We moved my daughter from a neighboring preschool to St Thomas for her Pre K 4 year - so happy we did! Her confidence and courage grew in the St Thomas community. We were so impressed that we moved my older son from public school to Grade 2. The teachers make sure they exceed their potential in academics, community and faith.

This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
