This school is not what it was. There is a lack in leadership and authority. Situations between students are poorly handled, if they are handled at all it usually is when a parent complains even then not much gets done. Teachers choose favorites, they will listen to one student over another. Sometimes not allowing some children to tell their side or telling that child they can't be trusted. When in all reality this is done for political reasons. The children are constantly criticized, there is no constructive criticism. The way some teachers speak,act and dress are totally inappropriate for a catholic school. The diocese should really take a closer look. Don't think the personnel will treat your child with the same respect as when you are there, because their demeanor drastically changes when your not. If your looking for a good school to send your child think again about this one, they let anyone go here so you will find the same issues that most public schools have. I am sorry I spent the amount of money I have just to have my children tell me how much they hate their school. If it wasn't for the fact they have made many friends I would have pulled them from here.
My children have attended Sacred Heart School for 7 years. It it the most wonderful experience and have not had one regret.
My grand child started school here in the 4th grade .I can not thank them enough she did great if I could rate this school on a scale from one to ten I would give the school a rating of a ten thank you very much for everything you did.
My daughter has thrived at Sacred Heart. In my view there is no better school in the Capital District. Small classes, excellent academics, caring staff. Homework/projects which are not 'busy work.' Teachers who go above and beyond. Worth every penny.
We could not have chosen a better school for our child. The faculty and administration all support our children's growth, acadmic achievement and Catholic identity. There are opportunities for gifted and struggling students. All one has to do is ask and the faculty and administartion put their heads together and make a plan. We do not regret the sacrifices we have made to send our child to Sacred Heart (Pre K - 6th grade).
A nice, small school. I love Fr. Vaughn, Mrs. Nixon, Mrs. McCaffery. Generally, an enthusiastic staff.
great administration, wonderful children, exemplory programs and true Catholic spirit shown, especially by the students. I encourage all to attend their annual live nativity pageant to fully appreciate all this school has to offer!
This a Catholic School that keeps the traditions of our Faith while preparing children for living that Faith in the future. The principal is a living example of strong Faith, forward thinking, highly informed and educated. She is dedicated to keeping this school at a high standard. What a great role model!
The academics are very good although it is lacking for the students that need more of a challenge. They do provide music, art, spanish, and PE. Many parents are involved and the numbers are increasing with a new PSA in place.
The principal is a class act.! Totally up all the time and the positive attitude trickles down to the teachers and parents!
