My child goes to Westwood, this is the second year attending...so far...it has been wonderful. It is on average $215.00 per month, (after the initial fees are paid) great enviroment for the kids and parents alike...give them a call...you won't regret it.

The tuition for Sacred Heart:

Catholics- 1,250 a year.
Non-Catholics- 3,600 a year.

Pretty good prices, if I do say so myself. I suggest Sacred Heart.

Check out both of these. Make sure that they are approved and meet guidelines. Be sure that credits are issued that are recognized by all state colleges and universities.
I AGREE THAT THE PUBLIC SCHOOL does not meet the needs of its students. When they took away neighborhood schools and made large ones-it was not for the benefit of the students. The Junior high school is OUT OF control-very bad place .Not good also riding the school busses. K-4 seems to work well-then 5 & 6th grade center-oh my-not good.Senior high has a better working relationship with students and parents. They have their act together but getting to that point is hard. I taught there-not an easy job. I moved to a smaller district and am very content here. Good luck!

The lack of higher education and then you must travel to get to a Catholic High school for further education or transfer to the PB school system, bothers me.
Scared Heart is a good school.

The Poplar Bluff schools aren't that bad. I've got kids in the schools and teacher friends. I've got one teacher friend who used to teach inner-city high school and they said Poplar Bluff school kids are cake and are respectful compared to what they're used to. If someone thinks the P.B. schools are bad, they really need to get out more and see the sort of environment some kids have to go to school in. You'd come back running to Poplar Bluff. You can't judge the schools based on what you read on here. These boards are full of the stereotypical illiterate hillbillies you hear about on T.V. and think they can't possibly exist.

Not sure about the Catholic school, but Westwood uses Abeka, which is a program many homeschoolers use. Save your money on tuition, buy that program and teach at home.

I remember going to the high school (back in the '80s) to pick up my daughter, and being rudely bumped by a cursing high schooler. I still have trouble with that shoulder too. I've heard more horror stories too.

WBA is not an accredited school, be very careful of your decision to send your children there. They could find it harder to get into the colleges of their choice. I have also seen several students fall behind their age group while attending. The smaller atmosphere is nice, but not always beneficial. It is difficult to get into Sacred Heart, but well worth the tuition for a solid corner stone for your child's education.

The reason those schools are deemed better is because those people who can afford to send their child there are caring, responsible parents who put a focus on education. When you let in the general public your going to have a lot more chaos. 90% of problems in schools are caused by the same kids over and over whose parents are sitting at home collecting a check with no focus on education. They let their kids do whatever they want, hang out with whoever they want and they virtually have no supervision. Just my opinion

I agree! thats why I wont send my kids there to many problelms and drugs and kids getting beat up all the time. I have just heard to much. I can make a sacrifice and pay for my child to go to school, or send to Twin Rivers thats a little far but I hear thats a good school and I dont have to pay for it.

Both Catholic and None Catholic are $3,600 per 1st. child and lower for the second and so on. there is a meeting Wedn. night to inform the school about the problem with people not paying there fare share. It's about time. I have a son that attends there and it is a good school. I'm sure Westwood Baptist is worth looking in to also.

If you put your son in any catholic school, keep an eye on that priest.

This is totally false. 90% of our graduates have gone to college and have done great. Almost every public school student we get is way behind. Great atmosphere, great academics!

Just because parents are rich, does not mean they are good parents. Those kids are raised by that school and after care. Not by there parents. Paying money makes them think they are doing something special for there child. Spend time with them if you want to be a good parent. The people posting how wonderful the place is, are the ones paying for it and running it. The school does whatever the parents say that supports it. Very small with a limited amount of JR high kids, that would be a fool to do any thing wrong. Kids are not prepared for the real world, school doesnt offer half of what public school does. Your children have to learn to be in the real world, sad but true.

I went to Sacred Heart for 10 years. I am now attending college. I did transfer to Poplar Bluff High school after I graduated from SH. The transition was not bad at all. My whole freshman and sophomore years were a repeat of my 7th and 8th grade years at Sacred Heart. Great school. And the Priests are not child molesters. It angers me when people say that. I do know people who turned out just fine who went to Westwood too though. But Sacred Heart really was fantastic.

Depends if you are a pagan or a disciple of Christ.
I would probably go with Westwood.

We're not Catholic, but my husband and I agree that if we're still living in this area when our daughter starts school we want her to go to Sacred Heart.
