I am so grateful for St.Theresa School. My child has been a student here for 5 years. The quality education offered here is beyond excellent. I've noticed in school competitions, St Theresa has competed with and won, surpassing schools like Ransom and Gulliver. The students at STS learn kindness, responsibility and respect as well as honor, in living a Christ-centered life. The Sisters and teachers are very involved in their students and take the time to know each one's circumstances. I have NOT found any cliques of parents or students, making us feel left out. We are not Latino/Hispanic, therefore were warned against coming here. Instead, we have found a very loving, welcoming and kind environment where the children truly care of each other. I highly recommend STS and can tell you there are enough teachers and aides per grade to take care of each students needs. The principal, Sister Caridad is always there to listen if you need her as are all the teachers, especially the higher grades where students become family to each other. There are "Zero" drugs, alcohol or illegal activities and parents are kept up to date on everything happening with their children. This is the best school for boys AND girls in Miami-Dade county and I'm both grateful and proud to be a STS mom.
