Convent of the Sacred Heart Reviews

40 reviews

When I first visited Sacred Heart, the girls seemed friendly, modest and well behaved, but in reality they are spoiled brats most of the time. PLEASE CONSIDER THIS BEFORE APPLYING TO SACRED HEART! Sacred Heart is overall an okay school. The students care to get good grades, and most of the time, they try hard. Being new in the middle school, what annoys me most is that the snobbish girls have something against new students and teachers. I feel very excluded at times, and I know that new teachers feel this way too among their fellow colleagues. Although it may seem very catholic from the outside, with a chapel and everything, it is NOT truly catholic! The girls may be from catholic families, but their bratty, spoiled attitude is not what it means to be catholic!

Sacred Heart is an academically challenging school. Advanced classes and a rigorous curriculum challenge the students and teaches them how to work hard. The school and the faculty are always pushing their students to reach their full potential. Sacred Heart educates the full person allowing their students to not only become intellectuals but also well rounded individuals and leaders. I have never met a more dedicated faculty and administration; the faculty at Sacred Heart truly care for their students and want to see them succeed. The students at Sacred Heart embody the schools values and mission, which is obvious in the girls caring and kind nature. I have never felt more supported and cared for than I have at Sacred Heart and I look back at my time at Sacred Heart very fondly. The gift of a Sacred Heart education is the greatest gift I have ever been given and I am so grateful to this community for always being there for me and providing me with the tools I need to succeed.
Sacred Heart has great faculty and gives you a fantastic education. However, the environment can be toxic. There is a standard "Sacred Heart girl" and if you don't fit under that umbrella, your experience can be isolating. The school is trying to improve this aspect, but for now being different is still taxing.

This isn't to say that everyone in Sacred Heart is a mean girl. The issue is that most of the students are rich, white, and outgoing, and only have experience with others who are the same. They aren't malicious, but the social divide is a product of the environment. If you visit Sacred Heart and feel like you have a lot in common with the students, you will have a good experience. If not, apply elsewhere.

I will say that Sacred Heart is an inspiring school. This school is one of few that focuses on service. Sacred Heart girls are all people who want to get involved and make the world a better place. Most private schools don't focus on service with as genuinely as CSH.
