Middle School

FACTS

St. Theresa School has integrated the use of Google Chromebooks into the classroom. This enhances teaching and increase student engagement by bringing the power of the web to the classroom.

Welcome to Middle School!

 

Our Middle School Program (Grades 6, 7 and 8), recognizes and encourages the rapid and extensive changes in all areas of an adolescent’s development (physical, intellectual, psychological, social and moral) through a diversity of curricular and extracurricular programs. We understand that successful schooling at this level is largely dependent on sensitivity and responsiveness, and we shape our educational programs around this idea.
