The information on St. Theresa's on Great Schools is very outdated. The current principal is Mrs. Linda Schiller and she has completely rejuvenated this school!! Our enrollment jumped from 110 in the 2012-2013 school year to 140 + in just one school year. I love it here so much that I moved my two children from a good school to this one - a great school!! The principal is supportive and strives to make St. Theresa the best in every way. The staff works harder than any other group of teachers I have ever seen. The curriculum is challenging yet differentiated. The students are generally well behaved and work hard. It's truly an amazing place!

Judging by the misspellings in the other two reviews, you have to wonder whether this school is really doing its job!

I went to St Theresa, as did my entire family and all our children are currently enrolled. This is the best place to recieve a quality education with small class sizes and dedicated teachers who do not just care about their own paychecks-- I have never seen them go on strike. THAT is dedication. The staff here truly care about the children on an individual basis and their curriculum surpasses any public school, per my firsthand experiences. If your child needs extra focus or help in an area, they get it. The staff definitely strives to make the entire learning process a balance between life skills and book smarts. I do not believe faith is as strong a motivator for attending as the previous reviewer has written. We are not Catholic yet we chose the school for its offerings, safety, educational agenda and staff. Highly recommended

St Theresa is a very good school. Facilities are adequate but do not compete with publicly funded schools. Acadamics are very strong pre-k through 4. Middle school is moderately strong and the school scores above average on standardized testing. The decision for parochial school is faith based and whether you believe faith is an integral part of developing your childs potential. If this is a deciding factor St. Theresa has an excellent reputation over decades of developing the best in children academically and faithfully. Strong parent committment, dedicated staff, and support from the Sisters of IHM, and the parish.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
