  • I recommend this school to everyone now that a previous (...) has left the picture thus changing the overall atmosphere with a bright promising future ahead.The staff is knowledgeable and willing to help in any way possible. After doing some basic research St Luke's also appears to be a wonderful school. Same curriculum as Sacred Heart that is set by the Archdiocese of Chicago. Cost at St Luke's is substantially more than Sacred Heart with mandatory fund raising. I like Sacred Heart. What a wonderful alternative to the public schools in the area, Look at the areas public school ratings on this site.

  • I do not recommend this school to anyone! Enrollment is down and fundraisors are non-stop. The facility does nothing to resolve issues in the classroom out of fear of loosing students. If your looking for a priavate school in the area I would recommend Saint Luke's. They have a lot of things Sacred Heart does not including air-condition, band and a faculty that cares and resolves problems
