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 currently has 78 students enrolled for the 2017-18 school year in grades preschool-sixth as of October 31, 2017.

Sacred Heart provides a quality Catholic education 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.

There are six highly qualified teachers for our pre-school through sixth grade classes. In addition, there is a music teacher, an art teacher, a gym teacher,  and a religion teacher.

Students in 4th, 5th and 6th grades take the Terra Nova standardized test. Scores are consistently at or above the state and Diocesan average. Interim reports are also conducted to measure students’ performance through each grading period.

Sacred Heart also offers accommodations to supplement the classroom curriculum for students with special needs.  Sacred Heart employs a speech teacher one day a week. We also have an LD tutor and a Title I teacher provided by Coshocton City Schools.

Sacred Heart School is able to offer a smaller class size than the traditional elementary school, and the attention to each individual student is enhanced. Our faculty is able to have a significant impact on the educational and moral development of their students. We are proud to see the school continue to play an important part in the future of our parish and county.
