STEPS has been a terrific and enriching environment for our children. There is a strong sense of community that we did not feel at other schools.

Love this school! Our family is so happy at St. Thomas - we are so blessed to be a part of this wonderful and loving community. At St. Thomas there is a unique emphasis on developing the whole child - excellent academics, dance/music/theater including the most impressive productions, as well as faith/values.
