    "I am a parent, involved for over thirty years in both private, public, and charter schools. SHS expectations are the best I have ever experienced! My children have received a top notch education in their spiritual, educational, and emotional development. I find it interesting to read a negative post that a person will put on someone's website. In todays world when anyone can go onto another school's website or business and try to say negative things about the institution or business you never know if it is a true statement. Your negative post doesn't match up. I love our school principal who has been at the school for 7 years and has over 25 years of educational experience. Being around schools I know a parent who had something negative to post wasn't being responsible with paying their tuition, or their child misbehaved. Five star hotels receive negative posts??? I've known the current administration for many years and he is very confident, extremely fair, and morally grounded. Stop by the school and come a take a personal visit for yourself. The principal has always made time for me. I have spoken to him as late as 8 pm, on the weekends, and via e-mail 7 days a week."

    "The excellence of Sacred Heart School continues to shine for 65 years!!! I chuckled when I read the earlier post that the school is struggling because there are billboards around town. SHS is celebrating their 65th anniversary as a school and are making great strides in adding to the excellence of the school!! I'm excited to hear they are adding a transitional kindergarten class next year and are becoming a wireless campus. That is what the billboard mentioned. You call that struggling??? As a local business man and proud parent of SHS using billboards is one of the best ways to market your business or school. The parent who submitted that comment hasn't attended any recent marketing trainings. If you happen to look around town, there are successful and billion dollar businesses who advertise such as McDonald's etc... Also, I know that all of the teachers have their degrees and are working towards their credentials too. SHS uses ITBS data for standardized testing and isn't the same standardized testing system that the public schools use. SHS uses all of their students scores and some school use only skewed scores. Stop by to see and visit the best overall school around!!!"

    "This school is struggling. Billboards are up around town to drum up business. This school has a bad rep. They refuse to acknowledge or admit there are problems. They have tried to blame it on the economy. All have degrees? Degrees in what? They will not even release this info---degrees, credentials, test scores. Important question: how many have valid CA credentials? Most of the staff has turned over in the last ten years. It is unlikely these teachers have taught two generations from the same family. This school is in an old low income area that the city has tried to revitalize. Sounds like someone is exaggerating things. This school needs to step it up. With homeschooling and charter schools, people are not wanting to spend the money for private schools where the teaching is just average. Parents have to put in a lot of time teaching and helping their kids. The benefits are not equal to the costs."

    "This school is absolutely amazing! Teachers all have their degrees and truly care for each student. My husband went to school here many years ago and now we send our kids here. It feels comforting and safe knowing that many of the faculty that taught him are now teaching our children. The school is located next to a police station and fire station and as working parents this gives us a sense of safety for our children. Their academics are top notch and there are so many extra curricular activities for the kids to be involved in such as sports, choir, handbells, band, student council, cheerleading, mathletes, decathalon, science olympiad, and speech team just to name a few. There are many traditional fun activities our kids look forward to every year such as a Halloween carnival, Christmas program, class holiday parties, Field Day, K-5 playdays, jr high dances, and Catholic Schools Week just to name a few. It truly feels like a family and am so happy to send our kids to this school!"

    "Beware of spin--in a review, website, or brochure. A good thing: kids learn how to be students. Rigor & structure in classrooms make for good students. There's a standard & excuses aren't tolerated. I don't necessarily agree with how they achieve this--lots of homework, tests, & extreme grading. Concerned about some things. Yes, one year they got top scores in deanery, but..not done consistently year after year. Yes, top third of 8th graders get into honor classes at h.s., but..bottom third often MUST take summer school to get into the h.s. Yes, one teacher has an MA, but..most don't & only a few have credentials. Yes, school does well in academic competitions. Teams are led by the same teacher--one of the few who knows how to teach; top few kids of each class are on the teams year after year--not representative of entire student body. Yes, they do well in sports (not as well as they used to), but..this school is one of the biggest out of 8 in league with about 108 kids in jr. high. Some schools don't have that many in K-8. There have been times when like only 3 other schools will play a particular sport so they end up best out of four?!!! Not really proving much! Beware of spin!"
