St. Thomas More Preparatory 5

After each day the students are given a study time to finish their homework. Being studious is not an option, there is an environment of learning that pushes the students to excel. The staff is friendly, the students are also friendly and for a small school it is making big strides with SAT average scores 300 points above the highest public schools. Not a cheap school, but if you factor college costs and the scholarship opportunities, It is a bargain.

Cheston Boyd who took the time to let me know that the graduates at this school on average score 300 points higher on their SAT's than the highest rated public school and that many of their graduates get scholarships to Ivy league colleges. Also he helped me make the decision to encourage my niece to attend, she had a choice between this and Polytech and chose this and was glad. Thank you Cheston! You're tops!

This school has great potential and could be rated a great school. However, with recent administration and staff changes I fear parents confidence is shaken. Academically it's a strong school especially the Math Dept. but could use a stronger Science Dept. Socially it's wonderful with practically zero bullying and students seem to really support one another. My hope is that the leadership will take great care in planning the next few years to ensure that this good school will become a great one.

Our three kids went to STMA and all excelled academically and in extracurricular activities. I'd recommend it to any parent wanting to give their child a better education. The teachers there have been nothing short of exceptional and attentive. Year after year, the kids get accepted at top-notch colleges and military academies. With the recent changing of the school principal, I see even better things in the STMA future.

My three children all excelled there and I don't recall them being overburdened with homework. The school continually ranks high academically and students go to college and service academies highly qualified.

The school allows students to spread their wings so to speak. The size allows (and encourages) students to partake in a wide variety of activities. A high percentage go on to college and service academies.

The school has a code of conduct and students are expected to adhere to those principles. Character is always emphasized!

STMA is a small but diverse school and the teachers have varied backgrounds. It bases it teachings on Catholic and Christian principles.
