St. Thomas is a wonderful school with very dedicated teachers. The students learn and have fun at the same time. I would recommend this school to anyone!

My child attended St. Thomas for two years. I know she has gotten a fantastic education. I was pleasantly surprised to hear her tell her younger brother bible stories she had learned. By the end of kindergarten she was able to tell time, read easy chapter books, count money and do basic math. It was crazy to think my six year old could do those things. Her teachers and the whole staff have been so helpful and really stay consistant on rules. I would recommend St. Thomas Lutheran School to any parent.

This school is horrible!!! My child went there and believe me we are now struggling in the public school system. My child did not receive a good start with their kindergarten program and now my child is suffering!!!! so much for a smaller child should have came out of that school far ahead instead of behind. I would not recommend that school to anyone. thank goodness for the tutoring i have obtained. My child is now at the level that they need to be. Not only did my child suffer but the tuition costs were ridiculous for the education received!! What a joke!!!!

I have a daughter that has attended St. Thomas for a year now and I have been very pleased with the school. For her first time attending school she had a couple issues but the teachers were very patient and very attentive to her needs as they worked well giving reports to my husband and I. I love the Christian atmosphere and learning she receives. There's nothing like hearing your child singing worship songs while she's playing.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
