Saint Therese School is a Catholic Elementary School of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, located in suburban Munhall, Pennsylvania.  Our school serves students from Three Year Preschool through 8th grade and has been a ministry of Saint Therese of Lisieux Parish since 1954.  Currently, our school has nearly 300 students in Preschool through 8th grade.  Our highly qualified, experienced faculty hold Pennsylvania Certification and meet all requirements set forth by the Diocese of Pittsburgh. 

Students attend from Saint Therese Parish and the following parishes without a Catholic school: Resurrection, Saint Rita, Christ the Light of the World, Saint Maximilian Kolbe, Holy Angels, and St. Stephen. We welcome students who are not members of a Catholic parish.  Students are primarily residents of Steel Valley, West Mifflin and City of Pittsburgh School Districts.
