    "I graduated from Soaring Heights in 2014 Go Class of 2014 and the ceremony was very good and great but the teacher there are not as good. Every little thing you do you get sent out or get int trouble from picking up your pencil to coughing. I once had a teacher tell me not to raise my hand anymore. The teachers have somewhat good communication with the parents but not as great with the students. Although the school is very strict the education is quality and prepares you somewhat for schools like County Prep or Infinity. It is not yet at the level at where it will prepare you for McNair but they are working on it. My 8th grade year they improved greatly to try and achieve those steps by buying new textbooks. Also the school doesn't really give you a variety of extra activities to do so you get what you get. Overall I think i don't think the school is that bad but its definitely better than all the public schools in JC. I would recommend enrolling here if you are looking to my decent grades ( 84-88) and good friends."

    "Being an alumni from Soaring Heights Charter School, I believe that this is a really great school. The teachers were very understanding during my time there and I had a great relationship with them. Soaring Heights has prepared me very well while I entered high school two years ago. Although students may complain about how they discipline their students too much, I believe that it's because they just want to have a controlled atmosphere. With better funding, I think that Soaring Heights would be the best school in the area."

    "This school is ok. I have been here for 2 years so far. The teachers are nice and discipline you for the sake of your future (im not saying they discipline you a lot, they do it if you get in trouble). THEY HAVE A WIDE VARIETY OF SECEARATY CAMERAS ALOVER THE SCHOOL TO KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE. This is one of the best schools to go to. WHY? Because you can get excepted into ferris or even better, MCNAIR HIGH SCHOOL. We cant talk at lunch though. but SO WHAT? We get to talk at recess (i think 20-25 minutes). This school might be a little strict bu PARENTS, IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILD(ren) TO GO TO A GOOD HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE, THIS IS THE RIGHT SCHOOL FOR YOU!!!"

    "I am currently planning on removing my child from this school. I am a former homeschooling mother and decided that the public schools might be a little too populous for my children so I sought smaller classrooms and more organized framework. Once my children were accepted into Soaring Heights I thought all would be well. My children were ages 13 and 8 at the time. My thirteen year old was having the hardest time adjusting and the school was not very accomodating. My third grader was fairing a little better but not much. My niece and nephew were attending the school once and never had a favorable review of this dictatorial type of school and were more than happy to be attending other schools now. My son graduated and was relieved to be gone. Now it is my daughter's turn. I would much rather a less restrictive school where the teacher's do not take it personal if the child has to miss days for an illness or is two seconds late. BTW, the teachers and administration can be very standoffish and moody. The saving grace of the school is Mrs. Zurick. Thiis woman seems to be clueless though as to the daily operation of how her staff regards and treats the children and parents."

    "I HAVE 3 BOYS 2 OF THEM ARE IN HIGHSCHOOL NOW, AND MY YOUNGEST WITCH IS 9 YEARS OLD STILL IN SHCS 4TH GRADE ... THIS IS A VERY PROMISING SCHOOL TO ALL OUR CHILDREN... THE TEACHERS FACULTY MEMBERS ARE REALLY DEDICATED TO THEIR STUDENT TO MEET THEIR HIGHEST STANDARD OF EDUCATION. AND IT'S PROVEN I HAVE 2 CHILDREN IN HIGHSCHOOL AND IS NOW IN #1 SCHOOL IN NJ MCNAIR ACADEMIC HIGHSCHOOL. AND I WANT TO THANK SOARING HEIGHTS FOR THIS."
