I am an alumni as well as a very proud parent of a daughter who just started her first year at Santa Teresita School. Believe it or not MY kindergarten teacher is now MY daughters kindergarten teacher! It is an honor and just an awesome experience to have your child learning from the same teacher I learned so much from. Not only is Santa Teresita a good school, but in my opinion it is the best. I learned my manners, education, and so much from there. I am glad I can now pass on the same to my children whom I will be sending there until they graduate. It is the best school I think there is in the middle of a small community. I really recommend parents to check out this school and consider sending their children there, coming from my experience I really recommend it. Good luck to you all and God Bless.

Santa Teresita School is a gem. It is a gem in Boyle Heights that cares for students and the community it surrounds. I am very proud to be part of this great organization that nurtures, seeks learning opportunities, and most of all wants students to be the best they can be. Santa Teresita School is a safe and wonderful place for students K-8 to pursue their dreams in all academic areas and the arts. Sister Mary Catherine is very supportive of music and the arts and this makes the DaCamara Society of Mount St. Mary's College and the Los Angeles Philharmonic partner with our school, and make musical dreams come true.

While many private schools are closing due to a decrease in enrollment and funding, Santa Teresita remains strong and its numbers are growing. Teachers, parents, and administrators are working delligently to ensure that this school remain the inner city oasis that it is. Safety, a solid curriculum, and faith-based nurturing await those who apply. Many students receive tuition assistance thanks to generous benefactors. Great place!
