“"When I transferred my son to St. Thomas School I was as nervous as he was. He had some special needs that, I feared, wouldn’t be met. Part of me thought that he would be missing out on the “fun” part of the public school experience I remembered from my school days. Nothing could be further from the truth! It was easy for him to acclimate himself, make friends and start enjoying school. He made great strides in his schoolwork almost immediately. I discovered that St. Thomas always has fun activities happening both during and after classes. The families of the other children became like an extension of ours due to all the parent involvement there. St. Thomas has a proven record of excellence in preparing its students for further education. The religious cornerstone of the school lights a candle in your child, nurtures its flame and provides fuel to keep it burning all their lives. St. Thomas offers more than a just a great education for your children, it offers an educational experience that far outweighs the cost of attendance."

"We are about to send our third child to St. Thomas and couldn't be happier with the school.  We think of St. Thomas as family where our children have friends in every grade, mostly due to the "Book Buddy" program.  Respect, the importance of education, a strong sense of community, and the presence of God in our lives are all promoted throughout the school and in the classrooms.  The experience and education our children gain, while attending St. Thomas School, will always stay with them."
