I had three sons go through St. Thomas School from pre-k through fifth grade. St. Thomas was and still is the perfect environment for kids!! Great teachers (two were nominated for the Teacher of the Year award in Houston - The Crystal Awards), great atmosphere.. the kids were allowed to go out to recess twice a day!! They need to run and play in addition to learning! All three of my boys were accepted to the CCISD WAVE magnet program coming out of St. Thomas. Can't say enough good things about it!!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers are veterans and several have been teaching for more than ten years...some even longer. They LOVE the kids and it shows!


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

My son would run wild at his daycare, but his Pk-3 teacher at St. Thomas has him happily participating in all activities.

My 3 year old son participates in their great new after school classes. The regular Pk-3 teacher leads his class and he just loves her! They read stories about traveling around the world, do an art project, cook, and do many other activities. Every morning when we get ready to go, he asks to go to "church!"

This is our 4th year at St Thomas. The cirriculum and teaching are great, and the focus on academics is strong. Beyond that, there is a strong sense of community and focus on compassion and respect for others. It is a safe place for each individual student to reach his or her full potential and be the person they are meant to be. Each individual child is appreciated and celebrated for who they are and the strengths they have. They are encouraged to develop those strengths to not only succeed individually, but to make a positive impact on their community.

This school loves to tuck most things under the rug. They like to tell parents what they want to hear, but not the truth. We had a horrible experience there last school year. They have gone from 85 students 2 years ago down to 58. They have no business being open. The education that you would pay for there is not what your going to get. Save your money.

My child has been attending St. Thomas for the past 5 years. It is a wonderful school with a great sense of family and community. The teachers are caring and committed to helping the children grow spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually. The school has recently added Singapore math and coupled with the excellent reading and writing curriculum, I feel my son is getting a stellar education. I only wish it went into middle school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Teachers seem to have no experience or even proper training/certification, and private schools in Texas are not required to provide either in their teachers.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
The school has no antibullying policy. No coherent policy to speak of. You have the right to pay tuition on time, and that is all.



- a
The school has no coherent curriculum and provides babysitting services only. Their older grades are housed in a small shack in the back of the main building. Very much like a one-room schoolhouse. All the teachers who were their for years are gone, new teachers come and go every year. Don't make a mistake and waste even a single year at this school.
