About Us

Our Faculty & Staff

The faculty and staff of Heritage Oak School are committed to excellence in education from a Biblical worldview. As mentors to young students, they understand the great responsibility of the classroom teacher to shine as an example of Christ in all areas of life, to love and nurture each individual as God has gifted them, and to help students grasp even the most diffcult of concepts. We hope their stories give you a glimpse into what awaits your child at Heritage Oak School.
