Sacred Heart Cathedral Middle School has been a very positive experience for our middle-schooler. Math, Spanish, Literature Arts, Art, Drama, History and Religion have all been high points this year. With the new principal that started this fall, there have been more family friendly programs like internet safety, and more family friendly policies (no homework on Halloween). There has been more emphasis on Grammar and project based learning.
We started this year and our expectations were exceeded. The environment was positive, yet challenging. Our son came home everyday with a smile on his face. Enjoyed every minute of it. Cannot say enough about the dedicated staff, the community, the offerings...everything....so far, outstanding and worth every penny and then some!
Middle School Good points: ability to take Spanish and electives. Solid on basics. Catholic education. Location, sports. Points to consider: can be a high stress environment which can be discouraging for developing a joy in learning for an insecure child , lots of rote homework with worksheets, and memorization. Focuses heavily on grades with a strict scale that gives a B at 92.5 and C at 85.5 with children being encouraged to log in to online grading and homework system frequently check on their homework and minute grade variations. Honors track classes can be large up to 28 students which is high for a private school. Heavy focus on dress code.
The principal is clueless. There are a couple of good teachers, but most are mean and should not be around children. Save your money.
We are investing in the future by sending our children to SHCS to get a solid Catholic education.
My child hated it there she couldn't stand the teachers and the atmosphere there. It was overly strict and cause too much stress for the children.
Best school ever! My child loves it! Especially the smaller classes than public schools!
Awesome. My son thinks that his school is the most awesome place in the world to be.
