All the kids in the recess yard stop in place and scamper back into the school building at the ringing of a cowbell…More by school staff. That could be due to the standards of disciplined behavior at this Catholic school. It isn't an austere environment though; the front entrance has welcome signs posted in 13 different languages, and kids seem to be given enough space to be kids at playtime.
While many other private schools have struggled to attract parents able to pay tuition, Sacred Heart has maintained a high enrollment of about 450, demonstrating they can compete with the well-reputed Bayside public schools.
