    We are in our third year at Sacred Heart. My son is in first grade now and we have had a great experience with all of his teachers. It has been a nice combination of academics and learn through play. In JK he was taught spanish music and computers which is hard to find in a JK in Winnetka. He loves school and has matured into a polite caring little boy. There are lots of opportunities for parents to be involved both inside and outside the classroom. We have been thrilled with our experience there!

    Sacred Heart School is a wonderful academic environment. The leadership is excellent as is the parental involvement. Although we live in an area where the public school are good we chose SHS because they nurture the whole child... spirit and the mind.
