St. Therese Elementary School5

My children went to this school when it was St. Therese. Since the merger with Mt. Carmel this past year, a few faces have changed, but the quality of education has not. This is a great school. All of the staff treat the children like their very own and are committed to encouraging and training them to be responsible adults. For them, this is truly a calling. The school merger has made it possible to have an excellent education while having lower tuition costs for families. Mt. Carmel and St. Therese parishes have done a wonderful thing by keeping Catholic education going as a combined school.
This school and parish is very unwelcoming. It is under new administration that is not well thought through and does not provide the best facilities needed for a well rounded education. I wouldn't suggest that anyone enrolled their child here. It is very primative education.
This is a great school. All of the staff from the principal to the secretary really care about the kids. This is not just a job for them, it is a calling. This past year, it was decided that St. Therese would merge with Mt. Carmel and this just shows what a commitment both Mt. Carmel and St. Therese show - both parishes (this includes staff, priests, and families) wanted to continue Catholic education and wanted to support the best possible education while keeping the tuition affordable for all families and they have succeeded by coming together to form the new Mt. Carmel-St. Therese interparish school. The tireless efforts of all involved with this consolidation just shows what Mt. Carmel-St. Therese is made of and I am proud to have my kids at this school. The education is excellent! And the people are great!
This is a wonderful school that we are so glad to be a part of. The families, faculty and students are extremely helpful, respectful and welcoming to all. The principal greets every student every morning and loves them all. The education, sports, and music opportunities offered by St. Therese is outstanding.
This school continuously produces kids ready for the upper grades (7th and up), while fostering a caring, but challenging environment. The school also involves the parents in ways they can be a part of their child's education, but tailored to the parent's strengths and abilities. I am so glad we found this gem of a school. More people need to know about this great environment.
