Awful school ! Rude teachers, staff and student body. The survivors must be some true saints. Horrible, that the parents can not have lunch at least once a week or even a month with the student in middle school or even any grade. Because that is when they have the children eat in silence rather than speak to their friends. And oh my. Their God must be praised FIVE times a day on the floor on their knees! While the teacher sits at his or her desk.
I am so glad to hear that St. Thomas More's principal is retiring. Hopefully the school can run like it should. Also it would be great if the staff would stop candy coating this awful school. Just good until the 4th grade.
There are plenty of activities and sports to chose from for boys and girls which makes me happy that my children can get involved. I like the teachers a lot, too. They are good with the kids and I see they are doing well. I know I made the right decision enrolling them here.
St. Thomas More is a great school with a sense of family and community that runs with abundance. The principal, who is retiring, brought STM's academic and religious aptitude forward. No school is perfect and you can find fault with any or all but STM's top priority is providing excellence in education and producing children who are fully prepared to continue a higher education at a college preparatory high school. I will miss the sense of family and community that STM is all about when my child graduates. Go Tigers!

This year nine students received scholarship from a number of high schools in Houston. That is very impressive. My son will graduate from St. Thomas More in 2015 and hopes to be a recipient of a scholarship next year. Thanks to the faculty and staff for doing a great job!
Texas based on statistics is the worst state for primary education. Indicating that students go to one of the top schools in Houston after leaving St. Thomas More is that person's opinion. I see parents paying an outrageous amount of tuition, and are basically teaching the kids themselves. They accept it under the believe that this is how it is suppose to be because they trust what they are being told due to not knowing any better.
The principal is entirely focused on the students well being. She tries to bring the outside world and academic world together to best teach the students and her vision is very positive.All of the teachers feel this way. If you are looking for a school that has genuine care towards your children and the desire to see them succeed then St. Thomas More is your best choice.
St. Thomas More School is one of the top Catholic elementary schools in Houston. However it is not for everyone. It is for those willing to give up free-time for homework and studying. The school is challenging. My three boys attended STM and went on to some of the top high schools in Houston. My boys learned time manage and organization. They were prepared to handle the transition from Jr. high to high school. Thank you STM!
What I love about St. Thomas More is that the school is very conscious of keeping in touch with parents. They will send notes home with the kids and return your calls. Plus they are very fail with all of the children as far as any discipline goes. They teach good values.
My children like it here, as do I. From a parents perspective, I enjoy that the teachers a very attentive to answering questions and concerns. I send quite a few emails and I always get a clear quick response! Also, I think it's great that they are keeping up with teaching the children about modern technology so that they are proficient by the time they reach middle school.
this is our first year in,and all i can say is WOW...am happy i finally found a school that met all my needs, spiritual, academic plus more
As a parent, I really appreciate St. Thomas More Parish's attentive and caring staff. Whenever I contact them they're always available and understanding of any concerns my son or I have. I am a room parent and can tell firsthand just how much these kids love the family environment St. Thomas More creates.
Some teachers post my daughters grades online which i find really convenient. The music teacher and math teacher do a great job at it. If you are concerned about your child's progress usually it is not a problem to send the teacher an email to ask for help and they are very responsive. I find the school to do a good job at keeping up to date with the latest technologies and educational tools. I especially like how the school academically is pretty rigorous, and you can't beat the location because we only live about 2 miles from the school.
My kids have attended STM since the third grade. I love this school. The teachers are great, the parents are great, and the students really get along. STM is serious about educating kids. I have found that the administrators and teachers work closely with parents to give the kids the very best academic, spiritual, and social experience. The teachers are approachable and always ready to help. If you do your part, and let the school do their part, it will always work out. STM truly prepares the children for life. I will always be a proud STM parent!
The amount of communication between the schools staff and parents is sufficient. The class sizes are small and I feel that the amount of homework given to my child is reasonable. The best part about this Catholic School is the broad range of activities that are provided. From music to sports, even student government, they do a great job at providing a variety for the students here.
I just love the other families here, and that as my children are graduating and moving on and a lot of new families are joining. There is a sense of camaraderie with the families here in the school. They're a great school academically as well. When we first started at the school, they had a 99% rate of their students getting into their first pick for High School.
I find that the level of difficulty and the amount of homework given to my children from St. Thomas More is very reasonable. As for the environment goes it has a very safe feeling to it, and the staff is attentive and makes themselves available when you contact them.
STM is a very good school. I believe it could be even better if the teachers were given more resources and updated materials. The age norm of the teachers is a little old so new teachers with fresh ideas would be an added plus.
The teachers in the pre-school don't teach the students anything. The school is not worth attending. Overpriced babysitting with instructors who dislike children.
