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!

The teachers are so helpful and kind! All of the students are so nice and I have made so many friends. I would recommend SHA for anyone who is looking to focus on school. Sacred Heart is very academically strong and there are so many opportunities to challenge yourself inside and outside the classroom.
I loved Sacred Heart and when I look back I have only one complaint. All of my teachers were always ready to stay after school and help me when needed, I could also trust all my teachers which is rare. Staff and peers just want you to do your best and do your best. Really prepared me for college. It really is one big family, everyone is so accepting. The courses are challenging, but not overwhelming. I created friendships people dream of having. My complaint is the administration. It’s sad how the head of school handles issues because she doesn’t even know the students personally but likes to act like she does. She WAS a lawyer and tries to twist everything a student or their parent says if any issues arise. I will not advice anyone I truly care about to attend SHA until she Jennifer Demert steps down. I have heard complaint after complaint about her through my four years at SHA. I can’t believe she is still there.
