St. Thomas The Apostle
- St. Thomas the Apostle is an elementary school community of many faiths, cultures, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds committed to educational excellence in the Roman Catholic tradition.
- We recognize parents and guardians as the primary educators of their children.
- With this in mind, we offer them the opportunity to participate in various aspects of school life.
- Together, we encourage personal responsibility and respect for others as we guide children to become independent members of a global society.
- As a school committed to the development of the whole child, we are dedicated to helping children realize their fullest potential as independent learners and critical thinkers.
- Each grade level has age-appropriate, traditional and innovative programs that incorporate a variety of talents and abilities while fostering spiritual and moral growth.
