St Thomas More Parish School5

Both of my boys have bee involved in sports here and I think that, in addition to the academics, has helped them grow and learn a lot. The teachers and coaches are supportive and I keep in contact with all of them. It's a school that has a lot to offer.
I continue to be impressed by St. Thomas More. The smart boards in the classrooms are very neat and I think it's good that they have a computer in each room too. So the technology is all up to par. The library available to the students is very nice and I just love the displays of art work!! So cute.
My education at St Thomas More Academy provided me not merely with a wealth of crucial knowledge, but also the skills to think deeply and critically about everything I encounter in life and the world. As a student currently pursuing a masters degree and preparing to enter the professional world, I feel exceptionally well-equipped by my experience at STM.
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.
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!
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!
