I went to St. Teresa from Pre-K through 8th grade. I put me ahead when I started at Campbell. The history book they use for the 9th grade, at Glennonville it was used in the 7th and 8th. The teachers really work with you until you understand and know how to do it. I am Catholic but most of my classmates were not. Glennonville just teaches you about the Catholic faith without forcing it on anyone. You go to church 30 mins a week, which isnt too much to ask of anyone. It instills good morals and teaches the students how to be respectful to their teachers. I highly recomend it to anyone!
Morals are not synonymous with religion.
You will learn this when you study Ethics.
It sounds like the reason you do so well there is because you are spoon fed the entire way.
Whatever

Honestly, unless you want your child is a Bader or a Kerperien or a Deken, etc...don't send them there. The people don't like new-comers, and they don't easily accept outsiders. They think they are better than just about everyone. I don't think they treat others right. They think that school is only for that little community and noone else. They are very materialistic people, very judgemental and they look at you like you are an alien if you attend their church or their school. The priest is wonderful, and they have a good church, but you have to be "accepted" by all of the Glennonville people. HA, most people could care less what they think, but that's how they see things.
I was raised in in Glennonville and lived there for 25 years and I am a member of one of the families listed above. I think that you are just jealous because our community and families are very close nit. I know that anyone in that community would bend over backwards to help anyone.

I also attended St. Teresa's from 1st to 8th grade. The education I received at the school was above and beyond what I would have received in a public school at that time. Most students who graduate from Glennonville will be and remain at least in the top 10 of their high school class. Now, a public school is not a bad place to send your children but if you have the opportunity to send your children to a private school, I say go for it. If my husband and I would not live so far away from Glennonville my children would be attending this school.

If you are interested in this school feel free to call and make a visit.

This community is very involved with this school and the parish as a whole. They do tend to have a closed feeling but that is because they are so close to their families and are committed to the wealthfare of their community. I have not seen any snubbing or deliberate actions from anyone. This is no saint hood community and there are some who have let their children run and maybe did not do the best with their children, but that would have happened elsewhere as well. If you are involved with your children they can get the well rounded social and academic skills they need to grow and become successful members of any society.
My parents were raised int he community and moved to the big city. They were able to keep their morals and sense of who they were even after leaving. If I had had the chance to live in this great community and raise my children there I'm sure I would have been as proud of them there and I am now. And it is because of the closed nit family values that is continueing to be instilled on the children of St. Teresa's School and the Glennonville community.

I went to school there for a few years and it was great the classes are small enough where your kids will get the help they need if any and they will not be ignored. They built a new school and it is real pretty and nice. They do have some athletic programs and cheerleading, the food is excellent, the teaching is excellent and they will not shove the catholic religion on your child. The glennonville community is excellent people that will do anything to help someone out in need, especially the baders, weidenbenners, dekens, sieberts, they are all super people. If i lived in campbell that is where my boys would go. There has been some very smart people to come from glennonville, lawyers, accountants, probation officers, engineers, trust me a great place to be

I completely disagree! I also went to St. Teresa's. I graduated from 8th grade there cloase to ten years ago and I have learned many life skills that I wouldn't have learned at some public school. Your child will be in a classroom with somewhere between 5-15 children and the teachers truely care about the growth and advancement of your children. I know many St. Teresa Alumni that have gonna on to be Valedictorian and Salutatorian.
And as for the social interaction, it all depends on how active your child is... my brother, sisters, and myself are all very interactive with other children our age eventhough we came from such a small school. My siblings and I, all played elementary sports at Campbell while attending STS. I have made many friends throughout high school and college, but my closest friends still to this day are the kids I met while at Teresa's. And as for going to church it is in the cirriculum, but I beleive that it is something that shows children of the non-catholic belief that respect and diversity are essintial to a good outlook on life.

I was an '03 graduate from STS and they do have basketball, cheerleading, and I think they still have a girl's scout troop. While I was in grade school there Campbell School was very generous in letting Glennonville students play on their traveling and park league teams such as basketball, cheerleading and volleyball. They also put on a school Christmas play every year and they have many hands on field trips to many cool places.

Well I have studied Ethics and part of Ethics is having the ability to agree to disagree. I dk how well you did in this Ethics class you took, but just for a refresher course, part of philoshophy and Ethics is that you can't prove any belief or way of life, you can only provide evidence... and as for St. Teresa School I say that the number of successful people who came out of this school is evidenece enough!!!!!

bfh Don't know who you are nor do I care. Unless things have changed drastically, St. Teresa is a very good school and has a reputation for graduating educated, responsible and service-minded students. My four children graduated from there and all now have college degrees, which they obtained without help from Mom and Dad.

