The new principal has no experience with kids and has a tendacy to not communicate with the parents anout their child's progress or failure. The turnover rate for the teachers this year has been horrible, there is no structure, or consistency with the kids as it was when the former Principal was there.

I am thankful to God for providing my daughter & I with a secure an non-hostile enviroment in Sacred Heart School . My daughter was in a Pinellas Park public elementary school where she was treated like number & bullied for three years, k-2nd grade . In public school she struggled in math and is not excells. Here at Sacred Heart she is treated as an individual with respect from her peers as well as her teachers. I can leave my daughter at the school and no matter what happens I know my daughter is safe until I pick her up. All employees and volunteers have to be fingerprinted and a background checked for safety and the school is locked to prevent individuals from entering without permission. Its not just a school is a community because parents have to be involved in volunteering and the academics are far superior to public education.

My daughter has been @ Sacred Heart for the past 5 years and is starting her 6th year. My husband & I have been both pleased with our daughters education from SHCS. Her ITBS scores were at and above grade level. Our oldest daughter went to SHCS from Pre-K to 4th grade. We had to put her into Public School do to her learning disablity. Public School failed to meet her needs and didn't even followed her IEP. So we put her back into private and decided that our younger daughter wouldn't go to Public School. Public doesn't care about the children only about their FCat scores & money. At SHCS the staff & teachers have 2 goals for the children "COLLEGE & HEAVEN". Those are the same goals me & my husband have for our child. I thank God for SHCS. God is good!

We are in our 4th year at Sacred Heart Catholic School and we love it. We are so blessed to have a wonderful principal and teachers who really care about the students education. Starting the 2012 - 2013 school year Sacred Heart Catholic School will be a Notre Dame Ace Academy. My sons ITBS scores are all in th high 90% thanks to his teachers at Sacred Heart.

Sacred heart Catholic School is under new leadership. I see students really respecting one another, students motivated to learn, and caring teachers. The academic program challenges students , and the students learn how to study.

Hello, former student of this school, and I can assure you this school was never the richest like Saint Jude or others, but provided a close nitch feel that has bonded me to other Catholics as I've grown up. I believe it is beneficial for children to master many languages, and not hinder their (one of the parent posters used the wrong homonym, tsk, tsk) innate desire to explore cultures through language. I can assure you the leadership under principal Williams is necessary. After being away for almost four years, she still remembers myself and others in my class. This school taught me to read, thus advancing my pursuit to become a successful writer (I am currently writing for a publication that reaches well over 3,500 readers). Children need discipline to acquire personality and responsibility seperate from their homes and parents.

My grandchild has been in this school since EC-4. He has had wonderful teachers and ineffectual teachers. I mostly feel that the school rules are rigid yet displays great flexibility when called upon to do so. I have not been thrilled with all the administrative decisions. But I believe my grandchild has gotten the best education he could have gotten in the south. He has been safe and in a protective environment that I believe will foster his love of education tempered with Roman Catholic ideals. I find no better way to live your life.

Most of the curriculae is dictated by the Diocese, and not focused on individual needs. Why should 1st graders be taught Spanish when they haven't mastered English? There IS strong leadership here, but they do have their hands tied by the Diocese. Teachers come and go at every school and this one is no different. The school just merged with another, so there are some kinks that need to get worked out.

This school has a lack of leadership at the top and the matienance people don't do there job ever. The new administration should help the school a lot.

My children, a first grader and a preschooler, love coming to school everyday. They even want to stay for the aftercare program.

I dont believe the quality of the school is very good. My daughter comes home telling me of how the teachers dont teach her anything and that they in fact are quite rude and revolting. In fact when i bring up this subject, a lot of the children started to cry. In astonishment, i realised not many of the teachers or faculty havent. You see another complaint i have, again the cleaning crew doesnt do their asigned taskes, that is if they even have any.

The school lacks leadership beginning with the administration. There is a revolving door of teacher's and parents are always put in the dark about why they left. The new teacher's that are hired do not seem qualified.

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.
