At St. Theresa Catholic School, we do not solely focus on test scores, but rather are interested in the performance of individual children, and helping them succeed to the best of their abilities. In order to make sure every child has a chance of success, children have to learn more than facts and figures or how to do the kinds of problems that will appear on the next standardized test. They need to understand the underlying concepts in science and math. They need to be able to read, write, and discuss the ideas in literature and history texts. They need to be able to think about what they’re studying and how it connects to the things they’ve already learned and the world around them so they are prepared to meet the challenges of both today and tomorrow.
In order to make this possible at St. Theresa Catholic School, we strive to create the right kind of academic environment. It takes individual attention from caring teachers, the involvement of engaged parents, and the example of other motivated students. If you want your child to learn more than the minimum required to score well on a standardized test, consider our approach to learning and find out more about the academic programs we have in place.
