I attended St. Thomas when I was a kid and had an unbelievable experience. Now that my kids are of age, we have chosen St. Thomas for their elementary education. It is a great place to be!

We have had a fantastic experience since starting this year. My son has more one on one attention than he got at his previous public school. The administration and the teachers have been wonderful communicating with us. The schoolwork was a challenge coming from public school but he has adjusted and is fitting in very well and his knowledge is expanding. I originally moved him to St. Thomas due to the precautions the administration was taking with COVID and I couldn`t be happier with our entire experience.

After a year and a half of attending, we are very satisfied with the education St. Thomas is providing our son. He started the Pre-K3 program in the fall of 2017 and continues to thrive.The curriculum is broad and we are amazed with his progress academically and socially. The outdoor play area is huge and more like a park than just a playground. There are lots of trees, play equipment and space for him to run.The school`s new director that started this year is enthusiastic and implementing science-based education program changes. The teachers are loving with a good mix of tenured and new, not to mention low student to teacher ratios. The school has an inclusive community that encourages and welcomes parent involvement. We highly recommend St. Thomas to other parents looking for high quality and comprehensive preschool/elementary education.

Warm environment that supports both families and the students. Social skills are developed in addition to education. A broad curriculum to help students explore new ideas and interests. Schedule flexibility before and after school to help with working parents. Solid staff in all grades with leadership from Pastor Mike and Head of School Colin.

We have had a wonderful experience at St. Thomas. The school does a great job providing curriculum in an effective and creative way along with nurturing your kids in a family like environment. Some things that sets St. Thomas apart from other private schools is daily Spanish and chapel along with an amazing playground. The school has an at home feel where your kids are surrounded by faculty and staff that care and take responsibility of every students learning and wellbeing. The students are also very close and form friendships across grade levels.

My two children attend this school and we couldn't be happier. Rigorous academics in a loving and supportive environment, and a great community of families. Stable administration and faculty - It's just a great place. The tuition is very reasonable for what you get in return, and worth every sacrifice. I know that there is financial aid available to those who are able to get into the school, but cannot afford the tuition. I cannot say enough good about this school.

My three grandchildren have attended and one is currently attending St. Thomas. My daughter and son-in-law are sold on this school! We help with the tuition costs since they have three children to support; however, the tuition is very affordable for a top tier Episcopal School. I attended attended an Episcopal School as well as my children did while living on the East Coast. St. Thomas is by far the best investment a parent or grandparent can make toward preparing children for success in life. Most of the teachers at St. Thomas have been there for at least 10 years. The staff is highly qualified and the new Head of School, Jackie Kemper, is a warm, intelligent, and visionary school leader. Parents are actively involved in the school and encouraged by the school staff to be involved. The academic program is solid and my grandchildren enjoy afternoon Fun Factory and various other after school clubs offered through the school. I can't imagine my grandkids attending another school. St. Thomas is home to them, and they are in excellent hands!
