Beyond the Basics

Education with STEM  and more


Going beyond the basics of a curriculum, our students' education is enriched with problem-solving activities and hands-on learning they are getting to experience!

We offer enriching in-class and extracurricular activities in
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Fine Art, and QUEST.

STEM  & Project Lead the Way

We are excited to have Project Lead the Way (STEM initiative) in full swing at St. Therese. The students love the new projects, problem-solving activities and hands-on learning they are getting to experience!

FINE ART

 

Fine arts education is embedded at St. Therese through art and music classes as well as extracurricular groups:

 

  • Treble Choir 3rd-8th grade choir

  • The Major Minors 6th-8th grade choir

  • St. Therese Concert Band 5th-8th grade

  • Annual 6th-8th grade middle school musical

 

​The students and art department also produce an annual art show showcasing student work across our entire school.

QUEST

An enrichment program is available for high potential students in grades 3-8 during the school day.  This enrichment program is designed to meet the needs of students who can learn more rapidly and can handle more abstractions, complexity and depth in learning.  These learning opportunities are designed to integrate a variety of subject areas within a real project, product or situation.  Students are given the opportunity to learn and apply a variety of problem-solving strategies in a "student centered environment."

 

Student selection is based on the Renzuli Triad that includes: above average ability (top 10% on achievement tests), motivation and task commitment, and creativity.  Teachers and parent recommendations are considered.  Quest is provided on a private contractual basis.
