Welcome from the Director of Schools
For over one hundred years Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton (SHS) has been dedicated to educating the whole child. SHS provides an education that fosters personal and active faith in God, deep respect for intellectual values, social awareness that impels to action, the building of a community as a Christian value, and personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom.
Sacred Heart is committed to the teachings of the Catholic Church while being an open community enriched by faculty, staff and a student body of diverse backgrounds who all strive for a culture rich in heritage and progressive in all areas of academics.
As you view our website, you will see that Sacred Heart Schools is a thoughtful, reflective, vibrant community with outstanding curricular and co-curricular programs. I hope you will have an opportunity to visit our sixty-four acre campus and discover the Sacred Heart spirit for yourself.
