A very close knit community. Both of my children graduated and went on to do well at a college prep high school. Parents need to expect to be involved, any school cannot do it all alone. Would highly recommend St. Therese.

I like the relatively small size of the school and the community effort the school emits. The school staff are easy to talk to and are willing to help on almost every front.

I love that in a time of educational cutbacks my children experience art, music, math, reading and other standard curriculum in a positive and creative way.

The commaradiere amongst students is wondeful. It is a close knit group and they love to do well. The teachers care about each student and what matters to them.

Two of our grandchildren attend ST. Therese starting with kindergarden and are far ahead of public schools in learning. We are very pleased.

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.
