Sacred Heart is a wonderful school. My boys are learning and progressing well academically while learning to be good citizens of the world. Sister Danielle and the entire faculty and staff treat the students with respect and kindness and their rapport with the children show. Sacred Heart provides my boys with comfort and the feeling of being a part of a family so they can learn and flourish without worrying about other distractions in life.

SHS is unique in having Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary working and teaching throughout the school. They provide a model for teachers, staff and students alike to maintain an atmosphere of hospitality and commitment. Students are taught notions such as gratitude, service and respect along with testable skill areas of education. The atmosphere of civilized decency and the support of academic acheivement is worth far more than one could pay with tuition. All the same, every effort is made to assist families financially to allow enrollment of interested students.
