16:1

The most important emphasis of the mission-minded faculty is developing character in young people who are focused on

Christ-centered, life-long learning at the highest levels in an environment where the student-to-teacher ratio averages

less than 16:1.

FACULTY AND STAFF The faculty of Heritage School is one of the finest of schools in the southwest Texas region. The quality and dedication of the entire faculty and staff is remarkable.
