Far above average for this area, and slightly above average for the remainder of the country as private schools go - good for kids who like boundaries and like to learn. So far, most teachers are excellent, yet girls tend to get preferential treatment on behavior issues. Haven for conservative Catholics, so if your views vary a bit, or are based on logic and a growing religion, you'll be seen as an "outsider" but still can get a much better quality education than the area public schools. Most students seem respectful and well-boundaried. Girls tend to get away with tattling, and as always, these small communities tend to have rampant gossip so if you are new to the area or community, walk in with a thick skin. Good education, but very conservative religious views, a bit hypocritical but not beyond the typical conservative religious base. Female Principal is nice, but school is clearly run by male conservtive Catholics with very narrow chauvanistic views. Excellent security - the secretary does it all and takes very good care of your children. Just watch out for the gossip - it can be very unpleasant.

I attended St. Thomas as a child and now my two children attend. I am so happy that my children will be able to receive the same quality care and education that I experienced when I was young. Much has been added to the school since I was there, they now offer an extended day program, pre-k and kindergarten program, and many afterschool clubs including, band, drama, art, Odyssey of the Mind and yearbook.

It offers a wonderful atmosphere for the children to learn. The school uniforms are a plus. Classroom sizes are too large - 26 kids in one class. The school is more geared to an average learning student. If your child requires special ed help, this school probably wouldn't be a good choice for you.

Have had my daughter at Aslan's Pride pre-school, Tri-City Christian Academy, and here. My son attends North Hampton elementary. Compared to Tri-City Christian, St. Thomas has both benefits and drawbacks. I think the Sanford school district in general would benefit by looking into the teaching styles of both Aslan's Pride and North Hampton School (public.)

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
