My daughter has attended St. Thomas since PK-3 and is now in 2nd grade and for 5 years we have loved everything about this school. The academics and "specials" (art, music, PE, science, computer lab, library, etc) encourage a love of learning and my 2nd grader comes home telling me things that I don't remember learning until further in my schooling. All of the administrators and school leaders keep up with the latest in education and school safety and security and apply that to their campuses as soon as practicable. The Lower School Principal, Mrs. Roberts, is a gift to elementary education. She strives to create an environment of creative fun (dressing up in carpool line, installing a new playground, being a passionate supporter of the importance of recess) while ensuring that the academics stay top notch. My daughter has learned to be disciplined in her learning and her love of Christ through the amazing teachers.
