School Notes

  • Sacred Heart School is a Catholic, parish elementary school committed to equipping students to meet the academic, social and technological demands of the 21stCentury.  We recognize and develop the innate God given talents of each individual student. In order to meet those demands we prepare SHS students with the resources necessary to develop the skills required to succeed and thrive in an ever-changing global and technological world. SHS creates a faith filled learning environment, where each student learns their role and the responsibilities of being a "good steward to the world and its citizens," through service, good works and prayer.  The SHS faculty and staff join with parents to assist students in developing the skills to become independent and self-sufficient adults who will succeed and contribute responsibly in a fast paced, technological and global community.

My son moved to Sacred Heart School for 5th grade. In just half of the year, he had achieved over a year of growth in both Reading and Math. He's engaged in lots of school activities like Robotics & Drumming. The culture has been very supportive and welcoming. In addition, the curriculum itself it cutting edge and aligned with what children need to know in today's environment with a strong focus on STEM.

A great school, especially for the price. My son, and daughter are now in the 3rd and 4th grade at Sacred Heart and they are very happy. They love going to school and at home they are very thoughtful about the world around them, asking questions both about how things work and religious ones that sometimes shock me they come up with a certain question. The influence of their education is obvious to anyone who speak to them. The school keeps communication open with parents, providing back to school nights and other events to keep you in the loop as well as notices. I am very excited about their new STEAM initiatives [STEM and the Arts] and recommend Sacred heart highly best school in the state.

Sacred Heart School is a true example of what it means to DREAM BIG! As proud alumni of the school, I can honestly say that this school molded me into the person I am today. Every teacher encouraged and challenged me to be better than the student I was yesterday. They made sure to pay attention to both my strengths and weaknesses in order to make me better academically and personally. It was through this school that I was able to be ahead of my peers in high school and carry that confidence into college. Outside of academics, I had the opportunity to participate in extracurriculars such as ballet, dance, skating, double dutch club, and so much more. I found my love for the arts and communicating with friends. This is the perfect school to turn your child into a scholar and into someone who is confident both academically and internally. I would recommend this school to any parent/child. Sacred Heart knows how to help anyone DREAM BIG.

Kind deeds, vital minds; a mantra that truly comes to life within the walls of SHS. It was through their academic environment that my love of learning was initially fostered. SHS gave me the skills and discipline that made me an excellent student throughout high school and later college. As a non-catholic alumna, I truly feel as though the lessons I learned here both academic and about life have molded me into the person I am today. Principal Haldimann instilled in my graduating class the moral foundation that would allow us to become confident, well accomplished, and altruistic members of society. The wide range of programs offered allowed me to be a well-rounded child. I had the opportunity to explore activities such as music, sports, and visual arts; some of which would develop into hobbies later in life. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to give their child a strong foundation for success.
