St. Theresas Catholic School
Grateful to: School leader

I think the school leadership deserves 'thanks' because they do try. I am not sure what is holding them back from making the right calls with certain situations. I hope it changes in the future.

In middle school, there is only one ineffective teacher so I put somewhat effective to balance it out.

Amount of homework: Don't know

It's hard to say. It's not always the amount, but the timing, the quality and the curriculum you also need to consider. It's hard to say it's simply too much or too little.

While the school does try to develop traits, some teachers are less willing in middle school to partner with parents.

I would say yes, the school does develop respect. They expect respect to be given upon greeting the staff and administration and the staff treats the students with equal respect for the most part.

Develops empathy: Neutral

On the positive, this year is supposed to be about kindness. In middle school there is a teacher that yells, is condescending and at times rude.

The school develops honesty and integrity through the religion teacher and the President who takes time to teach these concepts during all-hand assemblies. Fairness is not given in some classes as mentioned.

While the majority of the teachers in the middle school are very good and try very hard, the language arts instruction is sub-par. Even though my child is on the A honor roll, I can say I have serious concerns about the methods used in this program. I will say that we have enjoyed the PSIA involvement, the sports have been wonderful and the community at large is very respectful and friendly.

You would think with all the negative posts about the faculty and administration of the school on this site that the students' education would suffer. Sure doesn't seem to be the Case... 2015 PSIA District Results: 1st place Elementary & 1st place Middle School: Elementary 552 St. Theresa s 411 Regents 257.5 St. Andrews 257 Trinity 122.5 St. Gabriel 27 Uplift Summit Middle School 763 St. Theresa s 228 Trinity 189 St. Gabriel 156 Regents 130 Uplift Summit 70 St. Andrews

This school is a wonderful choice for families looking for Catholic faith, and Educational Advancement. 95% of the teachers are well skilled in both areas (no school is perfect!). One other critical aspect of a student's education is social development. The school and parent community create opportunities that allow the students bond and get along other than in an 8-3 classroom. This is one of the few catholic schools in Austin (if not the only one), that recognizes the importance of social development outside curriculum. Again, no school is perfect or will meet everyone's need. This school is perfect for my family because they meet these three aspects. GO TIGERS!! St. Theresa Pray for this lovely school community!
