Academy of the Sacred Heart Reviews

Sacred Heart is a hit or miss. It truly depends on the class, my class was extremely cutthroat and catty. But, some classes, everyone is friends. The campus is beautiful, and in a nice area of Uptown. The administration can be difficult to work with when it comes to teacher to student conflicts. It has many traditions that are very nice, and they will give your child catholic courses throughout their time there. Overall, it’s a good school, but the child’s class will determine some of your child’s well being.

Overall, I really like Sacred Heart. I like what it stands for. I like the small, Catholic school environment. I went for thirteen years. As a high school student, I have to admit, my life sucked. The administration, which they currently have, is some of the worst people in charge. When you tell the school about your problems, they definitely don't care. They talk down to you and treat you like it is your fault. They don't understand the amount of stress they put on students and they simply do not care about students.
This a historic, private, catholic school located in a very important and iconic part of the city. The campus is beautiful. However, this school lacks diversity in teachers and students. It is a very tight knit community which makes it wonderful but also hard to relate to the girls who've been there forever. As a minority in the school, it was very stressful for me most days due to the ignorance and insensitive behavior of the teachers and students at times.
