    This school is simply amazing. Everyone feels welcomed at Sacred Heart. Very strong academic program. Girls come from great families.

    The Convent of the Sacred Heart is hands down an amazing school. I have attended Sacred Heart since the age of five and enjoyed every minute of it. Although rumors spread about the school being a place where bullying is present against people who do not have much money that is entirely false (from previous post). I am on scholarship and everyone knows and they do not care. I will not deny that there is obviously the petty bullying of a second grader or a seventh grader once in a while I have been a victim of it. However it is the same as any other school your child my attend and Sacred Heart truly helped me address the situation and handle it in a proper manner. What Sacred Heart students truly care about is my values my beliefs and my intellect. Any daughter would be lucky to attend Sacred Heart and the education that your daughter will receive is guaranteed to be superb. I have become truly a better person since attending Sacred Heart.

    i hate this school. I left this school last year. The academics are far superior at my new school. The athletic program is not good either at Sacred Heart. It is not worth the money it is very expensive and not worth it. There is a lot of bullying in middle school and high school. The head of the middle school is not very good at her job and you can tell that the teachers are miserable along with the students. I didn't enjoy the school at all. I dont wear very expensive clothes and i was therefore bullied. The education athletics and social atmosphere is not worth the tuition. It was not challenging there were no strong leaders either.

    CSH is the most prestigious well-rounded girls school in the city. It teaches girls how to be good at whatever they want to do. Most importantly it teaches them to be good people unlike other all-girls schools such as Nightingale Chapin Spence and Brearly. Being that it is a very difficult school to get into the girls who attend are intelligent kind generous loving people who are very welcoming something else you don't find at other girls schools. The teachers are well-educated and are there to help their students. The facilities are breath-taking. If you would like your daughter not only to be intelligent but a good person with good values all around CSH is the right school for her. It's guaranteed that your daughter won't find another school as excellent in every way as CSH. Girls are on a much higher level academically and spiritually than girls from other schools.

    I love Sacred Heart! It is the best school in the whole wide world! I love it and I definately would give it 1 million stars!

    I graduated from there and I would definitely say thatan overwhelming majority of the experienced by my fellow alumin were wonderful. The school has helped to shape many leaders in our world and at the student level it is not as easy to sree why certain decisions are made. However I must reiterate the fantastic experience I had and the pride that I have in being part of the larger Sacred Heart network. Currently I am working on my Master's in Urban Planning and I am an analyst with the Department of education in new york City and I run my own business.

    I totally disagree with the person who left the prior comments. Sacred Heart is a wonderful school. My daughter could not have gotten a better education anywhere else. The school is physically beautiful as well and an excellent learning environment. The academics are challenging and the quality of teaching is very high.

    This is by far the best Catholic private girls school in NYC. Sacred Heart truly teaches the girls to be well-rounded while instilling moral values and the highest standard of academics.

    overall my experience was wonderful but pointless rules enforced by the administrations sometimes stifled students' creativity ability to help the community and happiness.

    The school so far has been incredible. The have the same curriculm as the other elite private schools in New York with the addition of teaching to the heart and soul of each child. Any of the activities that one wishes are available as they should be at a school charging this much in tuition. One other factor in chosing this school is their presevation of innocence longer than the other schools and the strong sense of community.

    Our daughter has thrived at CSH. The curriculum truly educates the whole child--mentally spiritually and physically. We have seen our daughter's confidence soar because of the attention of the devoted staff and through the wonderful friendships that she has made. Our daughter is in the lower school and the curriculum has been perfectly age-appropriate; in Kindergarten the curriculum moves slowly which was a perfect transition for our daughter to academic-based learninTheriety of our daughter's day--moving from drama to language to religion classes--every day packs in exciting opportunities to learn. The parents are dedicated yet friendly and 'down-to-earth'. The parent's association is an impressive organization organizing everything from traditional fund-raisers to projects that truly help out the community and the world at large.

    Personally having gone here this school was fantastically well rounded for me. The all girl experience was something my classmates and me loved and maybe took for granted. The grade grows close allowing new kids to even become part of this united group of girls helping eachother in any way. The fact that this school has a network is very interesting even offering the chance to study in the numerous Sacred Heart schools across the globe.
