    "I am an alumni of SHS. The atmosphere of the school is amazing and I've learned so much from the school, the good, the bad, and the ugly. The teachers are great and really care for the students, of course you have a few bad apples, but to this day as I am in college, I still here the voices and advice of my past teachers. I've carried a lot that I've learned here to HS and college. The principal, Mr. Farrell is amazing and one of the reasons my parents chose to put me into this school. He actually wants to get to know the students, therefore knowing every one of his students by name and at least a few details regarding family background. This school is in a very affluent neighborhood and the kids that attend the school are extremely blessed, so there can be quite a competition with regards to material items. However, the kids are both smart and poised. I would definitely send my kids here."

    "My eldest graduated from Sacred Heart and was completely unprepared for high school. The junior high teachers are unqualified, uncaring and unable to keep the attention of their students. The primary grade teachers are overall caring and professional but for whatever reason , the quality of staff decreases significantly once a student enters sixth grade. Math and Science are significantly lacking, almost every parent has to hire a tutor to help their child achieve. The principal makes a big deal about the SmartBoards that are in most classes, but according to my children, they are almost never utilized. Textbooks are over a decade old and teachers lack patience or adequate teaching skills. There is rampant bullying in the school which is never addressed and an overbearing clique of mothers that seem to believe that their children are the only ones whose needs are to be addressed and the principal, again for reasons unknown, allows them to assert their beliefs and agenda over all. I have watched 35 families leave this school , usually after the eldest child has suffered through junior high school. We left last year and my children are much happier in their new school."

    "I absolutely LOVE Sacred Heart School. My children have excelled throughout their years at SHS. The teachers are all motivated and dedicated to teaching our children. They make learning fun! The School's Principal, Mr. Farrell is tuned into the children and teachers' needs and is quite involved in the school. Mrs. Lyons is very dedicated to religious studies and the Girl/Cub/ Boy Scout programs. There is a comfort in the sense of community at Sacred Heart School. Parents are very involved in the school. I am proud of Sacred Heart School and it is an excellent school for educating my children. It is astounding to see that the children get so many scholarships to the high schools of their choice I highly recommend Sacred Heart School as a school of excellence!"

    "My daughter has attended this school since kindergarten, she is now in first grade. They have amazing systems in place to ensure every child is at the same level and the teachers invest extra time as they see necessary. The before school and after school program is the best for the working parent. The principal is aware of every student and their family. The parental involvement is astonishing. I would highly recommend this school, it's worth every cent!"

    "There are many positive things about this school. For one, it is a nice community where religious education is strong and children are taught positive values. The teachers are very dedicated and work really hard to help students. I write this review with love and good intention for this school. However, after attending this school for many years, I believe the issues are academic in nature. Problematic areas for your child are not targeted. Grading is based SOLELY on how they perform on tests in class. Your child can have an A average and not be able to write correctly or read on level if they are good test takers. At this school, many parents need to place their children in enrichment programs after school to help there children in reading writing and math. Although well meaning, most of the teachers in this school, with the exception of a few are not trained enough to help students improve in areas they need help with. There is very little assessment in the classroom to understand where your child functioning and if they are improving. I believe this could be a great school if these academic issues are addressed."
