St. Teresa High School Reviews

I enjoyed going to St. Teresa High School for four years for many reasons. Most importantly, the teachers are very helpful and want their students to succeed. Teachers have been the most important part of St. Teresa because of how much they have helped me get ready for college. Another thing I loved about St. Teresa is the family environment. I believe since we are such a small school, everyone that goes there is like a family member. Students lift each other up every day and teachers are always willing to help. Lastly, I really like Catholic atmosphere of St. Teresa. I look forward to the all school mass we attend every month because it brings me closer to God and makes me realize how lucky I am to be surrounded by everyone at St. Teresa.

Racist, unnecessary strict rules, and do not trust the students. Not really a "good" school, but had a great memory. Parents ruled the school. One of my coaches got fired because of a student's mother's complaint. She wanted her son to have some field time, the coach refused. Every year, the school made students "sell" the school calendar by making them pay for it. $30 x 5. My sister and I had to pay the school $1200 total. Tuition is rediculous, food is terrifyingly expensive. They bought Mcdonalds every monday and sold it to the students for almost triple the price.
The teachers there were really friendly and caring. They were helpful to disabled students like myself, and have great resources to accommodate those with disabilites. The cross country and track and field program is among one of the best in Illinois. My love of running has started develop at this high school. I would like to see more courses being taught in the physical and natural sciences.
