The small class size gives each student at least 2 to 3 times the one-on-one attention found in most public schools. Not only are the academic advantages obvious, but the confidence and leadership qualities that are achieved, partly from the kind and loving atmosphere, but also from little things. For example, like having to speak in front of people at a very young age. My son grew up without the usual fear of public speaking. He just now graduated from large university with distinction , after giving the commencement speech for his graduating class and is now going on to graduate school. I believe his early formation is the foundation of his success. He learned at young age how to stay focused on what's important and how to believe in himself.In conclusion, I strongly recommend St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School to anyone looking to provide the very best for their child not only in academics but the inner values that form the character that leads to a life of success.
