I attended Sacred Heart Schools from 2016-2019. It was a great experience, and I enjoyed every second of it. There are tons of extracurriculars if you're a sports person, and the robotics team is pretty good this year. If you like dance, theater, art, science, english, social sciences, robotics, sports, community service, or religion, Sacred Heart is the school for you. The science program is relatively amazing, and social sciences department is totally rocking it. If you like religion, you'll love the religious studies department. The English department is also doing their job really well. Pretty much all the juniors here take AP English Language and Composition, and Sacred Heart definitely prepares everyone for college really well. The counselors here are actually really good overall, and the community is generally very supportive. There's definitely room for growth at Sacred Heart (like it would be nice to offer more math classes), but overall, I totally love this school.

Overall, my experience at Sacred Heart Preparatory was fantastic. It's a beautiful school that has the academic and athletic resources to help your kid thrive and prepare for top-ranked colleges. The teachers, for one, love and support all of their students and make all of their classes fun and engaging. When I was at Sacred Heart Preparatory, I never had a dull day of learning. I loved doing crazy experiments in my Physics class and acting out Shakespeare in my AP Literature class.

Sacred Heart Prep also has an amazing student body. Sure, just like any high school it can be hard to fit in at first. I was initially a new kid that was coming into high school knowing nobody, but Sacred Heart Preparatory made me feel like I was at home. Although it can be a bit difficult some times "socially," if you put yourself out there, be outgoing, and have a good attitude you'll be fine.

So, give Sacred Heart a chance. It's a great school and I loved my time there. (Shout out: CLASS OF 2020!)
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!
