At St Thomas More Elementary School, we believe that the role of education is to develop the total human person spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically and creatively.
This development can be fostered if each child is provided with scholastic and creative opportunities designed for his/her individual needs and talents.
Each child must be encouraged to think freely and reason independently, to achieve self-discipline, and to accept responsibility for his/her own learning insofar as he/she is able.
Our school is responding to the multicultural educational needs of all its students.
