St. Thomas is a great academic school. It has become quite ambitious in expanding its campus at the lower and upper campus. The art program is truly fantastic, probably the best in Dallas for grades 1-8. It really helps sell the school making a beautiful impression. Deeper down, though, the school's ambition and it needs for money though, takes away from the Christian feel of the school in promoting core values and community unity. The school raises on average about $500,000 or more each year. The parents who bring this money at auction rule the roost from their disrespect to staff and other parents. You can expect those at the very top of the school and its church leadership to ignore and delay issues to the favor of those who contribute or facilitate big money coming in.
