School Reviews

St. Thomas has a lot of things going for it - a great playground, long recess, small class sizes, extra curricular activities such as art, music, PE, Spanish, and computer. However, it has several down sides as well - poor classroom management, lack of a clear discipline strategy, poor communication with parents, and developmentally inappropriate kinder curriculum. If your child is well-behaved, can sit still for long periods of time, and doesn't mind doing worksheets. I recommend St. Thomas, but if your child is exceptional in any way, I cannot recommend St. Thomas.
