Named after Mother Teresa (1910-1997, canonized St. Teresa of Calcutta) the school opened in August 2001 with 301 students from Kindergarten to Grade 8, with a staff of 20. It was an exciting time for the Silverspring community, which had waited 10 years for the new school. Mother Teresa School celebrates three important ideals exemplified by the life of Mother Teresa: her faith, her service, and her stewardship. Our mission to nurture faith, encourage excellence in learning, and inspire our students to serve, making the world a better place, influences our school community`s daily actions and words. It is our hope that our staff and students exemplify the life of our patron saint while appreciating the gifts of God`s blessing as we achieve to the best of our ability.
