This is a good place for any student, of any background, that is serious about learning and behaving in a manner conducive to learning.

Amount of homework: Just right

All students have homework just about every day. The school has a computer program that allows parents to monitor homework assignments.

Honors and advanced classes are offered and there are plenty of challenges, not the kind that come from dodging a bully on the playground, but the kind that comes from learning.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

Respect for others fosters respect for self, and STM emphasizes both. Students are taught to respect themselves.

The school teaches values (which are so lacking in society) in addition to core curriculum. This prepares the student for more than standardized testing.

Great school and great staff. Teachers are dedicated, making themselves available during off-peak hours; and they respond quickly to emails.

St. Thomas More is a wonderful school with a dedicated, caring staff. As an educator, I am impressed by the academics as well as the atmosphere.

Our experience at this school has been awful. Some of the teachers and principal are unprofessional and play favorites. If you do not fit within their mold, they treat your child like a second class citizen. The postings before do not seem to accurately depict what children and parents really feel. You are wasting your money and your child will grow up with low self esteem when they get through with them, if you send them to this school. You are better off investing in a house in Munster and sending them to a Munster public school. Teachers here are not held accountable and need to understand that they have a job because of the hard-earned money that parents pay. Private schools like this wouldn't be in business without us, so they need to shape up and start treating their customers (parents and kids) with respect, and show the Christian love they profess to have. Our child doesn't want be Catholic anymore because our child has been bullied so bad by the teachers.

I love St. Thomas More. I actually transferred from another private school, and I could not be more happy. The teachers are great. The priest is involved and the children adore him. My son and daughter are being pushed academically. Web could not be more happy.

Do not listen to the naysayers on this site, this is a wonderful school. They do not tolerate many of the conduct issues which seem to abound in public schools. All of the students are properly dressed, speak respectfully, and are expected to be there to learn. Parents are expected to be involved, there is a lot of homework and grading is strict, but all of these are positives and build strong study habits for college and the career market. The teachers are experienced, and the administration involved. If you care about education and morals, send your child to St. Thomas More.
