Sacred heart school is a great school, we are like a big family .It is the lowest tuition in the area .The teachers are always there to help their students when ever they need it . All academic subjects are taught including spanish,computer/art music,library and physical education.We have small class sizes plus remedial and resource help is available.Financial aid is available to those who qualify. Extra curricular activities include:a sports program(cross-country,basketball,and soccer)and a music program(instrumental band).Everything a parent would want for there children. Ive been at this school since 2001, and ill be here untill my last daughter graduate from 8th grade(2015).You just need to see the school in person to see how great it is.

It is great that the children at sacred haert school look at each other as equals. They where the same uniforms, and all have to have a clean cut appearence, which makes for no competition among the students. No-one is 'singled out'. The teachers are always fair and truly care about each student. Also there is a daycare/before and after school care available next door, which is affiliated with sacred heart.

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.
