The school has a great administration, caring teachers and staff, and wonderful students who care about each other. The school provides an outstanding moral based Catholic education and challenging curriculum with several AP and Honors courses for those needing to be challenged. There are a variety of clubs, community service outreach, sports opportunities, and great coaches who truly are dedicated to the students! There is a spirit at the Heart that is unique and parental and alumni support that is second to none! My daughter is receiving an outstanding education and not only is she receiving everything she needs to be prepared for college, but the philosophy of the school educates the total student...mind, body and soul! I would highly recommend this school to any potential parent and student seeking a well rounded Catholic education!

My high school experience at Sacred Heart High School so far as been the best four years at my life. From making new friends, learning more about my favorite subjects including history and religion, playing new sports that i never did before, and joining clubs that i never knew existed. Coming here really changed my perspective on how my life was going, showing me what a real family is. Going to lunch, sports events, even school events, no one ever sits alone. Someone is always sitting with someone because no one should ever be left out. Sacred Heart is a friendly and welcoming school, they accept everyone for who they are no matter what race, gender, or sexuality, we all love each other for who we are. We never turn a student down, we always give a student a chance to succeed at what we think is best for each other. This school is known for volunteer work from working in schools, soup kitchens, and etc, we always want to help no matter what.
Sacred Heart provides a small community environment to a diverse group of students. Staff is always available when needed to meet with a parent. Tuition is very affordable compared to many of the other private high schools in the state.
The required community service not only teaches the students the importance of community involvement but also allows them to work with individuals out side the school. This allows them to an opportunity to strengthen their skill set of team work.
The only con is limited parking and lack of sports facilities on site for sports such as football, baseball, swimming and track.
