Montreal, QC | Grades 7 - 12 | Shortlist
The Sacred Heart School is located near the heart of downtown Montreal in a beautiful historical building with antiques decorating the building. The school hosts boarding students in dormitories and is self-contained. Students must stay within the grounds during school hours unless they enrolled in senior grades. Students can either be dropped off by car, however, it is readily accessible by public transport.
Sacred Heart is located on the corner of Atwater and Docteur Penfield. While this may seem very close to Downtown Montreal, it is a very safe place and students are only allowed off of school grounds with parental consent. There is always a security guard because the safety and security of the girls are of the utmost priority. The school is also very accessible by public transportation, which means that your daughter will be able to get to and from school safely.
The school was very centrally located, at the heart of downtown but, despite this, it still felt like an island. The building itself is huge, but so are the school grounds. There is a lot of outdoor space. I never ventured far beyond the school grounds except when we were allowed to go get lunch out in secondary five. The school was easily accessible by public transit for my friends who lived on the West Island as well.
