I gave this school three stars as it provides a great Catholic education for children, the children are very well mannered and the academics are decent. I had to pull my child from this school because as a three year old PK she was twice left standing in poop in the nurses office, an email from the nurse explained that children are required to be bathroom independent and if she had asked to use the bathroom she would have allowed her to go. Fast forward to Kindergarten, my daughter had an accident and when I arrived she was in the nurses office covered in poop and had rashes on her legs, back and buttocks. The school refuses to put any written policy in place and give a vauge response that they follow standard procedures and they have confidence in their staff ability to handle these events.

The School provides a very good Catholic education and the kids are encouraged to play together.

Has been thru many changes but this year they occured in a seamless manner. Teachers are professional and competent. All will be missed after passing on at graduation.

The principal has been in charge for three years and there are many other wonderful people at this school. It has been a great and pleasing alternative to public school.

This school has significant administrative issues and over the past 4 years have replaced 50% of the teaching staff. Many of the teachers who put forward the extra effort have been let go. The cost of tuition has increased significantly (highest cost in a 30 mile radius) and the number of students has significantly decreased. Many families have left the school to go to PCA or other Catholic schools in Newburyport or Portsmouth. Many of the extra school programs have been removed and the kids will be lacking social skills. Be sure to check the other schools in the area before selecting SHS.

What an amazing school. My child will be unfortunately graduating this year from SHS and we will all miss the wonderful school, teachers and administrators. Excellent education, amazing extracurricular offerings and an energetic upbeat staff. Along with a fantastic education my child scored in the 97th -98th percentile in national testing, had more than enough activities and sporting events to be involved in, the school is clean, wonderful playground and if that isn't enough, even the lunch food is first rate. The Principal is often seen outside tossing a ball with the kids after school and personally greets parents and knows us all by name. A top-notch private school in every way.

I am both an public school educator and a parent and I can't be more pleased with this school. The staff do an excellent job of preparing students for further academic success as well as being successful young adults. The school itself offers a tremendous array of extra curricular activities, from drama to track and field and of course baseball, softball, basketball and cross country. Students are encouraged to do their best and all of the staff are truly the kindest people you will ever have the pleasure to meet. I am so thankful for this wonderful gem of an option to public education for my children.

Both of my children have gone to Sacred Heart. My youngest is still there, the older one is in high school. I cannot say enough good things about the school & the teachers. They have high standards and do not dumb down the curriculum so that kids score well. They expect success and most children achieve it. The teaching staff is caring and they do a great job teaching and also work hard to instill Christian values that are lacking in public schools. People in town tell me they can always spot a SHS student by their good manners and respect. Students are well prepared for high school. They consistently score better than students from public schools. If you want the best for your child in the NH seacoast area-this is the best value for the price.

Sacred Heart School is a wonderful school. The teachers and staff are kind, compassionate, and caring. I have 2 children at SHS and feel the education along with the Christian teaching they get every day is worth every penny I pay to send them there. I feel children today need a tough education that will challenge them as well as teach them moral values.

Sacred Heart School offers an excellent education to its students. Students emerge fully prepared for high school.My child was able to go right into honors classes at a competitive private high school after graduating from SHS. The teachers here are very dedicated to helping these students succeed. The school not only provides a rigorous education, but also seeks to instill moral values in our children.
