Most teachers are good. Administrator does a poor job. Considering this is a school for children, there is NO safe place for a playground. This school's assets are the parents and families who are truly good Catholics whom unfortunately are not heard.

Teachers are fine. it's the leadership and the curriculum. Too much and too intense to make them retain anything. Principal will not change his ways.

My daughter attends this school and I am writing this review solely because of something I witnessed at one of her sports practices. Her coach wanted to play a game during practice and asked all the kids to pick a country they wanted to be. Kids were shouting out Missouri! Texas! Florida! My daughter shouted Bolivia! No wait! Ivory Coast! Which sadly, I myself didn't realize was a country. I could see the disappointment on the coach's face, then the relief when he finally heard someone name an actual country. I already knew that my decision to choose this school was worth all the sacrifices. That moment simply reinforced it.

I have known about St Theresa Catholic School since before it opened, and from the onset, the principal along with his team of teachers and administration have been, and are delivering a top notch education - one that competes with schools on a national level and has been featured in the Washington Times. I say all of this as somebody who is a trained educator with two Master's degrees in the field (Curriculum and Instruction as well as Library Science). Visit St. Theresa Catholic School. You will see for yourself what all the great hype is about. It is a solid program with invaluable leadership, vision, and remarkable standards.

We were one of the founding parents at STCS four years ago and have never regretted making this important decision for our kids. I am glad to say that our children like school (most days, anyway :). They come home excited to explain their latest science or religion project, eager to show off their newest poem or teach us some Latin. They beat us as chess and enjoy sports and music. They get a taste of everything at STCS in a beautiful and orderly environment. The staff is fantastic and the families are close-knit. Although the school may not appeal to everyone (some people don't like the formal uniforms, homework or Latin), I think every parent interested in a strong liberal arts education for their kids should check it out.

STCS is a great school. The video says it all (http://sttheresacatholicschool.org/video-gallery). Rigorous academics. Strong leadership. Caring teachers. Beautiful facilities. It was the right choice for our kids. They are happy and engaged and have critical thinking skills that will last them a lifetime!

I must confess, I did not choose St. Theresa for its classical curriculum. I chose it because it was the nearest Catholic school I could find for my son and the principal impressed me as a scholar and an educator during our open house visit. However, after two years at the school, I can honestly say I am a convert. Not only does our family experience continual conversion of heart through the strong spiritual and character development offered to both students and parents, I have witnessed the power of this unique classical program. While the kids in our neighborhood come home reciting the words to the newest Justin Bieber song, my son comes home reciting poetry and Latin chants. While his friends are reading Captain Underpants and Judy Moody, my son is reading classics like Charlotte's Web and the Princess and the Goblin, and even better, able to talk about the deeper universal themes of the books (a skill he honed in his literature circle). He is not afraid of performing and speaking in public (a skill he has practiced in his rhetoric classes) and is overall an incredibly well-rounded kid (though, as a parent, I take a little credit for that!). I am so glad we chose STCS.

My child has been with St. Theresa Catholic School since Pre-K. It has been a good experience. The teachers are nice and supportive and always available to understand our needs and concerns. The school is new - this is their 4th year, and still has growing pains - with parents and the administration. My child is not special needs but might be if sent to public school so we are happy for the past three years. The school cannot yet handle special needs students because they are new and staff is small. But the curriculum is very good...they recite and memorize poetry since Pre-k and not nursery rhymes like most schools but actual poets like Robert Frost. They know all 50 states by kindergarten. I have a niece in 4th grade in public school and she says they have not learned these things yet. All in all we are happy with the school and recommend to parents who are serious about their children's education...serious and willing to put effort in

My kids have attended this school for several years and it has been the best experience I could have hoped for. Not only are all the teachers and staff passionately committed to their faith, they love all their students wholeheartedly and give the kind of personal attention any parent would hope for from a private Catholic school. The curriculum is rigorous and unique, emphasizing classical distinctives such as poetry and Latin at an early age. Families are encouraged to be involved and develop strong relationships with other school families. We love STCS and are so glad we chose this school for our kids!

Prior to our child's entrance to kindergarten, we researched schools in our area. St. Theresa Catholic School in Sugar Land uniquely offers a Classical education and has been a blessing. The curriculum has far exceeded our expectations and our child has grown both intellectually and spiritually by leaps and bounds.
