    My three children just completed their 3rd, 2nd and Kindergarten years. I knew going in to our journey at Sacred Heart that my kids would get a great education, but it's really apparent to us now that SHS is more than just a great academic school. I can't say enough about the staff - so warm and loving. My kids go to school every day feeling very safe and loved. The community of parents is awesome!

    We are very pleased with Sacred Heart Schools. Currently have two (very different girls) enrolled, and are thrilled with how all of their teachers educate to their individual needs. The school's Goals and Criteria provide built-in character formation for them every step along the way. We are not Catholic but feel that we are respected and valued for our faith as students learn about each other's faith traditions, as well. Looking forward to our son starting JK in the fall.
    The Philosophy of Sacred Heart is nice, but unfortunately it doesn't get across to most students. There was a very big bullying problem in my grade, and when people would bring it to the teachers or administration, they did nothing. The academics there are strong, and they have a fair amount of club and teams (athletic and non-athletic). One thing they do claim is to have a economically, religiously, and culturally diverse student body, and that is true, but there definitely was a divide between the wealthy and everyone else. The quality of the teachers at the school is about 25% poor and 75% good. The middle school teachers do a good job preparing you for high school. Overall, I would suggest sending your children here if they generally fit in, and if you are wealthy, otherwise, steer clear.
