Principal’s Message 

Santa Teresa Elementary School – Oak Grove School District

Welcome to Santa Teresa Elementary School! Here at ST it is our mission to cultivate socially and academically resilient students that reach their potential daily, and understand that with hard work and unwavering support, they can achieve a future that is beyond what they can imagine today. Our incredible staff is dedicated to ensuring that all of our students have access to educational experiences that promote opportunities to think critically, effectively communicate, display creativity, and successfully collaborate.

Our expectation for everyone on our campus is simple. As Santa Teresa Panthers we are always respectful, always safe, and always responsible. As our students truly understand and apply these life long skills into their daily lives, their ability to handle adversity and make positive choices increases greatly. As a staff, we are committed to modeling a respectful, safe, and responsible environment both in and out of the classroom. We also believe that elementary school should be a fun experience for everyone. Developing a love of school at an early age is a critical component to continued success down the line, and we strive to do just that.

Whether you’re with us for eight weeks or eight years, we sincerely hope you have a wonderful experience at Santa Teresa. If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (408)227-3303 or

Warm Regards,

Mark Lepori
