We believe, through the combined efforts of our faculty, staff, parents, and students that an environment of respect and shared responsibility exists at Mother Teresa Catholic Elementary School.

We believe our students...

  • share the love of God with one another and are called to be disciples of Christ
  • learn and grow in a variety of ways across multiple disciplines
  • treat each other with respect and dignity as they deepen their understanding of Saint Teresa of Calcutta
  • strengthen their Catholic faith through prayer, service to others, and leadership in the school and surrounding communities

We believe our parents...

  • model the Catholic faith for their children
  • take an active role in their child’s education and faith formation by being the primary educators of their children
  • act as an example of Saint Teresa of Calcutta through volunteerism, kindness, and prayer to serve the school community

We believe our faculty and staff...

  • create an academic and faith-filled environment where effective and engaging instruction promotes student growth based on their diverse needs and abilities
  • model the example of Saint Teresa of Calcutta by sharing her love of Jesus
  • develop confident young people rooted in the Catholic faith, who are morally and academically prepared for lifelong learning
