SHS is great school for our son. The staff is amazing, his teachers have always been so nice and skilled. I love the atmosphere the school brings. Everyone is so positive. All the children get along so well, and help one another. I love this school and so happy my son attends this school.

When my husband and I were discussing the education of our son we felt that sending him to Sacred Heart was the only way to go. They not only teach our son the knowledge he needs to succeed but the values we believe our essential to his growth as a human being. Sacred Heart offers music every day with kids learning keyboard skills starting in kindergarten and then playing strings and band in the upper grades. They also offer PE classes daily and art once a week. Academically Sacred Heart students excel once they move on to the middle school and into their high school years. The school utilizes today's technology to assist in improving students math and reading skills. Students have access to both ST Math/Jiji and Lexia Reading Core programs at school and at home. Sacred Heart School is a close knit community where the teachers and staff truly care for the students and do all they can to help the students achieve their best.

Sacred Heart is an excellent school. Our family has had a wonderful experience at both the grade school and preschool. The teachers, administrators and staff are very supportive of the students and their families. We feel confident they are providing our children with an excellent education in a warm, caring and nurturing environment. The students receive a well rounded education including music and PE daily and art once a week. We have been very impressed with how the older students help the younger ones. There are many opportunities for family participation. Interacting with other parents and the staff make us truly feel like part of the Sacred Heart family. Sacred Heart has been an excellent choice for our children.

Sacred Heart School is the best kept secret in this area! Our students come from the Chase County area, Burlington, Allen, and many throughout the Emporia area and Lyon County area. The student education is outstanding and parent support is fabulous. If you are looking for a welcoming new school community, please contact Sacred Heart School at 620-343-7394. We are a Kindergarten through grade 6 school, with daycare and pre-school on site, as well. You can view testimonials on our school website. Carpooling is available from all areas.

We were first introduced to Sacred Heart School through the preschool program. We were so impressed with the school at that time, we knew SHS was the right choice for grade school as well. We love the small class size and personal attention the students receive. The staff and teachers really make a point to get to know the families and children well. SHS has a strong academic foundation as well as an impressive music program where students are exposed to many instruments including keyboarding beginning in Kindergarten. The Christian values taught at SHS are particularly evident by the kindness and respect I see children showing one another. We are thrilled to see our child thriving academically & socially and know that Sacred Heart School has a great deal to do with that success.

SHS is a great school for our child. The teachers are quite skilled and sincerely care for the kids and their well-being, as if they were their own children. I''m also glad that music is a part of the curriculum for all grades. I''m glad we found this family environment for our child to learn in.
