My daughter goes to this school and she loves every day of it. The teachers are great and truely caring. I get a call from the nurse even if she bumps her knee. They keep me updated on every aspect of her day. My daughter loves all her classmates. Her teacher even comes to the childrens birthday parties when she's invited! They have a bunch of after school activities as well. She is also in the holiday play. My daughter knows all the teachers in her school because they all get involved. They don't just stick to whichever grade they are assigned. Overall, I love the school and am happy my daughter is going there.
I think the school has helped to develop my children into well rounded individuals. Even though it is a small school they offer them many opportunities to grow, not only academically but also through talent shows, plays after school activities. I think most of the teachers go above and beyond. Keep up the good work!
There is a real bullying problem and the administration does not want to adknowledge it. I would say that if you are considering sending your children to this school think about the BTSD school Mary Divine. Not tuition, and no headachs. I pulled my children from this school becuase of the problems they were having. They are very happy at Mary Divine.
My children have received a wonderful education at STA. Definitely better than the quality of the local public schools. There is a problem with teacher turnover, however, it has not adversely affected either of my children.
The teachers are overworked. Administration cares more about other schools than this one. She does not get involved nor support her faculty in discipline issues. The students run the school. Little if any REAL learning takes place.
Quality of Academics is extremely low! I transfer my children due to the roll over in teachers. I believe a student should grow up in a school with the same teachers watching their progress. Not at St Thomas they are not there long enough for that. Principal is not very involved. Discipline is not a high piority. The pastor is wonderful if only the rest of the teacher/parents and children followed in his footsteps.....
