School Notes:

It is love that makes St. Thomas School a special place. Love of God, Love of People and a Love of Learning. While carrying the charisma of love, hope and fidelity, our school community strives to continue to emulate and embody the spirit of the founding Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together, teachers, students and parents work as a faith community to touch the hearts and minds of our students by nurturing an atmosphere that will allow them to realize their talents and discover their dreams. Academic excellence has always been a priority at St. Thomas. With a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence award to our name, we have a commitment to this tradition of academic excellence and providing our students with the tools necessary to thrive and compete in secondary school and beyond. Our philosophy’s holistic vision calls us to be a family, with meaningful responsibilities for parents, students and teachers alike. We have an undeniable sense of belonging to something special; we all feel it. It’s neither the money nor the resources, it’s neither the building nor the neighborhood, it’s the love and the people that give St. Thomas its incomparable spirit. If you are interested in joining the St. Thomas family, we invite you to contact our office for more information.
