The faculty and staff are outstanding. My daughter's kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Brown is just wonderful and my daughter is learning math and reading while having fun. I recommend this school to everyone, the student/teacher ratio is a huge selling factor.

Please note Mrs. Houseman is more than involved, she is a teacher at the school. The school has a great deal of potential, but isn't really interested in fulfilling this potential.

My daughter started at this school in grade K. She is now in the first grade and loves the staff and the other children. THe school is the perfect size to have your child maintain their own identiy while learning in a group setting.

My son attended STS from kindergarten through eighth grade. He is now 24 and in the Doctor of Clinical Psychology program at LaSalle University. STS gave him a great start. The teachers did everything possible to make learning an enjoyable and profitable experience. When you are working with a learning disabled student and take the time to make sure you reach him, that is dedication. Being able to talk about faith and God is another plus. I am still involved in the school and see so many good things happening that I am encouraged about the future of our children.

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.
