where they personally stand on these issues as well as an understanding of where those with a different opinion are coming from. American Heritage does an excellent job of instilling a love of God and Country. My children have a wonderful understanding of American History and they are proud to be citizens of this great country. The administration is always open to feedback and genuinely wants to keep improving in all areas as a school. Take a tour of the school and you will immediately feel the spirit that permeates within. Children are respectful of others, teachers genuinely love and want what is best for their students. When the school year is over, their love for my child does not end. It is very common for my children’s teachers to ask about the students they previously had in years past and keep up on their progress. I feel like each of my children have dozens of mentors who love and look after them! American Heritage School truly is a huge part of “the village” that is helping me raise my children and I am grateful for the opportunity that our family has had to partake of the blessings which this school is providing!
