Now that the Principal has pushed all the families and great Teachers out of the school , it has all gone down the drain. Office staff and Principal are very rude and they talk about everyone. Don't they know all the parents talk to eachother? The Principal of this school really needs to go so the school can become a good Catholic school once again. The children don't even pray the way they should. Very mismanaged and disorganized. I am glad I took my children out of this school. You pay for a good Catholic education but at Sacred Heart all you do is waste money.

My son completed Pre-K this year and we look forward to continuing his catholic education at Sacred Heart School. I love the assembly for morning prayer with his school and the opportunity to grow in his faith as he grows academically. Sending our son to school everyday in a safe, small and loving environment is very comforting.

Sacred Heart is a good school with faculty and staff that provide a loving and nurturing environment to the children. The new principal is energetic and inspires everybody to do their best.

I removed my child from this school after learning several teachers were not qualified to teach in this state. Two teachers do not have college degrees and other teacher do not have credentials. However, I hope you will make your own choice regarding this school.

As a parent of 2 children at SHS I have seen many positive changes in the last 6 years there. This school year (03-04) begins with a new principal as well, and we hope that this even adds to the overall unity of the school, it's educators, and its parents. The school although small in number truly reflects the commitment of its parents, and the students involvement in its education and religion.

My daughter started kindergarten this past year, and I couldn't have been any happier with our school selection. Mrs. Bell reminded me of all the great teachers that I had grown up with, I don't have one complaint of her first year. I am looking forward to seeing my daughter grow and prosper at such a fine establishment. The teachers are great and all the parents are very giving of their time and dedication to the school. If you are looking for a good school, this is the one.

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.
