Sacred Heart School's mission is to educate the whole child in the spirit of the Catholic/Christian tradition of strong family and moral values.
We do this by helping each student fulfill their unique gifts and talents as a child of God.
We celebrate success for all and use intervention strategies to assure that all children's needs are met - in mind, body and spirit.
If a child does not learn the way we teach, we must teach them the way they learn.
One Hundred Percent of our students in grades 4 through 8 have met or exceeded the NYS Assessment standards in all subject areas! We are truly the "Heart of the Highlands"!.
