STMA is everything we wanted for our daughter, and more. The administration, faculty, and student body continue to amaze us with how well they work as a team to develop each other. There is a strong sense of community among them that is bound together with their focus on solid moral values, classical education, and worship of Jesus Christ. The students and teachers just seem to be all driven to do the right thing, and that is priceless. There is respect, charity, and joy in abundance. Love this school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The school does not have elite admissions standards but its college acceptances are competitive with other prep schools who do have such standards. This is a result of the school's unique curriculum and the effectiveness of the teachers.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The school doesn't grade homework, but students have to read and practice outside of class. They have to work, but they also have time to spend with family and have jobs or volunteer. Students who use their time wisely in school do well and still have plenty of time to be teenagers outside of school.

Develops character: Strongly agree

The guiding rule of the school is charity - love of God and love of neighbor. None of us can be perfect in following this rule but the administration and faculty faithfully adhere to it and this bears fruit in the overall school community.



- a
The community is faithful, joyful and welcoming. You can sense this the moment you walk in the building and are around the students. The faculty are all dedicated to the mission of the school to form young Catholic leaders who are well prepared to enter the larger world. Graduates consistently flourish in colleges whether they are public or private, Catholic or secular

These are excellent teachers. Some are more experienced than others, but that's true anywhere. They are all very caring and smart and some really inspire the kids to be like them. We are very impressed with the subjects the school offers and its college placement program.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
We really like their minimal homework approach, but one of our teens still has maybe too much in Latin that she has to do at home. That said, it's getting better every year.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The school is very firm around honesty and integrity. They expect teens to learn and practice accountability. Doesn't mean all teens (and all their parents) actually tell the truth, but in our experience the leaders and teachers work very hard to build these values.

We have several teens at STMA and we couldn't be more pleased with the school. The academic and social aspects are well balanced. The atmosphere is orderly, happy, and welcoming. The teachers are pretty amazing. My children take one teacher's electives every year they're so good and we hear about all he taught them around the dinner table. Strong teaching inspires children and their parents! Guess that's why STMA has a waiting list every year. Kudos to the school leaders for keeping this school the excellent place it is for the 99% who play by the rules and aim for high goals.

Most anyone in Raleigh knows St. Thomas More has some of the best teachers in the area. They all say they work there from a vocation and it shows. Some of the older teachers would be exceptional anywhere.