I never went to STS, but I did graduate high school with a lot of them. They were very well prepared for high school, more so than a lot of those who had been in Campbell JHS. Like any close knit community they are going to be weary of an outsider until they get to know them. Some of the nicest people I've ever met have come out of that school. By the same token, some of the most pomp es people I have met have come out of that school. It's like any other school you have the good and the bad. I feel that the good heavily out weighed the bad though. Also, there were enough activities at Campbell while they were growing up that I knew most of them when they started high school. You kind of get the best of both worlds; you get a great education and meet a lot of people you will one day graduate with.

What you describe is called ethical relativism and there are reasons for and against it. I don't need a refresher course as I received an A in the subject, but thanks for the offer.
There are just as many very good students that come out of public school. You get out of something what you are willing to put into it.
I think the key is that people who are willing to shell out the money for private school obviously hold their children's education in high regard.
I think that parental support and interest in their children's school work is paramount to success.
I would not send my children there because I don't think there is enough diversity. I think that about any religious school, not just St. Teresa. I am not trying to say bad things about the school personally so please don't think that I am.

I understand your opinion... and I respect your choice... Catholic school may not be for everyone... just like some children are not cut out to go to public school.
I also agree that public schools have very smart children, but it is much easier to judge students who come from STS becuase it is a small school, that on the broader perspective are very successful. Now days it seems that public schools get a bad rep for the number of students who drop out, then the number of students who graduate and go to college or get a stable job.

I see your point as well. What works for some may not work for others.
Public school does have its share of problems, many of which you can avoid by sending your children to a private school.
I guess there are pros and cons to both.

Diana Mittelstadt is a great teacher. She really looks out for the best interest of the students. They don't always appreciate that so that is probably why one of them is griping on here. She enforces the dress code and does what Mrs. Kuper tells her to do. She even went and got an additional teaching certificate so she could teach more subjects. She is better qualified than any teacher at St. Teresa. People who are writing crap on here about her - shame on you.
uhm hello!! have you been one of her students??? idts whatever loser i was one! she does what mrs kuper tells her to do?? yeah you must be blind-- mrs.kuper would always get on to her for all kinds of crap mostly becuz she had nuthin else better to do-- & she would get on to us in front of mrs kuper then say im sorry when we got back to the classroom. she told us that we could do whatever we wanted to in the classroom but to follow rules when we seen mrs kuper coming!! she let us get on the computers and let us go on topix and youtube and just about anything!! then mrs kuper found out and told us we couldnt get on it anymore-- so diana let us get on it from her laptop!the only thing she is good at is starting rumors and gossip! she would always come in talkin bout whos skanky and her sisters and her and her husband and everything else. judy and pam had to call and complain to the office numerous times about kenna and morgan not getting enough math homework!1 & when we did no one made good grades becuz she would write one problem on the bored and give us our homework then go sit at her desk and file her nails! wed go ask her how to do it and she would just tell us look in your book! yuh you all think janets so great! well we were all in church one time cuz father glenn was making us serve and her and her husband were over int he corner by the piano and she kept trying to get him to kiss her and he wouldnt do it and she was all like oh come on honey its not like they havent sseen this before!! omg you dont put the moves on your man in church thats so freakin gross!

bfh... I don't know who you are, but you obivously need to grow up!!! Saying crap like that is just plain stupid and immature. What are you fifeteen or sixteen, and you think you know everything about life? And if you are a sever you must be catholic, and I am shamed to hear someone talk so rudely about STS because I'm sure that St. Teresa School helped you in many ways that you are unable to see right now.

About 15 years ago, our state representative Larry Thomason (who sadly has passed away) told me that when St. Teresa's students visited his office in Jefferson City, he found them to be the most informed elementary school students who ever visited him from this area. He said their questions clearly showed their depth of knowledge and their high interest levels.

1st because there are not enough of them anymore and 2nd because the school can receive state and federal funds because it has been approved for them. The school is open to all faiths not just Catholic. The tuition that the families pay help pay for the bills and the Teachers Salaries. There has not been a nun there for a long, long time.

It is a real shame that people use this site to trash other people. Girls, you know I told you to get off this site many times, because it is all gossip. However, if you find it necessary to come on here and make negative comments about me, go ahead. If you are taking time to type stuff about me, then you are leaving someone else alone.

I am really disappointed that you came through our school and didn't learn anything about respect. If I had a problem with you, I would tell you - not the rest of the world. All teachers expect that sometimes the children won't like them - that is part of teaching. I did not last year nor do I now need you as a friend.

I really enjoyed your class, even when you were rude and disrespectful, and I wish nothing but the best for you. Good luck to all of you.
