Sacred Heart is a school that reinforces the values the kids are taught at home. They believe in family and community and living according the the Christian Faith. This school helps you when you need it and also gives you the encouragment so that you know you can achieve anything and make it through any difficult situation. Their academics is above and beyond with the goal of always achieving more. This is a great school.

Do not send your child here if you have a gifted child. We do our best as parents and learn while on the job, but sadly my children wasted 5 years at this school while the principal, now director promised me that they would make it competitive with Latin. Parents ignorantly assume that for $15k per child that our children will get the best education. As the staff told me, they simply don't have the money that a public school has to differentiate in the classroom so they teach to the average child.

I am also a proud parent of a Sacred Heart Student. My son had a hard time adjusting to Kindergarten initially, but with the support he received at home and at school from his teacher Mrs. Christiansen, we has now excelled, and very confident! Disciplined, conducive to learning, and family friendly, that's how I describe Sacred Heart School.

I am a proud parent of Sacred Heart School students. My 1st child has attended since Kindergargen and is now going into 6th grade, and my youngest is in 2nd. The principal truely puts the HEART!! in Sared Heart. I know all the teachers very well. That is the one good thing about Sacred Heart most of the teachers have been there for years and you come to learn their ways of teaching and you develope a good relationship with them. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for stability, discipline, control, and good values for their children to learn and experience at school. I will forever be a proud parent of Sacred Heart Schoo.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
