I graduated from STA in 1995, and I am now 30 years old. Sr. Marie Rose and Ms. Kaufman still ask about when they run into my mother. They still care. In 1995, 18 students graduated. We had Such fond memories from that time that we chose to organize an "Elementary School Class Reunion" in 2011.
... Read more 15 of us attended, with one person traveling from Florida to attend the get-together. I think that says a lot about the environment of this school. My classmates and I have grown up to lead successful lives. A couple of us attended prestigious universities (NYU comes to mind), a number of us have attained our dream jobs (one classmate is now a Chiropractor), and a few of us have begun growing our families. To this day, most of us still keep in touch. I'm at the stage where my fiance and I are discussing children and where we'd like to send them to school. St. Thomas keeps coming up as a strong contender. I might be biased, but I think STA is a great place to get your start in life. Read less

I attended St. Thomas Aquinas back when it only went to the fifth grade. Back then it was like a big family, where all the teachers truly cared about you and your future. My first year there I was struggling after transitioning from public school. My teacher picked me up from home and tutored me over

Now my son is attending kindergarten there and he absolutely loves it. If you're looking for small class sizes, challenging curriculum, and teachers who will remember your child for decades to come, then St. Thomas Aquinas is the place you want to be. Read less

A great school with a wonderful family environment and small class sizes. My child has done wonderful. Having other children who are much older, I have had experiences with many other schools. There has been no other school that comes close to the education, the environment and the values taught here.

St Thomas Aquinas is a wonderful school for all children. Our daughter completed pre-k this past school year. We are completely amazed at her progress with her reading and level of concentration. We have also enjoyed the events for the children and family. I believe any parent considering this school

STA is more than JUST a school, it is a family. Calls from teachers and staff are always welcomed and not dreaded. The higher classes are mingled in with the younger classes until they are familiarized with the school and the everyday routine. There are smaller classes and each child gets one on one

Sister Marie Rose has worked hard at completing a secure and competent staff. I would recommend this school to anyone in the surrounding area or even further away. Tuition is reasonable, and know that your hard earned money will be well spent on your child's education. Again, STA is a wonderful enviornment, family oriented, and much more than the 5 stars I have given. Read less

STA is a wonderful school. The principal, teachers, staff, Father Sean and volunteers are what make our kids the people they will grow up to be. I do feel though that discipline is taken a little lightly here, butthen again, we as parents are not disciplining our children at home. I have seen the way
... Read more some children act at school and the way the act out of school. They are two totally different children. Right and wrong begins at home and is just defined at school. The community is great, the families are great. I would like to see more fundraisers such as dinners, maybe a shrimp feast or crab feast, a luau or even just a carnival day for the kids. Also, I honestly do believe that you need more sports and extra-curricular activities. Maybe a softball team, cheerleading, baseball, some clubs such as math and science. Overall... I would recommend this school to everyone I know! Keep up the good work STA! Read less

STA is like an old-fashioned, small-town school, with all the great things that suggests and a few of the draw-backs, as well. The teachers, librarian, principal, and staff are wonderful. The students feel secure and loved as they progress through clear lessons to gain a good foundation in the basics.
... Read more Kids who do well with structure and thrive with a daily routine (and I think most young kids do) will be happy here, although some modern parents may have to get used to it! After the early years, some kids may be ready for more challenges. These are harder to come by because the school is so small and has fairly limited resources. In the end, I decided my kids gained so much from feeling secure and successful that I was willing to do without fancier facilities in middle school. My son loves to go to school--that says it all!

Now even though i only attended two years they welcomed me as their own and took me in as family. That's what i love most the

I've been gone two years and i still can't get enough so i come back and visit. Thanks to St. Thomas i've found who i am and now i know MYSELF. Now don't get me wrong i've always did but i would've called it a identity diffused which is never good! I can go on and on but i'm going to end by saying thank you STA for EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!

St Thomas Aquinas School combines academic rigor with the love of our Lord, Christ Jesus. The staff nurtures my child's mind (academics), body (sports) and his soul (religion). What a profound mission!
