School Reviews

  • Recommended April 18, 2014 - I have gone to sacred heart school all my life, and not only has it prepared me for the future it has made me socially active,friendly and since the environment is so amazing it has made me a kinder and stronger person today. Go shs!! - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended February 09, 2014 - 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. - Posted by Parent
