Convent of the Sacred Heart Reviews

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.

I am so lucky to have been able to attend Sacred Heart. The teachers dedicate so much time and effort into your success, the classes are small and the conversations are (mostly) amazing and thought-provoking, and the resources are insane (for all classes, sports, libraries, art, etc). I have found an amazing community of friends and peers, and have found such a great support system here. I am so ready for college, but admittedly, I will miss this place.
Extremely strong academics and rigorous courses. Excellent school facilities with one of the best sports facilities in NYC. Teachers are very caring and take the time to make sure the girls are successful and will take extra time, whenever necessary, to make sure girls understand material , and reach their potential. In addition, the girls are taught the importance of giving back to society which becomes a part of who they are and those values remain with them for the rest of their lives. Lower and Middle are academically strong yet offer a kind and nurturing staff that is unique and engaged in teaching progressive curriculum. Girls are extremely successful in college placement, and thrive in some of the most selective colleges in the country. Truly one of the best girls schools in the country.
