St. Teresa High School Reviews

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.

I loved playing football and baseball at S. Teresa High School. The academics are above average and the graduation rate is near 100%if not 100%. There are some very good teaches that will prepare you very well for college but there are also some that are pretty terrible, however, they don't seem to last long. It is a tight knit community however beware; parents like to get very involved if their children are not succeeding and will complain and try to bully their way into getting what they want. Overall it is a good school that I would send my children to if I had any.
I left my hometown public school for St. Teresa my freshman year. At first it took some getting used to, but as time went on, I do not regret my decision at all. There are so many great aspects about the school, and I wish I would have taken advantage of the many extracurricular activities they have to offer. Fantastic school for sports, clubs, and faith.
