My son attended Santa Teresa High. He was accepted at UCLA, UCSB and SDSU. . If your child is someone who is assertive and independent, Santa Teresa should serve as a good foundation for a top university. My son also attended summer school at DeAnza College during his 4 years at Santa Teresa, which ...  Read more

I am definitely happy that I attended ST for my high school career. I am about to begin my senior year and I must say that the last 3 years have had its ups and downs but overall it's still a great school.

Honestly, I've only been here for two years, but I actually really like the school. The teachers are all responsible and are professional in the subjects in which they teach.

I moved in July, and ...  Read more

An excellent school, great teachers. This school could be better with more elective options for their students.

To succeed at ST, the student has to take initiative. ST simply doesn't have the funding to mandate and provide SAT prep classes and intimate one-on-one time with each student. It's much larger than many private schools in the Bay Area and hold students from a multitude of socioeconomic households. ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
