Please make sure your child is dropped off to school every day and on on-time.

Global Heights Academy has made arrangements with software and major publishers to ensure all our students have legal access to the resources necessary to complete their work at school and at home. Supplies lists are sent home at the beginning of the school year for all grades. Please check with your child’s teacher for more information.
