Sacred Heart has many positive things about it such as the low student to teacher ratio, and the focus on values. The school turns out students who are well schooled in language arts. Math, however is a real challenge for this school. The math program throughout the grades lacks academic rigor. Students may have good grades at Sacred Heart, but are definitely behind in math. Your children will be valued here, just know that you will need to provide considerable outside experiences to make certain they are current with their peers in Math and Science

I love the environment and home feeling of Sacred Heart. I have gone here since 1st grade and loved it since. My friends are like family and my teachers are so welcoming and caring, you feel like you are at home. I would not choose anywhere else to spend these years of my life than here and I am as glad as can be my parents sent me here. It has made even my religion stronger, and i excel highly and get very one-on-one help from teachers. I just love this school!

Sacred Heart is one of the area's best-kept secrets. The children who graduate from SHS excel in many different ways. They truly achieve their goal of helping each child find the gift God has given to them. I highly recommend it!

Sacred Heart is a wonderful and caring environment for our children. The principal and teachers are dedicated to teaching the children. The people we have met through the school have become an extended family. I would highly recommend sending your children to Sacred Heart.

We moved from a very expensive school in another town and find that Sacred Heart has so much more to offer educationally and with the extracurriculars. The principal and staff are incredible. We have been very happy at this school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
