Oh brother, the parents are "brainwashed" with each other's mentality. Yes it is catholic school, but it should offer more than what the children are getting. Yes they prepare them for catholic high school, but does the school prepare them for "the reality of life's real issues", or do they just "sweep it under a carpet".

Saint Teresa is a fantastic school! The staff cares and my daughter is excelling there due in part to there care and concern.

Saint Teresa is a fantastic school with a tremendous focus on faith and service to the community; teaching children that an education is not just about the knowledge gained from classwork and text books. The administration promotes the idea of the well rounded student. In addition, I love the school's anti-bullying policy. Some schools claim to not tolerate bullying...Saint Teresa is an example of what a zero tolerance policy environment really looks like.

I am a public school teacher & my children attend St. Teresa's. While it is true that the property doesn't have a lot of 'glitz' (But technology-wise they surpass many schools) the focus is on academics & character. Standards at this school are high & it is a little school with a big heart. (Sorry- stolen from someone's previous post- it's true) Students are very prepared when they get to high school. I think when searching for a school, delve a bit deeper than PE 1x a week or the street it's on. My oldest graduated from St. Teresa's & is at Paul Vi. The teachers there say great things about the students from St. Teresa's. Great idea! -when searching for grade schools- call high schools & ask them about the preparedness of kids who arrive from grade schools you're looking at. Catholic School is not for everyone- STRS is not for everyone- but it fits our families' standards and priorities perfectly. (But admittedly if busing is important for your family, you're out of luck. We use the before and after care- and it works for us.) One more thing...I agree with the person who posted on Jan. 8- Many schools have merit- it just depends on what is a good 'fit' for your family.

I would like to respond to the person talking about "super school", you mean a merged school? who cares. My children go to the merged school and have made friends and are happy children. There are only two classrooms per grade, so I dont know what you are talking about when you said you lose a handle on things. The parent involvement is wonderful and the atmosphere is friendly and small. So I dont think one school is better than the other. And for you to try and down another catholic school nearby is wrong. I will give St Theresas all stars, because even though I have no children there, I do not doubt that it is a great school, just like ours is.

Well we do all have a right to voice our opinions- and this previous post has compelled me to do so. In my opinion- St. Teresa School is not "just another Roman Catholic School that is run [by] a sister." There is a heart in this school that I challenge you to find in another- yes, the education that my children are getting is fabulous- yes, the teachers are all more than qualified and attentive and the principal is 'hands on' and on top of all that is happening in the school- but this small charming school is special. We are so fortunate to have been able to stay as a small school and not become one of these "super" schools that the diocese has created- where it is difficult to keep a close handle on all that is happening there. There's an intimacy here- where relationships are formed and everyone truly cares about my kids and they are better for it. There is also a rich tradition with the IHM sisters having run the school since the beginning. There's really no comparing to other private Roman Catholic Schools- a Catholic education is a good education- but a St. Teresa Education is a step above!!! Just my opinion.

This is a great school! Small,caring environment and it has a strong Catholic identity. St. Teresa's is the school most parents would wish they could find for their kids! We love it here.

My child loves the new principal at St. Teresa's! She will not leave the school until she gets to say goodbye to her! The school has a caring, dedicated faculty and I am so happy to have such a great school for the Catholic education of my daughter.

The March 23 post is oviously someone who was a 'favorite' of the last principal of St. Teresa's. I think the new principal is wonderful for the school! She loves children and treats everyone in the same, caring manner -- no favorites whatsover. She is an asset to the school!

This school use to be a really great school until the new principal took over. She doesn't know how to interact with kids and singles kids out and will go after them. Very disappointed because this school use to be a good school.

I went to public school my hole life,back then you were just a number you only new your class mates not much about the next grade unless you were a street kid. I placed my child in St.Teresa's the school is amazing! Everyone knows you by name from K-8 the parents/vollenteers treat you like family.Teachers are always keeping you upto date on everything I don't have to wait for a progress report if my child is having trouble in a subject they tell you that day! The principal and the IHMA Sisters are fantastic not only is religion taught but, morals,self disapline,self respect this has build my childs confidence.There is not enuff room on this page to tell you everything just come out and see for your self. Come and sit thru a class or ask the children they are more then happy to tell you.The school speaks for it's self!

I recently graduated from St. Teresa's and when I saw that you could review on this sight, I thought I would share how great this school is. All the teachers know the children by name, as does the principal. Everyone is so kind and friendly. The teachers are always there for your children, even after Graduation. They are the most respectful people and respect what you have to say. They also have sports programs there that are excellent. They have volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, and track. The coaches are outstanding! I want to say thank you to the faculty at St. Teresa's for a great 9 years!

St.Teresa's has a excellent academic program. Your child is not known as a number sitting in a chair they are known on a first name bases buy all students from k-8 every child is like a big buddy to the younger children. The parent involvment is exellent as a parent you are never in the dark about your child it's like getting a proggress report everyday. I always know what my child is doing or not doing or what is lacking in studys. Teachers are excellent in keeping you up to date and always available to answer questions you may have. I give St. Teresa A+
