St. Thomas is a great academic school. It has become quite ambitious in expanding its campus at the lower and upper campus. The art program is truly fantastic, probably the best in Dallas for grades 1-8. It really helps sell the school making a beautiful impression. Deeper down, though, the school's ambition and it needs for money though, takes away from the Christian feel of the school in promoting core values and community unity. The school raises on average about $500,000 or more each year. The parents who bring this money at auction rule the roost from their disrespect to staff and other parents. You can expect those at the very top of the school and its church leadership to ignore and delay issues to the favor of those who contribute or facilitate big money coming in.

STA has greatly exceeded my expectations. It is a terrific school. The teachers are so enthusiastic and dedicated. They truly care about every child. My two children both love their teachers and the school. The level of communication is terrific and the administration is highly competent and caring. In addition to strong academics, the school offers great drama, music, art, Spanish, and PE programs. The school community is excellent. The parents are very dedicated and you are made to feel a valued part of the school. We came to STA from a highly rated DISD elementary school and the differences are astounding. I was pretty happy at the public school, but just had no idea how much better the learning and social environment could be until we came here. My kids, although both straight A students in DISD, were behind when they got to STA. We are playing a little catch up, but that is okay. They are making great improvements and are both very happy in their new school environment.

We have three children at STA and are very satisfied with the academics, the strong sense of community among the families, the parent involvement, and the school's effort to instill good values.

Not only a fine academic institution, but also a warm, friendly place where children learn self-confidence and strength of character. The parents are very involved at the school and support the excellent teachers and staff. Children graduate with both a good education and a stong value system.

It is the best school because of the people who work there. Teachers are high quality and full of love and concern. they always go the extra mile. The family community is very supportive of anyone in the community but also shares their gifts, time and money with those who are less fortunate.

St. Thomas Aquinas is the best elementary school in the state! The community is very involved in the school at every level. It is like sending your child to a small town school in the middle of a big city. I know every parent and child. This is truly a village!
