The principal is arrogant and talks down to women, he is dismissive of student bullying , but is engrossed in minutiae like policing the color of students' socks. The teachers are impossible to get a hold of and don't return phone calls, and aren't proactive in addressing performance issues by the students, preferring to let parents know there's a problem when their report card shows up.

My children have attended this school for multiple years, and we have finally decided to change schools. The following are several of the main reasons we have decided to leave. 1. The principal does not handle problems very well. 2. The teachers are relatively non-responsive and are unable to meet the educational needs of children that are either below average or above average in any subject. 3. There has been one good teacher at STAA in our four years of experience, and we have worked with eight regular classroom teachers (not counting the specials teachers). 4. Their anti-bullying program is sub-par, and does not deter the bullying issue at the school. 5. Academic program lacks rigor, and below standard school work is acceptable. It is not worth the tuition money spent to attend this school, and we will be spending it at another school next year.

Attended this school for years, then changed to a public school. Kids are behind, even though their grades were excellent at St Thomas. Lots of talk about "high standards" but little proof in test scores, especially in math. No formal science equipment and technological student aides are non existent. Problem w/ cliques amongst children, parents, and admin. Zero tolerance for special needs of ANY kind regardless of severity. Pass on the large tuition bill, it's not worth it.

The school's administration is not very supportive of supporting students who are capable of exceeding academic standards. This school is in need of modern methods to keep the students interested and stimulated. I feel too strongly that the school is satisfied with "okay" students and work. They have absolutely no resources to assist students who are gifted or excel in specific academics. Besides that, the principal is not very good at following up with concerns and many of the teachers are not willing to go out of their way to help students. I came across ONE very good teacher at this school. My child will attend a different school next year.

Academically rich with high standards. Parental involvement worthwhile. Teachers capable and more. Extracurriculars outstanding, especially drama.
