If you choose this school, you need to be aware that the University of California and California State University systems do not consider this school to be accredited. This means that if you attend this school, you cannot enroll in a public university in California.

Saint Thomas More offers a quality education along with the moral fabric needed in todays society, which is lacking in many of the private schools. The hands on approach and familiarity of each child, regardless of age or grade, is what makes this school work. All children from K-12th grade are given the tools needed to navigate their lives in a positive and accountable way upon graduation. The family involvement on a day to day basis allows these young people to be guided with a strong sense of self esteem, moral backing and confident sense of right and wrong. The education received via the commitment of its' teachers and staff is unique and complete. More over, the children are prepared for the real world, both with their education and religion. This is a secret gem in Silicone Valley. If you want a good kid, look at this school.

The education recieved at St. Thomas More was truly unique. How often is one taught the importance of faith and morals in his life? St Thomas More instills in it's students most significantly this aspect in their approach to learning. Without this, an individual's ability to achieve happiness in this life and union with God in the next is extremely difficult.

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.
