This is from one of the students views. I think Sacred Heart is a great school! The teachers are nice, and most of them have a BIG sense of humor! In grades 5-8 we do safe science labs, in 4th we did some projects, and I've learned ALOT from this school. I look forward to seeing the school get more students in the future. The only downside is the fact that we ACTUALLY do work! Parents, that's big. I've learned a lot in reading, math, writing, science, Social Studies, and the specials! I totally recommend this school, and that's from a students view.

This school is really not just a school, rather, there is a sense of community and family here. As parents we are very satisfied with the academics, the support, and the extra curricular activities. We transferred out child from a public school to Sacred Heart School, and the only regret we have is for not doing it sooner.

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.
