Great support from teachers and administrative staff. They help build confident and well rounded children. Kids not only learn the basics (math, language arts, social skills,..) but also get exposure to art and culture. This catholic school promotes education of other cultures and religions as well and puts together school wide events to recognize the values important to the family body. I am giving the school 4stars (and not 5) because I feel there is room for improvement in recognizing the individual differences between children and identifying each child's individaul strenghts.

We came from another private school in Portola Valley and the change I have seen in my daughter at Sacred Heart is night and day. The teachers are warm, caring, professional and provide timely, accurate, and relevant feedback. The staff is engaged and my daughter looks forward to coming to school each day. We made the best decision moving our daughter here and find it a wonderful fit.

Outstanding academic program in a very small class size, family environment. Truly a unique and wonderful experience for any high school student. The students who graduate from SHP are very prepared for college.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
