I adore this school. All teachers are very caring and understanding. Mrs. Gigante the principal consistently goes above and beyond for her students. You'd be hard pressed to find a school as welcoming as this one! My only wish is that they would offer a regular lunch program in the future.
This school is a gem amongst the Diocese of RVC schools. Always a forerunner in technology, we offer our students Spanish beginning in grade 3 as well as global learning initiatives that teach our children about the world at large from preschool through grade 8. With 5 children here now and a parent here since 2006, 10 years of solid educational experiences! Check us out today!
This school is a caring school! A school who's main goal is to teach, empower and encourage our children. The teachers I have encountered LIKE to teach. There are video conferencing and guest speakers. I find the teachers all very nice and caring. It's not just a job. They are aware of the times and know the expenses everyone is up against and for that. There is no regular Lunch at the school only special days as the parents are the volunteers, there is no mandatory fund raising and additional expenses. The school has a Parents Club who volunteer to have several Fund raising events to help pay for extra expenses not factored into the tuition. All in all, this is a good school with a Principal and teachers who care and love their students, who keep up with the latest and teach, teach, teach! You SHOULD send your child here. You would not regret it.
As a current eighth-grader at St. Thomas, I've spent more than ten years of my life being enrolled there, and I do not regret it. Although in past years several teachers have come and gone, the middle school teachers have all been here for a fair amount of time, and I love them all. The sixth, seventh, and eighth grades are a growing time for students, with video-conferences, out-of-state trips, and exercises teaching you about yourself and others. I've made amazing friends here, and you won't regret sending your child here.
St.thomas is a great school, but teachers are always in and out of the school. The teachers are kind. There are very little extracurrcular activities. Our school is in a safe communitty, and the parents always help when the schoolis in need.
I'm a working parent and therefore am not able to be as involved in my Children's school activities as I'd liked to be. Nevertheless the impression I receive of St. Thomas Apostle School is one of action, action, action. My children are always involved in some activity that fosters research, artistic representation and enlightenment: all the while having fun! Great Teachers = Great School = Great kids.
