When you choose a school fory our child, ou want to ensure they'll be happy and successful there. Here are parent and student reviews of Heritage Academy of Learning Excellence in Ottawa, Ontario.
School Review from Parent of Grade 5 Student
My daughter is in grade 5 at Heritage Academy having moved there last year as she was really struggling and was being bullied. After the second day she told me she felt like she’d “come home”- she felt so comfortable and she was like everyone else. She is very intelligent, but also very dyslexic and in the past she has felt like she either gets no help or is treated like she is stupid. She loves Heritage and her confidence and standard of work improved immediately! She now gets 20 spelling words correct with no help from me and they aren’t all simple either. The best thing is no more homework battles!
My other daughter is also dyslexic and has been really struggling. I was initially reluctant to move her as she has so many friends at her school. Anyway, I have been so delighted with the school and it is such a pleasure to see my daughter happy and making progress, that I am moving my other daughter into grade 3 at Heritage.
If you have reached the stage of even thinking about it, your child probably needs it … I know it takes a lot to make the move, but seeing the children relaxed and happy in a learning environment that truly looks after their needs whilst recognising their intelligence is wonderful! I am a teacher myself and I know that in most classroom situations we have no way of really meeting the needs of bright children with dyslexia or some other form of specific learning disability. This affects their self esteem. I was totally amazed at the difference in my daughter in only a few days when she felt valued, respected and not alone!
Heritage Academy Review from Parent of Grade 9 Student
Our son, has just completed his first semester of high school at Heritage Academy. During this timewe have immediately noticed a huge improvement in his understanding of his work assignments. Consequently, he has reacted very positively and is learning his subjects with great enthusiasm.
Besides learning and understanding his school work he is also enjoying a very positive social life at Heritage Academy. We attribute this to the very positive school culture.
We are deeply grateful and appreciative toHeritageAcademyfor the great work and unabated effort offered to our son. We only wish we had discovered Heritage Academy earlier.
To those parents who are considering sending their children to Heritage Academy please rest assured that your kids will be receiving the best education that can be delivered. The teachers and staff members at Heritage Academyare courteous, respectful, understanding and extremely professional. We are truly pleased and grateful to everyone at Heritage Academy.
Heritage Academy Review from Parent of Grade 11 Student
My son is going to be going into Grade 11 at Heritage and he started there in Grade 9.
It has been our experience that the school and teachers are totally dedicated to the students and truly care about the progress of each and every student. The principal and staff are always available and responsive to any questions or concerns. My son is not all that interested in school (he is 16) but this past year the teachers and principal worked together with him to ensure that he passed his year – they spent extra hours with him after school and before school to assist him with projects and completion of same. The small class size and enriched program, combined with the excellent staff, makes for a great school.
