Wonderful faith-centered school. Smack dab in middle of close knit community where everyone looks out for each other and their kids. My kids are getting the best education in Hattiesburg at Sacred Heart School.

A lack of fairness and dicipline & a staff that ignores problems until it's too late; and POLITICS! School has bullying issues.

Sacred Heart School is a true school family! I have 2 boys, 5th and 2nd grades, and they have both attended SHS since Pre-K 4. The administration is outstanding, teachers are way above average in instruction skills, creativity and compassion and the families are active and involved. Our academic program exceeds anything else offered in our area even when compared with schools much larger than ours. Sports and extracurricular activities have increased dramatically as we have grown over the last couple of years. Our children are able to get a full elementary, jr. high and high school experience while remaining a small, values oriented environment. We are truly blessed to have such a school available to us!

In a world of schools with 1000+ students, we are thrilled that Sacred Heart is small and very personal. The academics are impressive, and although we are not Catholic, the character building through religion study is a bonus. Parental involvement is required, which is one of the things that makes Sacred Heart so great.

I have two children enrolled here. Not only are my husband and I happy with the academics, art, sports (other than football), and level of parental support and participation, the teachers are dedicated and our kids love it!

I have 1 child in 2nd grade and will have 2 more starting 7th grade in the fall. I believe that Sacred Heart has extremely caring staff and faculty that are very well qualified to teach our children. The addition of the high school has provided additional opportunities for all students in athletics, academics and extracurricular activities. If there is any kind of problem with my child, I know about it right away. The involvement of the parents as collaborators with the educators is unmatched in my experience. In addition, I have found the staff and students to be accepting and tolerant of others beliefs, something that was very important to my family and I.

I have been absolutely satisfied with every aspect of Sacred Heart. My daughter is a third grader who started SH in Pre-K. Being raised in New Orleans, diversity is very important to us, and we have found it at Sacred Heart. SH provides an impressive Christian environment coupled with an excellent curriculum. You will not meet a faculty more concerned about and involved with the students. There is very strong parental and parish support that makes up a community you won't want to miss out on!

I have 3 boys who all attend sacred heart school. (Pre-k, 2nd, and 4th) We have loved this school. The sense of community and family that is taught to the student body is beyond comparison. I feel parents are well informed in school events, policies, etc. Now that the school has advanced to the high school level, we are thrilled! Michael & Tammy Fereday

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.
