St. Thomas the Apostle school in Glen Mills, PA provides a first-class education. The children, starting in the 4 year old preschool conduct science experiments and learn Spanish! For grades Kindergarten thru 8th grade, they have a lab-lerner (fully equipped) science laboratory, Honors Math program (5-8), foreign language program, small class-to-teacher ratios, plenty of arts opportunities (chorus, band, art show and talent show), a wonderful community of parent volunteers, smart boards in every classroom (including 'specials' ), dedicated faculty for technology, phys ed, art, and music, and the most caring, excellent teachers (many of whom hold their masters' degrees). They educate in a safe environment where catholic values and traditions are stressed giving children needed discipline. But they also allow for the individual child's needs and embrace the 'whole child'. Three of my children are enrolled in this school and despite the high taxes I pay in the Garnet Valley school district, I would not dream of sending them anywhere else!
