One of the best kept secrets in Baton Rouge -- because of its mid-city location, this school draws from a diverse base of families from throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area. Its small size (~450 students) provides a warm environment for its rigorous academic programs. We are proud to have high (quite often highest!) test scores in diocese. In addition to all of this, there is a real sense of serving the community instilled in the kids. I have three kids at SHS and could not be happier.
My children have flourished at Sacred Heart. Academically, it is one of the top schools in the area. It's a small, loving environment that really focuses on the total child.
The classes are over crowded this year and I find that the teachers are not able to provide enough individualized attention. Teachers are not open to new teaching styles In order to reach all students and prepare them for this computerized society.
This school has been a blessing. My daughter has been at Sacred Heart for three years. (I switched her here after some terrible experiences in EBR public schools.) She has made friends easily. The staff are always warm and inviting, and they always make my family feel welcome. I love how the faculty find ways to make the curriculum appropriate yet interesting and challenging to the students. I commend their anti-bullying program and the timeliness of responses to emails and phone calls. Sacred Heart is the best kept secret in town!
