The environment at St. Teresa School is a very positive and loving one. The education my child received is second to none, but it's the family camaraderie that leaves a lasting impression on every graduating class. Principal Carney cares a great deal for her students, as though each child were her own,

I pulled my child out of two different public middle schools, where bullying and failing grades were all too common, before coming to STS-- and I'm so glad we did! Through the staff's loving guidance, my child has become a confident and more independent student, ready to take on high school with a new attitude. This is what a great school should do-- prepare you for a great future! I found the school to be very affordable comparatively, and worth every single penny! Read less

My daughter went to St. Teresa School and I was surprised to see some of the remarks and the rating it received. I have to disagree with some of the comments. From my past experience with the school and listening to other parents comments while there most people love this school. They agree that since
... Read more the principal has been there the school has greatly improved. I feel the school made my daughter a better person. She had some personal difficulties and received the support she needed from the teachers and the princilpal there. It made me be able to go and do my job knowing that my child was in a healthy and caring enviroment. I don't think my daughter could have been in a better place or gotten a better education than she did there. There are problems in every school. Obviously anyone who doesn't get the results they want will have something negative to say. The student who hates it there should go to another school. Your parents pay for you to go there...go to another school "for free" if you're not happy. I hope that more parents become aware of this website and make some positive comments and gives the school, teachers and principal the credit they so deserve. Read less

My son has been in this school since the 3rd grade. I have to agree with a lot of other posts. Caring teachers, but discipline is lacking in some areas.
