Our son entered SHCS second semester in 1st grade from Crosby ISD. He needed a smaller more structured environment and a place where it was ok to be a little different! He is our thinker and our "out of the box" child and now towards the end of 2nd grade he is still doing well. He has opened up and is finding his way. We are not Catholic but we love he is able to learn about Christianity and freely talk about it at school! And the curriculum is top notch! Challenging him daily! Blessed.

Sacred Heart is the best school for my child. She is a new child going from public to private school. The classes are small. The teachers are great and they care deeply for their students. I love that they offer after school tutorials and that they have religion everyday. The kids are great individuals with supportive parents. It is so different from public school. I feel that my child is in the best hands during the day. Ms. Harris the principal is actively involved. She is always checking in on the students as well as the teachers. Could not ask for a better school!!!

My son entered SHCS in 8th grade, after being homeschooled all previous years. This was such a great choice for so many reasons. The class size was small, with lots of teacher interaction, the moral and academic standards were high and challenged him to grow. He played basketball (and soccer) for the school, improving significantly in his game since he could play so much of the game. The strong math and science propelled him to upper level classes when he entered public high school, and he is now inducted, as a junior, in the National Honor Society.

This is the best school in this area period. We toured and investigated private and public schools before moving and Sacred Heart was by far an elite organization. Once we met with Mrs. Harris and the rest of the staff, there was no doubt in our minds that this was the place for our child. We are not Catholic however we were made to feel welcome and very comfortable with the atmosphere as well as the environment in which religion is represented and presented. The curriculum is challenging, but the teachers are highly qualified and truly care about your child s success. The school offers a variety of clubs as well as cheerleading and sports. My daughter loves this school. The only thing I would change is opening it up to grades 9-12!

All three of my children have attended Sacred Heart with the youngest still there in the 6th grade. My oldest child started there 14 years ago. It is one big family of students, teachers and parents with our number one priority being to raise good Christians who are well educated. My older two children excelled high above their peers in public high school when they left Sacred Heart. Sacred Heart teaches children how to learn, not how to memorize answers to the test.

We moved from the Chicago area and were very nervous about which new school to send our daughter to. When we visited Sacred Heart, Mrs. Harris (the principal) put our nerves at ease. We knew from the tour that's where we wanted to send our daughter. The environment was peaceful, very welcoming and the students so polite. It hasn't changed since, we are very happy about the choice we made. It's a wonderful school with great teachers and great principal. We absolutely love it and would not make a change. Academically, they challenge our daughter every day and she is excelling in everything she does getting straight A's.. Showing God's love is first at Sacred Heart and that is what we believe really makes all the difference in all our daughter does. We would not consider public school for that reason alone. We highly recommend this school to anyone thinking about sending their children to a private school.

My boys have been attending Sacred Heart now for 3 years. They love the school and the staff. They have a wonderful principal that really seems to care about the children. They offer after school sports and are academically competitive with other all surrounding schools. We love this school, and feel very blessed to be a part of their family.

We feel very blessed to be able to send our children to Sacred Heart. Our daughter has been in attendance for 4 years and our son will start next school year. It is wonderful to know christian values are being incorporated into the childrens' education. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful principal that truly cares about the children as if they were her own. Sacred Heart is an amazing place with amazing teachers and staff!

Sacred Heart has a great principal and great teachers that care! My child is in the 5th grade and we wouldn't think of being anywhere else. It nice to know my child is getting the best education she can get while making lifelong friends and establishing Christian values.

We have a strong new principal and pastor who have the same vision for this school. The small class sizes for the price are the best you can find in Houston. I drive 30 minutes to send my kids there.

Sacred Heart is a truly great school. I just finished my eighth grade year and I didn't want to leave. The school is like a second family to me and will always have a mark on my heart and who I am. The teachers are amazing and always know how to break things down and explain them to where you can easily understand and retain what you are learning. Sacred Heart staff and students are my second family and I wouldn't wAnt it any other way.

I love SHS. Period! I enjoy the fact my kids aren't getting brainwashed at the local public school.

I thought I should update my post, since it has been 5 years since my last post. My daughter graduated from SHS 3 years ago and will be a senior at Incarnate Word Academy next year. My son started at SHS in PreK-4 and is in his 9th year at SHS and plans to go to St. Thomas H.S. after next year. It will be very difficult for us to leave next year (after being there since 1998.) The small classes and dedicated teachers and staff have given our children the tools they need to excel. They've grown in faith, compassion, responsibility, character, and intelligence. I'm excited about their prospects for high school, college and the future. Thanks Sacred Heart. You really do have a Heart for our kids!
