Sacred Heart School is a fully accredited Catholic elementary school located in the east central Ohio community of Coshocton. Situated on hill overlooking the city’s downtown, Sacred Heart serves as the only parish and Catholic school for the entire area representing Coshocton, Riverview, and Ridgewood school systems. Sacred Heart celebrated its 111th year in the Coshocton community in 2018.
Sacred Heart currently has 72 students enrolled for the 2018-19 school year in grades preschool-sixth as of October 31, 2017.
Sacred Heart provides a balanced curriculum for students in grades preschool through grade six. Our student to teacher ratio is 1:12. Our student population is 98% white, 1% Hispanic, and 1% Asian. Forty-three percent of our students are not members of any Catholic parish.
Sacred Heart School is able to offer a smaller class size than the traditional elementary school which enables our faculty to have significant impact on the educational development of our students. Sacred Heart’s emphasis is on moral development, service to others and leadership skills. We are able to offer a safe and disciplined environment. We are proud to see the school continue to play an important part in the future of our parish and county. We are a Catholic tradition and academic excellence in a community grounded in faith, along with good stewardship of resources and a strong preparation for further education. We strive to make a positive impact in the lives of our students and our families. Transforming lives is at the heart of what we do and our students inspire us on a daily basis!
