Probably the first school in Chicago to offer Cantonese and now Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. Great curriculum that is always being updated to new and better standards. Devoted and caring faculty and staff.
St. Therese school offers a great education with scores to prove it. The principal and faculty really care about the children.
Living in downtown Chicago makes it fairly difficult to find an affordable high quality education. St. Therese offers everything I was looking for. The academics are second to none, extra curricular programs and sense of community afforded can not be beat. If it was not for St. Therese I would have moved out of the city.
advanced academics and extra cirricular programs for kids of all grades.
Outstanding academics, up to date technology, caring teachers and staff!
great education at an affordable price. The tradition that the school represents and the diversity it supports.
St. Therese Chinese Catholic School is a community within a community. There are second and third generation families in this school. The parents are involved, the teachers are attentive and caring and the alumni are genuinely interested in the welfare of the school. And there is a strong emphasis on academics and culture.
St. Therese offers a unique cirriculum, caring and involved faculty and teachers, and provides a supportive and nurturing enivronment for the children.
I love how the upper class take care of the lower class. I love the way the parents work together for the school. I love the way my son comes home and tells me all the things that he learned in math and especially science. I love being a 5th grade home room parent. I love the way the principal disciplines a pupil with sterness but yet kindness.
The teachers are nice and genuinely love the kids. Academics wise, it's one of the best!
Can't find any better than this. Children learn Cantonese and Mandarin (writing and reading) starting in preschool til 8th grade as well as conversational Spanish. 8th graders graduate with full year of HS algebra and geometry.
School is nicely located near the heart of Chinatown. The environment is great and lively. The teachers here are exceptionally well. They've all been at the school for many many teachers. The teachers all work hard and try to make sure the children graduate into a prestigious high school. The school attends mass at their church once a month and also attends all the other Catholic holidays. Children are taught well and discipline is a must for a school of this caliber.
