this is a great school and I think you should send your children, their food is nice.

Worst of three catholic schools my children have attended. More like a public school atmosphere, not even monthly mass. No "playing" at recess, problem integrating new students, student bullying problem. Parking lot worse than LA traffic -- no sensible plan . Test scores low.

Sacred Heart grade school is a great school with so much to offer. There are prek -3 and prek 4 classes available and there are no more than 18 children per class. The staff are always very warm and friendly and seem to genuinely care about the children.

Both my children attend/attended this school. Great staff that will prepare your child for highschool. Could not be more pleased.

My daughter graduated from SH High School and I could not have been happier with her education. Her daughter started at SH in preK3 and preK4. When she started kindergarten, the teachers recognized right away that she was advanced and after meeting with my daughter and then with the principal, she got skipped and is now in 1st grade. I read all the negative reviews and I guess everyone's perception is different. I think this school and the teachers are awesome!

I love Sacre Heart Grade School. It is the only school in Yonkers that has a program for academically advanced students. My children love it. They feel welcome here. I would never put them in a different school!!!!!!!!!

I think this school is over rated. My chld is in Pre K 3 and she complains how boring the class is. They now have over 28 students in one class with one teacher and two helpers. I am very unsatisfied. I would like to keep my child in this school but they need major improvement. ( fewer students per class for Pre K and a better and more experience teacher)

A sound academic program based with traditional catholic values. The staff and teacher truly care about each child and really listen to them. It is a wonderful family school. As a new parent to the school, I was welcomed with open arms.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
