IMPORTANT UPDATES

American Heritage will start school on September 8 with our planned 4+1 schedule, which is regular sessions, Monday through Thursday and the Virtual Family Flex Fridays, where kids will be working from home (see note above).

The excitement about returning to school comes with some uncertainty as the Pandemic continues.  We are closely monitoring local community spread and public health conditions.  We will be implementing a number of health and safety measures to help keep our students, staff, and patrons safe at school.  We also have a series of contingencies in the event that we are forced to conduct school with ALTERNATING DAY SCHEDULES to help with social distancing, or even an ALL VIRTUAL delivery of instruction.

Frequently Asked Questions

American Heritage plans to re-open Tuesday, September 8, 2020 with our new 4+1 Schedule, with 4 days in person and 1 Family Flex Day every Friday.  That means Fridays are virtual days, with all grades working from home.  Friday assignments will be given to students on the prior Monday, giving them the whole week to ask question, prepare, and to even get the work done ahead of time.  We will be encouraging American Heritage themed, family activities as homework for Fridays, in addition to a math and reading/language lesson.

American Heritage will no longer have late-start Mondays.  With a Change to District 91's late start schedule, American Heritage has changed its schedule to conform to our busing contract with District 91.  That means no late start Mondays.  School will begin at 8:30 am, Monday through Thursday, with virtual Fridays (kids work from home on Fridays).

Parents who simply want to have their students enroll in our virtual-only program for the Fall should click here by August 10 to enroll in our Virtual Session.  Students in grades 6-12 who elect to go online-only will take all classes through IDLA.  Contact Mr. Rose for more information:  roses@ahcspatriots.us.

AGENDA - AMENDED

Our vision and mission is to

"Create Patriotic, Educated Leaders"

Our Curriculum

Building Americans

E.D. Hirsch wrote in his book, In The Making of Americans, that there are two central reasons for public education in America:  (1) to create social mobility, allowing bright, hard-working students of all backgrounds to have the opportunity of the American dream; and (2) to create social cohesion, binding children of diverse economic, racial, and ethnic backgrounds into citizens of a single nation. 

We celebrate the diversity of cultural backgrounds that have been brought together into the great American melting pot; and we strive to focus on the uniquely American ideals, history, culture, and Constitutional principals that bind us together as a nation. 

Guided by this Vision, our Board of Directors and staff take great care to research and utilize curricular materials that will afford our students the greatest possible educational advantage. All of the curriculum and materials used comply with content standards established by the Idaho State Department of Education.
