I switched from duxbury middle school to sacred heart in 7th grade. they tell you that the teachers care about you and will push you and make sure you succeed but this isn't true. many teachers are pushovers and don't care if you do your work. many teachers don't even teach and the science department
... Read more is a joke. everyone in my 8th grade honor class was completely confused due to the fact that our own teacher had admitted to us that he didn't know what he was teaching us either. sports are absolutely a joke. horrible coaches and uniforms. more kids do drugs then those who don't and there is an endless amount of drama. it is very hard to meet a ton of friends here considering there is about 50 kids in each grade. i met some of my best friends here however we all left this school for different high schools. no one really wants to stay at sacred heart. honestly its like a mediocre public school with uniforms and religion class Read less

I have to disagree with the comment about bullying and teacher favoritism wholeheartedly. my children switch the Sacred heart from the public schools for many reasons, one of them is my oldest was being bullied in the public school. we were worried about them starting a new school they have not attended
... Read more since 1st grade. would they fit in and be welcomed? the answer was a huge YES!!! children and teaches went out of their way to make them welcome and I have never seen a hint of bullying in either of my children's grades. faster than I had ever imagined, they made wonderful friends and felt completely at home. Scared Heart is a blessing for my family and we are grateful! Read less

This school has great kids and wonderful teachers. We are friendly and welcoming to everyone. Our buildings are in tip top shape and we all try to respect the great school we have. Classes are quietly attentive and the students really want to learn. This is my take on Sacred Heart School. And I love

Sacred Heart is a great school and we are thrilled with our child's experience at SHHS.

Read more standard academics.What are you getting for your money? just the fantasy( you are in some elite private school)...Your not! .My other son just started at Tabor/expensive,but its the real thing .My daughter decided to stay in Duxbury High (25th in the State for overall excellence).You are better off moving to a town with great schools than spending money here,The middle school staff is really the worst I have ever seen ..particularly the guidance or lack there of. They have a serious funding problem and those horrible nuns from the dark ages are allowed to hurt your kids with cruelty now (all though I bet they still wish they could thrash you) like the good old days!

My sons have attended Sacred heart since kindergarten. It is the best value for a private school education in Massachusetts. I attended St. Johns Preparatory School, and Sacred Heart compares very well academically to St Johns Prep at a more affordable price.

My daughter transferred here from a public high school and we are very happy to have made the move! The academics are top-notch...she is challenged every day and loves being in school with like-minded students. The students and teachers have been very welcoming and supportive. The school provides
... Read more many opportunities throughout the day for additional help when needed. In fact, a half-hour tutorial is built into the day to encourage students to meet with teachers. There is a new president overseeing all of the Sacred Heart Schools. She is dynamic and really making positive change. She is a good listener and welcomes parent input. In fact, she just sent out a survey asking for feedback. If parents have issues, they can bring them to the president for resolution. The facilities at the school are very well-kept, technology upgrades are taking place, and investments in the sports programs are being made. This is a school that has good things happening to it. People should feel good that, if they send their children there, they will receive an excellent education that will prepare them well for college and the real world. Read less
