Academic Overview(Grades 9 - 12)
At our high school level, emphasis is placed on college preparation with required course offerings in English, math, social studies, history, science, foreign languages, the arts, computer education and physical education. At the high school level, there is an added emphasis on higher level thinking skills, and students are challenged by required research, speech and writing assignments in all subject areas. Technology is included in all subject areas.
American Heritage boasts an extensive selection of almost 300 course offerings. Courses vary from college prep, honors and 24 advance placement courses. American Heritage's preprofessional programs (pre med, pre law, biomedical engineering and engineering) offer unique courses that are only taught by Doctors, Attorneys or Engineers.
Communication with parents and students is essential. The school's web portal provides daily access to individual student grades, and written progress reports are sent home every three weeks. Teachers maintain web pages that display class information ranging from daily homework assignments to explanation of long term projects.
