Research deeply and ask a lot of questions before thinking about sending a boy here. The administration is filled with people who don't know education (never studied it, nor have they taught) and who are only interested in hiring teachers who will "tow the party line." The teachers are given no training or professional development and are hired straight out of college and without backgrounds in education. The turnover off faculty and staff is astounding. Don't be fooled by the beautiful singing and the promises of the best high schools, it's not worth it.

For the boy who loves music and has the independent and open nature needed to leave home in third or fourth grade to live in community, St. Thomas provides an excellent education in music and academics

St Thomas Choir School is an excellent school. My son presently attends and just loves it! He is a boarder at the school and my husband and I consider this to be a plus as our son has matured incredibly, bonded and made life-lasting friends and is learning at a top rate school that boasts a high-quality top rank boys' choir. If you want your child to experience the journey of a lifetime than I highly recommend this wonderful establishment!

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 »
