Academy of the Sacred Heart Reviews
Horrible experience for our 2 girls. They started there in pre school and left in 8th grade. Would never ever recommend this school to anyone. If you are willing to pay this tuition, then send your children to Cranbrook or Detroit Country Day School. We did and our girls are amazing students and the kids at both these schools are wonderful.
The Academy of the Sacred Heart is a private school in a very nice location in Bloomfield Hills. They have a compact student body, and as a result, everyone is very involved in the educational experience. The teachers are willing to help students that need additional assistance and the facility is generally clean and inviting.
I absolutely love Academy of the Sacred Heart! It is a small community and it offers so many opportunities for students to volunteer in the community. We take annual mission trips across the world that exposes us the many people, cultures and traditions. I love the block schedule of classes. It is preparing me for college. The school offers a great way of how technology is integrated into our curriculum. Our teachers care about our education and they ensure that we get the most out of their classes. They make themselves available to all students. I would love for the school to be exposed to a more diverse student population and I believe that the school is striving towards that goal. There are many opportunities that we serve in the community by participating in our bi-weekly service appointments. I have had the opportunity to work in soup kitchens where I am feeding the hungry. Serving m community is a great aspiration for me and I love the opportunity.
Academy of the Sacred Heart has been an amazing experience and opportunity for our daughter. She was previously at another private school and we have noticed significant changes since she started of ASH. Our daughter is excited about learning again and looks forward to school. The teachers and staff are exceptional- caring and hard working.
I transferred into Sacred Heart in the 7th Grade and have amazing opportunities because of this school. I have traveled the world and participated in service experiences. The teachers are very involved with the students. Because it is such a small school, the students build relationships with their teachers and the teachers want the students to succeed. Going to Sacred Heart has opened many doors for me and I am incredibly grateful for the chance to go there.
I have attended the academy of the sacred heart since I was a preschooler. I will finish my senior year in June. The academy prepared me to be independent in many ways. You travel away from your home without parents beginning g in fourth grade. They teach you service at a young age too. They do a great job teaching you about the wider world. I feel confident about continuing my education out of state because they prepared me so well. The education was hard but not beyond my capabilities. They have prepared me for higher education.
The Upper School gives great opportunities beyond the classroom. Although the administration needs some work, the faculty is an amazing group and I was lucky to have them as teachers and friends.
The small school atmosphere creates a close, loving community which becomes your home. The individual attention from teachers in class enables students to excel in academics.
I came to this school in sixth grade and t was the best decision I have ever made. I love the atmosphere and how welcoming the community is. I am best friedns with all 28 of my classmates, and that is something not a lot of people can say. I hihgly reccommend this middle/high school.
My experience is fair. That's why I'm moving to another school after staying for 1 year.
The school lunch is great. I hope there is organic option available though.
My daughter is in 3rd grade (there is 1 3rd grade classroom here.) She is new this year and she was struggling at the biginning for a few months trying to fit in. She didn't have any friends to pair up with when the teachers asked them to for some activities. She came home crying often because she was left out all the time. I was mad because this not supposed to happen. The teachers needed to help and assigned the pair for the students. But from what I have know, they still did ask the students to pair up by themselves although I emailed and actually went in to talk with the teachers. My daughter is okay now because she finally has her best friend to pair up with. Otherwise, she might have to cry all the way through 3rd grade.
All around, I felt very safe there.
The extracurricular experiences at this school are what you make of the them. If you choose to have a fun and positive attitude, you will definitely enjoy yourself.
Academy of the Sacred Heart is an amazing school. It is so hard to put into words what the community there is like; you'll have to experience the greatness for yourself.
All the teachers are willing to provide help when you need it. Don't be afraid to contact a teacher to tell them that you need help; they want you to succeed just as much as you want to!
It's pretty much good, except if you've been here all your life you get away with doing anything.
It's overall a good learning atmosphere, but socially it can get very cliquey.
All the teachers really care and go above and beyond to ensure everyone gets the information.
