Sacred Heart is a small Spanish-English bilingual Catholic School located in the lovely Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, DC. My family feels very lucky to be a part of this school and we have loved watching it grow. Sacred Heart has a warm, inclusive environment and solid academics with a lot of individualized attention. Teachers use a lot of art and creative thinking routines in the classroom to enhance the students' learning process and to deepen their understanding. The school also focuses on social justice and community service, which has been a bonus.

Sacred Heart is a wonderful, little hidden gem. It is very focused on academics and making sure that the kids become bi-literate, critical and creative thinkers (ask them about their involvement in Harvard's Project Zero). The smaller class sizes allow for more one-on-one attention from the teachers who are invested in helping the kids become compassionate, intelligent human beings. The building is old and there are a lot of upgrades that could be made, but it is clean and the teachers are nurturing. The environment is embracing and has students from a diverse number of racial, socioeconomic and religious backgrounds. My son has really blossomed since starting school here. The staff and teachers all know his name and greet him at the door in the morning. It puts a big smile on his face and makes school a place where he feels safe and not anxious. He loves learning and looks forward to seeing his teachers and classmates every day.

My daughter is just about to complete her first year at Sacred Heart (pre-k 3). SH is a relatively small school with a friendly and warm atmosphere. Parent participation and involvement in the school is strongly encouraged by the principal which is great. The bilingual aspect of the school is important to me as I'm raising my daughters in Spanish and English at home as well. Having been raised Catholic I also value the school's Catholic tradition and values.

My children have been attending Sacred Heart Catholic School for several years. Is small school, but growing steadily over the years. The teacher are excellent, caring, motivated and committed to provide the best education to their students. They are constantly finding innovative ways to teach. The athletic program is growing, elementary and middle school have a soccer and tennis club, which is healthy way to create school spirit, responsibility and comaraderie. Education, behavior and good grades are a must to be eligible to participate in these clubs. The idea of starting a baseball and basketball clubs are in development. I love the fact that is a bilingual school and my children learn their heirtiage. The school has a strong belief, warm, cheerful attitude and familiar enviroment!

My son has been attending Sacred Heart for two years. Prior to his entry he understood Spanish but he was definitely not bilingual. His Spanish has improved by leaps and bounds in the last two years while he successfully completes academic grade-level coursework in Spanish. Additionally, this is a small community where all the kids know each other from pk-8th grade. It's a family.

I have taught at Sacred Heart for 3 years and have found it to be one of the best kept secrets in DC! We have an amazing community of people from all over DC seeking an excellent bilingual education. We have committed teachers and parents who work tirelessly to support our children and watch our school improve. Our school's mission statement includes that we "educate the whole child". I find this to be true of our school and am inspired by how strong our children are, not just academically, but spiritually and emotionally as well.

My child is currently enrolled in P-K. So far, I have had a great experience with the teachers, parents and the school itself. The principal, Mr. Mola is very professional and knowledgeable. I love the fact that students wear uniforms and a healthy lunch is now provided, but no only that, they also have the option to take their on food. The school is very secure and safe for our little ones.

We are very happy with our decision to send our child to Sacred Heart School. It is a warm and friendly school, with caring, committed teachers and students who are genuinely happy to be there. The parents are involved in improving the school and there is open communication between parents and the administration. The fact that the school is completely bilingual from pre-k 3 through eighth grade is exceptional.

Sacred Heart is an amazing school that is student centered and values based. Every day we work to let our students SHINE. Every day I walk through the front doors and am greeted with the brightest smiles and most eager learners. I am so proud to say that I work here and I am more proud to say that my incredible students and endlessly supportive administration are what keep me here. Our students grow as independent, ethical, and academic thinkers every day... and in 2 languages! I love Sacred Heart.
