I attended St. Theresa for a few years. In my opinion, this school is a highly rigid institution that puts a great deal of emphasis on religion, yet does not recognize blatantly unscrupulous behavior among its student body. I am a university student now, and looking back at my days at this school, I

My grades plummeted as my insecurity rose, and eventually I left the school with psychological wounds that still torment me(though greatly resolved). I feel the school can be academically stifling;I was left with a distaste for school work, even wishing to be home schooled. In conclusion, my personal experience was extremely negative, and I have struggled with confidence issues since my time there. Consider deeply, your decision as a parent to send your child to St. Theresa School. Read less

This was our first year coming to St. Theresa from a Montessori environment which worried me. The children are paired with a 'buddy' from another grade level so they learn from each other. Although the disciplined transition took some time for my child to adjust to, the school became a home away from
... Read more home quickly. The students treat each other kindly and care ffor each others as well as the student-teachers relationships. This year's new Principal, Sr. Caridad is AMAZING!. She is bright, happy and full of fresh ideas. All the children love her. The fundamental processes taught here educate the entire child, the whole child spiritually, emotionally and physically just as much as scholastically. I am very pleased and plan on continuing. The only thing I would like to see added is AP classes for students that excel at a higher level. Students are still challenged individually but it would be a nice addition. The ratio of teacher-student may be higher than expected at times but there are shared teachers in the same grades. If the class needs extra teachers, they are brought in from another area to assist.

My child currently attends this school. I was very shocked at the "student: teacher ratio" posted as "13:1." This is very inaccurate. There are more than 25 children in my child's KINDERGARDEN class; it only goes up with the higher grades. Parents are treated HORRIBLY at this school. The staff at the

Lastly, although in my short experience at this school the teachers my child has had have done their best to teach at the individual child's pace, it is a very academically disappointing school. Moral: do not send your child there. This will be our last year at this school. Read less

This is a great school! St. Theresa focuses on the entire child. Their academic, religious, social and emotional development. Both my children went there and have done very well in highschool. I went there and was so pleased to see the continued family environment that was present 30 years ago.
