Sacred Heart is above & beyond when it comes to academics! My daughter has been going there for about 3yrs & has maintained straight As all 3yrs. The principal is very caring & attentive. She knows my child's name & is constantly inquiring about her well being as well as that of my youngest daughter, who is not yet attending the school. She is always available to discuss any issues of concern. I see her almost every morning & afternoon at carline. The teachers are top notch, as well. They are friendly & accommodating to the children's needs. The students DO NOT have the privileged & entitled attitude seen in many private schools. They are extremely well mannered & considerate to all who enter their school. Parent involvement is welcome and very much encouraged. The fundraisers are not your boring ideas(wrapping paper & popcorn) but things like raffle tickets & our famous PUMPKIN RUN, which benefit the school, the parents & the students! My daughter has significantly grow in her Catholic faith while attending SHCS. It takes a village to raise a child. Your child's school is an important part. I can't imagine a better community in which to raise my girls in.

Sacred Heart Cathedral School is a fantastic school. My children love the overall experience. They look forward to attending school and learning. The Principal is professional and truly cares about the overall well being of the students and faculty. She is prepared, organized, fair, accountable, accessible, and has a clear vision for the school. She is also up-to-date on the latest curriculum, national standards, and teaching methods. She has increased technology in all grade levels, and she makes sure that children and teachers have the necessary tools to be successful. More importantly, she has added a deeper understanding and commitment to Christian teachings and values. The students and faculty gather each day with a morning prayer, and it sets a calming, positive tone for the day. The faculty is very experienced and works hard to make sure the students are learning in innovative ways. This school is special in that it is very welcoming to all. It s not pretentious. In my opinion, it is the best school in Pensacola.

This school was good and we were happy here but then we got a new principal. i am glad my family is moving this summer. the new principal does what appeals to the parents/staff but then has to back track quite often. extremely disorganized and doesn't stand the ground that is expected of a principal.mstaff is nice and dedicated but things have changed.

We have been very pleased with the quality of academic programs at Sacred Heart. Our child has been able to experience art, athletics, music appreciation, and computer skills training as well as general studies. Above all, Sr. Elizabeth Knight and the staff at Sacred Heart are genuinely concerned with my childs development on all levels. Character building and responsibilty are delicately woven into his studies.

Sacred Heart is one of the best schools in Pensacola. My daughter went there from Kindergarten - 8th grade. They have an extemely caring faculty, and the best teachers in the county. (Especially Mrs. Durkin (1st grade,) Mrs. Goreman (2nd grade,) and the Middle School teachers. The Workshop Way program in the lower elementary classes really taught my daughter how to work independently and think on her own. I can not praise the teahers and the school enough.
