School Reviews

This is our 3rd year as part of the Sacred Heart School family. I say family because that is the environment that in which the school portrays. Most of the staff is friendly and professional and all of them care about the students, thats whats most important. The staff implements moral values, religion, and respect as part of the education requirements. I just can''t say enough about the staff and the curriculum. In kindergarten my son was learning how to count money, addition, reading, writing, science, and anatomy. Sacred Heart is incomparable to any public school in the entire area.
