Faculty and Staff

The faculty at Sacred Heart School is comprised of professional, experienced teachers who are dedicated to educating and nurturing our students. We have very little turnover among our faculty and staff. Because of this there is a sense of community among our faculty that contributes to the warm, caring environment of our school.

Our teachers are also involved with the students after school in sports, clubs, homework help and the After-Care program. The teachers get to know the students very well and strong bonds develop between them during the students’ years at Sacred Heart.
