    "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."

    "The teachers in that school are too strict. I've had friends who have transferred out of this school because the teachers treat you like little soldiers in the army 'yelling' at us all the time. The only good thing is that the school is small."

    "I used to attend this school. I made a couple of friends, I passed my classes, and got along with the teachers. The policies however are brought to an extreme that I have never seen before. A school needs strictness yes, but not the amount that SHCS does. I couldn't have fun here, I couldn't talk during lunch, I got detention for things like throwing out a piece of garbage. these policies were ridiculous, maybe they have changed since I attended there but if they haven't, not the greatest school. The academics also served me an issue. I was a great student there, once I left, I found difficulty in all of my classes, the academics taught here simply were not enough, I was constantly lost because what I learned here was so far behind, I was just lost. Not the greatest school, not the worst."
