American Heritage 411

We have read the American Heritage School's detailed explanation, and their amazing timeline of history that they have invented for their school. In the past they have claimed to be the literal successor of Brigham Young Academy and Brigham Young High School. Several years ago, the alumni of Brigham Young High School learned of some of these institutional genealogical claims, and we wrote a warm and positive feature story about it on our website [www.byhigh.org] with links to the AHS website. No story in the history of our website has received so much response. In three months we had an overwhelming response against their version of history. In the light of this response, we removed all mentions of AHS school from our website, with this exception, and we have promised not to mention the school and its claims again. We wish them well and are supportive of AHS, its ideals, moral standards, and its achievements. However, the issue of whether the alumni of BYH recognize AHS as an historical descendant of BYH (we cannot survey our Brigham Young Academy high school alumni because they are all deceased) has long been settled, at least as far as the official BYH alumni website is concerned.
