I have daughter who attends this school. Yes, her class size is large but most class sizes are small and each year the teacher of this alrge group is given a great deal of assistance and aide. It is a beautiful and clean school. The teachers are very dedicated. The Principal has only been here for 2 years and has made many changes to improve the school. I am quite pleased with the development of this school and have foudn them very open to ideas and concerns.
My wife and I presently have 4 children who are enrolled in Sacred Heart School. We will be sending our 5th child next year after our oldest graduates from 8th grade this year. They have attended the school for years and I can say that they absolutley love the teachers and environment. The faculty are dedicated, the curriculum is challenging, the sports and music departments are fantastic, and the student body is respectful and kind towards each other. It's really a wonderful school that I am proud to say my children attend. It's truly a mix of old fashion teaching where every child seems to be thought of as if they were your own with current technology and progressive teaching methods integrated into the classrooms. This is all done with a primary focus on making sure these kids go on to high school with all the tools to succeed both spiritually and intellectually. Money well spent from a parent of 5 children. It would be much easier for us financially to send our kids to public school, however, it's has been worth every nickel thus far. We wouldn't change a thing.
Our daughter attended this school several years ago. Enrollment declined and classes are overcrowded. One poster wrote about small classes. 30+ children is a class is not what I would consider small class size. Most of the work seemed very rote. I no longer felt that the tuition we were paying was worth the education my daughter was receiving. There are several other educational options in our area other than the local Oxford schools.
A school that teaches the entire child. Tuition is worth every penny. Small classes. The public system is so overwhelming - children are too easily lost in the system. Sacred Heart has the most dedicated and hard working principal I've known. It is a community of families who partner with the teachers and principal to offer their children the best in education and spirituality. The only thing the public system has over this school is the extracurricular activities they offer. Sacred Heart is a young school and is still working to build their CYO program but they do have some offerings. I don't see this as a huge negative as there are an abundance of extra curricular activities in the community through parks and recreation, the YMCA and independent karate, dance studios etc.
The quality of education that is provide is exceptional. Parents are encouraged to play an active role in the school. Coach Biondy has provided wonderful and lasting guidance to our son in his journey into sports. The teachers at Sacred Heart are the best around.
You will never get this type of environment and dedication in a public school. Every penny scrimped and saved for tuition is worth it. My children feel safe and secure, are assured small class sizes and have the guidance of an incredible teaching staff to encourage them in their academic sucess. Academics and Arts are well balanced and there are numerous extra curricular activities. Parent involvement is high and it shows. Sacred Heart is more than a school - it is it's own community of children,parents and teachers guided by the best elementary principal I have ever known.
