    My school is going through a transition...lower staff. My kids still love it there so that is why we are still there.

    This is our first year at St. Theresa. My son is currently in prek and we have had a wonderful experience! We love the small community feel of this school Communication has been great. Religion in school I find has made a positive impact for our entire family. Looking forward to many more years.

    We are not Catholic yet my son felt very comfortable at St. Theresa and graduated from St.T with honors. It is an accepting loving but rigid environment. Some kids do great at Montessori and flourish in a laid back permissive environment. Other kids do better in a structured environment with definite due dates and consequences for missed due dates which resemble what they will experience one day in the workforce. As a parent it is your job to know what kind of environment best suits your child. The teachers at St. T are awesome! They are caring concerned will help out in finding tutoring if needed. The sports are great! This school will make a succesful young man or woman out of your kid!

    St. Theresa Catholic School is a wonderful environment. We are members of the Parish and our two children attend school. This entire campus is our second home my children love coming to school and have loved every teacher they have had. The curriculum is demanding and the teachers are dedicated to helping form not only an intelligent child but a compassionate responsible child. As a parent there are many ways to become an active part of the community. Like any other school the more you invest the greater the return. I would recommend this school to anyone.

    We are in our fifth year at St. Theresa and we are extremely pleased with our decision to send our child there. Every teacher we have had has shown exceptional dedication and passion. It is obvious that they love what they do and that they care deeply about the children. The parent community is strong active and supportive. Through our involvment with the school we have become friends with some truely wonderful people.

    I don't recommend this school.I didn't like how it changed my son .It was very frustrating and horrible experience. I don't think teachers are qualified enough or the admenistration either . I don't recommend it .

    My son attended STCS for 6 months before I finally pulled him. He went from being a happy little boy to someone who didn't want to go to school. I felt his spirit was being squashed right in front of my eyes. After I started paying attention I noticed most of the kids walk around like zombies...going through the motions of life & just getting through. It was all very sad. STCS was about rigidity & rules. Not about empowering a child to be the best they can be. I was very disappointed & would not recommend this school. We went down the street & blossomed!

    I graduated from St. Theresa in 2002 and though I did gain a remarkable education that prepared me to continue my schooling at St. Mary's High School I was only one of several who exhibited social problems with several cliques that developed over the nine years that I was there. I saw some effort from the staff to try to work on these issues but nothing seemed to help.

    Saint Theresa Catholic School has provided an exceptional educational experience for my son in Pre-Kindergarten. The Spiritual focus coupled with academic excellence has laid the groundwork for his future success. I value and appreciate the love and care of the staff toward children. Saint Theresa is truly a community of compassion and care. I am blessed to be a parent of one child and look forward to the day when my next child will attend school there.

    This is a fantastic school with a kind and nurturing environment. Parents are very involved in the daily activities and teacher communication is great. Religion is a factor in everyday learning and values are instilled. The school is not large but large enough for diversity. Grading scales are more rigid than public schools and students are encouraged to excel. It is a positive place to leave your kids for 7 hours everyday!
