The best thing about St. Thomas is the fact that it is a true neighborhood school, and its acceptance of unique kids and diversity. The education is good but not stunning or the absolute best in the city. There is socioeconomic diversity, but the well-to-do families are very down to earth. I wish there were more than 1 classroom per grade but I wouldn't want my child at any other school.
Although no school will be able to please every kid or parents, for that matter, the community of St. Thomas has been wonderful, and the education fantastic. My kids were at another catholic school in their early grades, but there wasn't much direction at the time, so we transferred here. Now one is at the Township HS with High Honors, and the other is about to decide where he will go. The education prepares the kids as good as any other school, but a lot of this has to do with the parental involvement. Also, if you don't want the school or parish to 'hound" you while fundraising, go public, you are already paying for that as well as everyone else.
I am very impressed with the new principal, and I am confident she is going to take St. Thomas from being a great school to an even better one. We have been pleased with the strong and caring teaching staff and the wonderful community there.
After averaging 1 review a year, I find these recent glowing reviews suspicious. We have been very disappointed with the new principal and staff. It has been very chaotic and communication is lacking. The community and families are very welcoming and friendly and the kids are great.
We love it! St. Thomas is a small neighborhood school where everyone knows each other and looks out for each other. It is a place where people of all races, religions, and economic backgrounds are welcome. The school is very strong academically and has an excellent differentiated learning program. We are so happy that we found St. Thomas for our children.
We have been thrilled with St. Thomas. Very positive environment, teaches kids about community and important life skills as well as having a strong curriculum and good teachers.
This is a very welcoming school. There is great communication among parents, teachers and administration. The curriculum is comprehensive and the children learn important life skills.
This school offers a safe and caring environment for learning and growing into young adults who are resourceful, bright, thoughtful and compassionate learners. We couldn't be happier!
The sixth grade teacher is horrible and the school won't do anything about it despite concerns raised by parents. Looking for a different school for our children for the sixth grade.
Academically, St. Thomas Aquinas is one of the best in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. And, the community aspect is great.
One of the best catholic grade schools in Indianapolis. Friendly atmospere, and great opportunities to expand in academics.
Simply one of the worst schools my child ever attended. Classes offered do not cover even the basic necessities for entering high school. Constantly badgered about fund raising regardless of high tuition.
Transferred 2 daughters to this school last year to grades 1 and 5. Very strong academics and sports program.
