School Reviews

5  
My two children attended STA from 2010 to 2016 and we believed that it was a terrific school in so many ways. It has a wonderful family atmosphere, there are after-school clubs for all tastes, and in contrast to some other parents, we found the theology dept to be the best teaching dept in the school. They raised the intellectual bar extremely high and fostered a vibrant faith in action. If there was one downside, it was not that good on discipline. If a student was a top athlete, they could do whatever they pleased and they wouldn't be dealt with.
