About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See American Heritage Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

American Heritage Academy Reviews
This school has it plus in dealing with the classics and American history. Unfortunately they do not communicate well with parents and if they decide your child is too challenging they will break down the parent til they withdraw the child. They are not fair in their discipline and lack decent play ground supervision. They like to make examples of children. They take away recess as punishments...therefore the child never gets their wiggles out lending more opportunity for trouble for the child. They do not document their discipline with kids and never give enough or any details when a child is accused of something. Therefore the child cannot be properly helped by the parent. Their is not enough supervision on the playground. Class sizes are too large for the teachers to handle. In kindergarten they watch non educational movies like Peter Pan instead of reading to them. The curriculum is mediocre at best. They are harsh in the way the deal with parents are don't believe in being accountable when they error. They protect the teachers and won't let you get a chance to find out details when their is a problem with your child. They can be very unprofessional...
