I was looking for a school that embraces the whole child and views them as an individual. My partner wanted a school that allows children to be children, to pursue their imagination and to participate in free play. HEI Schools hit all the marks for both of us.

My child is now willing to actively participate, observe, try things on his own and develop his sense of curiosity. In just the first three months at HEI Schools, he has grown psychologically, personally and intellectually.
