I am so impressed with the care, concern, emotional growth, and support this school offers my son. My 3 year old LOVES this school and only wish that they opened their doors for elementary again! Couldn't speak higher of the staff!

St. Thomas Lutheran is providing our son with not only the skills he needs to succeed in kindergarten next year but a nurturing environment in which he can grow as an individual. His teacher has 30+ years experience as an educator and a genuine love for our children and what she does. She and the program director have gone above and beyond with our son and some issues he has had adjusting to going to school for the first time and with some medical issues that have arisen. We are always "in the loop" with what our son is learning via the Weekly Classroom Newsletter and emails home when warranted. In return whenever I have a question, my emails are always returned in a timely manner. Our experience thus far has been beyond anything I could have imagined, our son is not only learning and succeeding but he is being cared for by a staff who truly treat their students as if they were their own. St. Thomas Lutheran is truly one big family.

Being a teacher myself, I think I am a pretty good judge of good, quality educational programs. Well St. Thomas has surpassed all of my expectations! My daughter loves to go to school, has made tremendous progress in her math, English language, and science skills, and I am actually learning things from her! She is in the all-day 4-year-old preschool room, and she is already doing simple addition problems and sounding out simple words. The curriculum is rigorous and spans all the academic skills, social emotional learning, gross/fine motor skills, AND gives a thorough religious education. I can't tell you how proud I was when my daughter came home quoting bible versus and telling me she would never die because she believed in God and Jesus! As if this wasn't enough, the staff there is always so caring, generous and supportive! My daughter's teacher makes herself available through email, notes, and even when I am picking her up from aftercare at 5PM! In addition, they provide great opportunities for families to get involved, such as Family Fun nights, Friendship lunches, Grandparents Day, etc. I just really can't say enough good things about St. Thomas!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about St. Thomas! I had one daughter attend the kindergarten wrap program last year and she had a great experience and was very well prepared for first grade because if the extra half day she had at St. Thomas. This year I have a child in the all day 4 year old program and she is really enjoying her first experience with school. She loves going everyday and is learning so much. The staff there is fabulous and I feel they do a great job communicating through notes, newsletters, and emails. Whenever I send an email to my daughters's teacher she always respond back in a timely manner. She is great with the students and really meets their individual needs. St. Thomas is a great school with a loving and caring staff!

No communication with teachers. No one returns notes or emails. The only time they contact parents is for promotions and money. So sad. So disappointed.

St. Thomas is a great school! Both of my daughters went there for the all day Kindergarten and they were way ahead of their peers when they went to the first grade in the public school. The teachers and staff are very caring. I wish they still went up to 8th grade. I would recommend this school to any parent.

My daughter is finishing up Kdg. It was the BEST experience I could have ever hoped for. She is an early 5, and is excelling in reading, math, social skills. You will not find a more caring, spiritual and educational experience for your dollar. The teachers are amazing and totally dedicated to the children. I highly recommend this school and hope they consider expanding the grades past Kdg in the coming years, we would come back!

I can't begin to say enough about the quality Christain education that St. Thomas Lutheran School has to offer. The teachers are excellent, the class size is small, and the St. Thomas school community is warm and inviting. My children are excelling beyond my expectations. I searched a long time for a school, but when I went to visit St. Thomas I knew it was the right choice for my children. Make it a point to check this school out. Once you get there, you'll see exactly what I'm talking about.

At St. Thomas you will experience a true feel of Christian love and family. Class sizes are small, ther is a great curriculum and a wonderful list of extra curricular activities. All the students and teachers interact so well together. It is such a wonderful thing to know all the students and staff and faculty and for them to know you. It truly is a wonderful gift from God to be a part of St.Thomas. My children love it there. Come and see Rocky Rivers best kept secret for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Unbelievable learning environment! We live in the City of Cleveland and looked for nearby private school to send our child. St. Thomas has small classes, a wonderful curriculum, a loving staff and our child is so excited to go to school every day! I love that she is learning about Jesus too! She is thriving!I would recommend this school to anyone! It's a real gem!
