My son transfered to this school after his Catholic school was closed 3 years ago, and it was the best thing that could have happened. Not only is the teaching superior, but he was quickly and easily accepted by the other students, and has made many very nice friends. I can't say enough good things about the leadership, the teachers, and his fellow students. He is doing well and really likes school.

I can't say enough about Mrs. Murphy and her staff. The TLC is beyond belief and the education is second to none.

The teachers are wonderful and dedicated. The school is small and feels very much like family. When we started our daughter it was only with the intention of sending her there for preschool then transferring her to a public school. We are so happy tho that we plan to send her all the way thru.

My children have been attending this school since they are 3 years old. The family-like environment at Sacred Heart is like no other school. It is apparent that the education and safety of each teacher is first-priority. As long as the doors of Sacred Heart are open-my children will be enrolled.

I'm in 8th. I love it, but if you've been there since you were little you get a little picky with everyone the year you graduate. But hey, if you've been here for 11 years you could see why. But i love it. :D

I am a graduate of this school, and althogh the high school was compromised to accomodate keeping the elementary part alive, the part that remains is absolutely amazing. My teachers were very warm and caring, always making sure they provided me with every advantage possible. I really loved every day, and I'll never go a day without using a teaching on life that was learned in the warm and loving atmosphere of Sacred Heart Elementary school! Go crusaders!!

I am a graduate of Sacred Heart High School and also currently have three children attending Sacred Heart Elementary. The education that my children are receiving is unsurpassed. The faculty and staff are always willing to go above and beyond to help any child in need. The children consider themselves 'one family' and this is evident everytime you walk into the school. Sacred Heart Elementary is a wonderful school and I would recommend it to any parent.

As a student I have atteneded Sacred Heart since Pre-k 3 and am now in 7th grade. Although some days I may not like school, I know that Sacred Heart is like a family to me. Every day you walk in through the doors you can feel the home-like atmosphere and the love and care from teachers. Every teachers shows great pride in there work and if there is a student in trouble they are right there with open arms!

My daughter began school here as a pre-primary student. I was drawn immediately to the family/home-like atmosphere. When I dropped my child off on the very first day, I was a little apprehensive at first, but my fears soon turned to confidence as my child was surrounded by loving and capable teachers. Three years later as my child is preparing to enter kindergarten, My family and I are pleased with the choice we have made for our daughter's education. We feel welcome and at-home every time we enter those front doors and most importantly, we feel as if our child is treated with respect and love. A mixture of wonderful, friendly classmates, a faculty and staff that treat the children as if they were their own and a bright cozy environment will make your child feel as if she has never left home. We know our second duaghter will love it too!

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.
