Horrible. Do not send your children here. If your child is not a model student they will do everything possible to break that child down and then throw their hands up in the air. It took me three years to get my kid back to the outgoing fun kid he was before St Thomas. Teachers are horrible and I'm pretty sure his 1st grade teacher was heavily medicated.
STA provides a great Catholic school education. The teachers and staff make learning fun. Not only does it offer great academics but it offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities such as private music lessons, golf lesson, skiing and martial arts just to mention a few. The parents, teachers and staff make it a very welcoming environment for all students and their families.
St. Thomas The Apostle is an excellent place for your child to build her fundamental educational foundation. The teachers are there because they love teaching children. The parental involvement is strong. The principal is a tireless advocate of creating a nurturing environment for learning. Another strength of the school is that the curriculum is enhanced with a strong variety of extra-curricula activities.
St. Thomas the Apostle is a wonderful school. If you are looking for a nurturing, faith-filled environment with a strong academic program, St. Thomas the Apostle School fits the bill. Learning at STA extends far beyond the classroom. There, the students learn to be stewards of the earth, volunteers in their communities, and develop a tremendous sense of character and self-confidence as they move on to middle school. The teachers motivate students to excel to the best of their academic abilities while fostering their spiritual development. The administration listens to concerns and is responsive when and where appropriate. Parents, expect to be very involved in the school community. There are more than enough volunteering opportunities. Although my son no longer attends STA, his time there will always be an integral part of him.
St. Thomas the Apostle School is a welcoming community. The strong academic program is enhanced by the focus on the whole child. Students are taught to be kind, well-mannered, giving members of society . . . the same attributes we stress in our Catholic home!
