    "You would be much better off saving your money and putting your child in one of the Alhambra public schools and they have much more to offer and are run so much better than STS. The leadership at the school is unqualified and lacking the appropriate credentials, Some teachers are also lacking current valid credentials. There are no music, computer or art classes available to the kids and teachers recommend hiring private tutors instead of helping struggling students themselves. Algebra is only taught to a select few 8th graders when at public schools all students are required to take algebra. Large class sizes and only one aide for multiple grade levels. No playground equipment or even grass. There is a high turn over of staff from year to year. The students aren't even allowed to go to weekday mass anymore. if you are set on a Catholic education, definitely look at another one such as All Souls or St. Luke."

    "This school is in need of improvement in so many areas it is a wonder how there are any students left. I agree with the last review. Most of the wonderful teachers who made this school special are gone. The turn over in staff in the past two years only makes one wonder how the school is to survive. Without these teachers, the school has lost all that once made it special. The low enrollment leaves the school without money for updated books and supplies. Everything comes from the parents pockets. The lack of valid credentials of the administration and teachers leaves one only to wonder why you would have your children in this school. I took my children out and to my surprise, the local public school has so much more to offer in the areas of music, technology, help for struggling students and students who are gifted as well. The math program is far superior to that at STS. Also as a parent you need to look at the standardized test scores of the school. STS ranks average or slightly above. Your child needs to be in a school with high academic standards proved by test scores. St. Therese should not be a consideration until it is run by qualified administrators."

    "St. Therese is a wonderful school! As an educator in the public school system, I am blessed that I am able to send my child to a catholic school. The staff is dedicated and goes beyond the call of duty. Father Phillip and David are amazing humanbeings! The children truly respect and love them. Keep up the amazing work and dedication. People who slander parochial schools have no place at St. Therese! For the individual who posted the last message, you need lots of prayer and positive thoughts. Education starts in the home...stop projecting your anger onto others. Remember, it takes a village to raise a child!"

    "St. Therese in Alh ambra: I read all the reviews and could not agree more with such somments as "no accountability for funds raised", poor teacher quality in 3rd grade.."no language lab or computer skills taught." A major withdrawal of students mid-term due to teaching staff". I sincerely regret the damage this school has done to my child's education and future."

    "The proof is in the pudding! St. Therese is a solid, good school! We have been a part of this community for many years. Our children no longer attend ,they have both since graduated and are now in high school/ college. As parents whom has made the decision to pay for school, we feel we made the right choice for our children . We have read both positive and negative comments about our surrounding schools as well. They too complain about this teacher, that principal, this math program on and on! Let's stand back for a minute and really look at how many children that have attended St. Therese have gone on to great high schools and then on to great colleges. Let's not take that away from the school and staff. St. Therese is obviously doing something right! From reading some of the negative comments in regards to the school I can't help but notice that they sound a little personal. Can the school / academics/ athletics improve? Sure! There's always room for improvement."
