St. Thomas More Elementary School

  • 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.
