I am just about finished with my first year at Sacred Heart High School and I couldn't be happier. I was naturally very nervous in September but throughout the year, I've had nothing but positive and enjoyable experiences thanks to my teachers and the new principal Ms. DeCecco. I also have a great group of friends. This school is like my second home and second family. I'm grateful for a school where I feel happy to be.
