I am a parent of one of the students at St.Therese's School,and I also used to go here. I just want to say Mr.Varsolona is got to be one of the best principals I have ever known, He is always there when you need him, He is very understanding but yet at the same time He lets you know when you step out of line.

My child will be going into 2nd grade this year and has been enrolled at St Therese since Pre-K. It is a wonderful school, and she is learning at a rate well above average for her age. The teachers and principal's dedication is phenominal and I would remove her from this school at all. As a product of the Paterson Public School system, and knowing other children that attend Paterson Public schools and their parents, my child is getting an education that the Paterson Public school system cannot attempt to match!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
