    "I wouldn't ever send my children here. I was a student here throughout the entirety of my childhood (Pre-school through 8th grade). The staff, and especially the administrative staff, have a strong tendency to degrade students. I can recall as a student being made to think I was some sort of nutcase for unfolding a paperclip. I remember quite vividly Mrs. Abersold telling me I would be responsible if another student took it from me to stab someone. How someone with such disregard for logic and common sense could be given the position of school principal is beyond me."

    "St. Theresa is a great school. My family and some neighbors attended and then went to public high school. Most students coming out of St. T's were one or two grade levels above the average public D15 students in math and life skills. Not sure why teachers who are paid a third of public school teachers can consistently turn out great results, but they do year in and year out. Good people and a great education. Highly recommended."

    "I am a parent of three boys. When the last one graduates, we will have been associated with STS for 19 years. We have seen principals and teachers come and go along with parish leadership. However, one thing remains steadfast -- the nurturing, Christian environment provided by the teachers every day. I am pleased that the kids can learn about God and their faith in a setting that supplements the moral values we are teaching at home. Our kids have received an education equal to or better than any other local public or private school. Our two gradutaes were very well prepared for the challenges of high school, both academically and socially. I was grateful that they were with kids they had known all their life during their junior high years, as these can be tough ones for many kids. I know that enrollment has dropped in the last few years, often due to the financial toll it takes on families. But I believe that St. Theresa is on an upswing -- with strong leadership, outstanding teachers and committed parent involvement. If you are interested in Catholic education, stop by and check out our school. I don't think you will be disappointed...I certainly have not!"

    "My fourth child will be graduating next year from St. Theresa. We have been actively involved with the school for the last 15 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. When we move on, we are truly going to miss the teachers and families that we see so often. I believe that STS has helped to guide my children with discipline and good Christian values. I am certain that a quality education could have been obtained at the public school, but our children have learned more that just reading, writing and math. Being kind to your neighbor and living a truly Christian life is just as important to us as the school work."

    "Our kids have been at St. Theresa School for almost 12 years now and it has been an excellent experience for all of us. Our oldest was very well prepared for the college preparatory high school environment. The teachers have been just great. In addition, the moral values infused in every aspect of the day, the sense of community and the involved parents make St. Theresa School a special place. We were very happy to make this investment in our kids."
