    This school has a small nurturing environment. Teachers and staff is very friendly. Students seem to like what they are learning. Great School.

    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.
