Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart Reviews

Excellent school! Academics are rigorous, but fun. The teachers are very supportive, while at the same time hard graders. Girls are very kind and accepting of others, but very competitive in academics and athletics. The meal plan, Sage, is outstanding. Many girls attend ivy or prestigious universities.

My education from Stone Ridge was solid enough, but there were some complaints I heard often from students. Diversity is low and most of the student body is wealthy and white (+usually given preferential treatment.) The curriculum is unequal in terms of its quality, I found that their humanities classes were excellent while students constantly complained that STEM classes were subpar. Arts are underfunded (there's no auditorium for plays, the art classes are in the attic, there's barely a photography "studio," which is really just a hallway.) The campus is very beautiful. The resources are somewhat lackluster (very slow wifi, IT team aren't very good at fixing computers). However, I would say that most of the girls in my class were genuinely good people. The teachers were mostly good people who seemed to care about what they were doing. There were a few questionable people within the administration but for the most part they were respected and attentive. The lunches were 10/10.
Stone Ridge is a wonderful community. It can be an intense academic experience for students dominated by the college search, but the school is constantly working towards remediating that. The parent experience is welcoming and joyful with lots of events for getting to know people and the school. Much of the programming has come a long way in just the last few years!
