    I absolutely LOVED going to school at STS. I have wonderful memories of the teachers and I am astonished to see bad reviews of this school. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Don't send your kids here. The teachers aren't good for the middle school. The elementary is fine but once you hit middle school your in for a battle with your child. The teachers don't teach well and every day my child comes home miserable. Its not the homework load he says it the teachers.DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE!

    This school has met or exceeded all fo our expectations. Our first child graduated in 2005 and has gone on to do very well in high School. Our second child will graduate in 2006 and will join our son in high school. Both children are very well rounded and have been exposed to a wide varieties of activities while at St. Thomas. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
