With a Most Sacred Heart of Jesus School education your child will be prepared to meet the challenges of life and to respond to the needs of the present and future community.
We, at the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus School Community, in cooperation with the parents, who are the primary educators, endeavor to recognize the full human potential of each child.
By developing his/her spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, physical and social needs, we strive to prepare each child to meet the challenges of life and to respond to the needs of the present and future community.
Our purpose, religiously, is to create an atmosphere where the teachings of Christ Jesus are integrated into the daily lives and activities of our school children.
Each day is filled with the wonders of learning in the context of Faith.
Through religious education, we assist students in coming to know Jesus in a personal way and in developing a loving relationship with Him.
The outgrowth of this relationship is love, peace, and hope within the individual student and the school community.
Our academic program is intended to create a life-long love of learning and a quest for excellence.
Our main thrust is to give each child a strong foundation, ranging from mastering basic skills to applying independent higher level thinking skills and problem solving, on which to build future academic achievement.
Students at Most Sacred Heart of Jesus School are taught respect for self and others, honesty, and trustworthiness.
