Sacred Heart Schools Atherton Reviews

I have had the most amazing education at SHS. The teachers teach beyond the book and what is required, which allows me to have a truly well rounded education. In addition, they are extremely supportive and truly want to get to know the students. There are lots of opportunities for students to get involved in pretty much anything, from sports to leadership to arts. Leadership opportunities are structured in a way that is balanced during the school day, so student athletes or performers in the play can still be involved in other clubs. The school has really placed emphasis on student wellness also. And, the community is supportive and fun. I have loved my experience as a gator and will miss it next year!

I liked the community that the school had, it seems like it would be really different from public schools and I could say I knew a majority of the people. I liked the learning environment and the teachers were always involved and loved to learn about their students and help in any way they could. The school spirit is great, especially when it came to sports and spirit week. The school had a good way to help students feel comfortable.
The best four years I have ever had. The community is very close and I made some of the best memories in high school. The faculty and staff really care about you and are willing to help with whatever you need. The academics are very challenging and rigorous, but prepare you for college. I was very fortunate and blessed to have gone here and wish the best for the future students.
