School History

In August 1986 the Foundation for Catholic Education Saba was founded and relocated to St. John’s to cater to the growing school population of Saba. The Sacred Heart School is the one and only primary school on the island. The school welcomes and respects all denominations. Parents who do not wish for their child to follow the religious instruction can send in a written letter stating this.

School Population
With the start of this academic school year 2019-2020, we started with 156 students and is
steadily growing. The students are divided in 9 heterogeneous groups.

Our aim is for students to accomplish independency through our teaching and become their inspiration and driving force of their development.

Although English is the language of instruction, Dutch is being taught as a foreign language from
Grade 3-6 and via TPR Dutch is taught in K1-Gr. 2.
