Elementary

St. Theresa Elementary School educates the whole child, focusing not just on academics, but the spiritual, emotional, physical, and social well-being of each student as well. We believe learning is more productive in a safe, caring environment in which each student learns the values of respect, confidence, and friendship in a Christian-centric manner. STS staff works closely with parents as well to ensure across-the-board collaboration and understanding of goals and progress for each and every student throughout the elementary school years and beyond.
