About Sacred Heart School
THE SCHOOL HISTORY
The Sacred Heart School System came into being in 1968 out of the founder's fondness for children. As good fortune would have it, the case of closing a nearby preschool was brought to her attention. The owners had decided to migrate to the United States so they offered the school for sale. Mrs. Rosario Tambunting-Juan saw it as an opportunity to put her plan and dream into execution. She bought the school, established it as her own school and named it the Sacred Heart Nursery and Preschool. Thus, in June 1968, the school came into being, starting with an enrollment of thirty students, two teachers and a consultant on academic matters. By mid-year the enrollment had risen to fifty and at year's end to seventy. During the years that followed, more rooms were added along with facilities and equipment like library books, recreational apparatus, and the school gained stature and prominence, the administration thought it wise to seek government recognition.
Since then, many students have graduated from Sacred Heart school, each one imbued with the high ideals of the school, the awareness of finer possibilities and further goals, the sense of freedom and the open road ahead. On her part, the Owner/Director was pleased with the commitment and responsibility she adopted. She is involved in supplying one of man's basic needs which is education and sharing with others her enthusiasm to improve and contribute to continuing process the education of the Filipino child. At present, Sacred Heart School has 6 branches, namely: SHS Makati, SHS Malabon, SHS Binondo, SHS Sun-Valley, SHS Caloocan, and SHS Valenzuela.
