Last month’s visiting team from the Sacred Heart Commission on Goals commended the student experience while recommending more time for planning, connecting among faculty and staff, and finding ways to incorporate the Goals and Criteria.

“One overarching recommendation was to create more time to be with students and each other as faculty,” theology teacher Paul Pryor Lorentz said. “We have great programs, but sometimes there is not enough time to plan it out.”

On the first workday back from Winter Break, faculty and staff plan to address the recommendations, according to Lorentz.

“Having the student experience be most important for all of us felt like a really strong commendation and very much in line with the mission of the school — to serve each child,” Head of School Rachel Simpson said.
