We have been beyond pleased with the education our son is receiving at Sacred Heart. He is challenged academically each day and has built great friendships.

This is an amazing school and community! My children are well educated, have made really good, lifelong friends, and the new Principal is amazing. I've been very impressed with the academics and what my children are learning, but even MORE impressed with WHO they are becoming as faith-filled responsible citizens. By the time they graduate, they'll be more than ready for high school and beyond. If you want a excellent education in a safe, friendly community, this is the place.
