St. T’s is amazing! From the moment my children started at the school it has been a positive experience. We were welcomed into the community like old friends, and the teachers and other kids embraced my children with open arms. Our family developed strong bonds with other families that we know will be life-long friendships. Morning Chapel has become a positive way to start each day, giving us yet another way to connect with the community. The buddy program has also been a wonderful experience for my children, especially my son. His buddy greets him everyday with a smile and has been so helpful in getting him excited about school. The school has become like an extended family. We just love the school!
Every morning the children recite a little poem in Chapel that asks the them to make the world a better place beginning with themselves. Being caring and empathetic is reinforced throughout every aspect of school life. It is part of what I love about the school. I know that when I send my children to school everyday, they are learning to be good people.
As a former student, I can truly attest that this is a school where teacher's let bullies reign, and teacher's thus constantly turn a blind eye. Some of the teachers, past and present, even are bullies themselves. They will publicly berate a child in front of the entire class over a minor indiscretion, such as having black leggings on instead of navy.
This school does not teach appropriate social values, kindness or in any way teach children class.
Moreover, even when the bully and the bullied child must go to the principal's office because the situation is so out of control, the school doesn't even contact the bullied child's parents to let them know of the horrible situation that their child is in.
AVOID THIS SCHOOL AT ALL COSTS.
St. T's is a special place! It's truly a caring community. All the children know each other and the families are diverse, down to earth and friendly. The school has helped my children grow in confidence, creativity (art and music dept is amazing!) and focus on all that they participate in.
