The principal at sacred heart school is "The Man". I have never seen a more dedicated principal. The kids respect and adore him. The teachers are great also. We are very happy with the academics. We have 3 children enrolled. Highly recommend this school.

Great School. Best private/Catholic School in south shore. Modern day technology in each classroom. Teachers really care about teaching. Principal seems to run a tight ship. Parents very involved in school which they should as its expensive to attend the school. Again best school in south shore area.

the present and most recent principal were and are excellent leaders for this school. the teachers are excellent and have a true love for working with teacher. the children get a top notch education here. They definately become disciplined in how to study as the parents are also involved deeply in the childrens education through volunteer efforts and being there for their children. it's true it is a clicky group of parents. if the child didn't start out at SHS it won't be as easy a transition into the already formed friendships, but I think you might find that anywhere. The school does a very good job of working with teaching children self respect and respect for others. I am greatful I found this school for the years my child attended. Well priced also.

Sacred Heart is a terrific school. It really does a good job of developing a school community that the children and parents feel connected to. I find that it really fosters an environment of self respect among students so you don't have to worry about bullying and harassment between students that you do in the public schools these days. I find the teachers are terrific and take an active interest in their children. I have not come across a bad one yet! I am so glad we found this school!

We sent our child to school there and found it very clique-y and unfriendly to people outside of the parish. The teachers were OK but again, more positive towards kids from the parish rather than out-of-towners. We decided to go elsewhere for schooling.

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.
