Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart Reviews

I love the academy so much! It has grown to be my home away from home and will truly miss it once I graduate. The faculty is usually energetic about what they do and love working with the girls. Most of the teachers go out of their way to make sure that you ARE succeeding in their class! There are sooo many incentives that makes the girls grow closer together, that I've made some forever friends here. Not only that, there are endless possibilities for clubs, sports, service, internships, and even traveling that all the girls are open to! The only thing I would say that they are lacking in, is the diversity. While I am happy to say that they've grown, I would like to see MORE progress being made in that aspect. This school challenges, motivates, and is honestly the best thing that has happened to me :) Once you're a SHA girl, you'll always be one!

Sacred Heart is an intriguing school with a confusion reputation. As a college preparatory school, the academics are designed to be rigorous. However, half of the staff is ineffective at teaching the girls let alone dealing with in school problems like illnesses, conflicts, drama, etc. Sacred Heart has gone down the drain.
SHA has definitely been a place where I feel comfortable. Just like many schools, there are pros and cons, however SHA has more to offer than many other schools and I’m grateful for everyone that has helped me through out my high school career. I would completely recommend this school. This school is also willing to change for the benefit of the students.
