    I'm currently a senior at STA and the past four years have been an amazing experience due to the endless experiences available. There are a multitude of clubs, sports, and other events offered that allow you to branch out of your comfort zone or hone in on your passion. STA is pretty well-known for our outstanding sports teams, but our academics are just as impressive. The courses adequately prepare you for college and the guidance office is very welcoming and always willing to answer any questions you may have. I may be slightly biased, but this is an amazing school to attend during the best four years of life!

    St. Thomas has an overall great feel. Every day you come to school, you are ready for something new and exciting. There is always something going on and there is always some sport or club for everyone. The teachers and curriculum really prepares students well for college and allows them to further develop their skills. I love STA!
    The school offers a well rounded education. The facility are well trained and actively interact with their students. The sports program is excellent, and St Thomas has the best Marching Band in Florida. The facility is is very responsive to the parents, emails are answered on a timely basis. If I have any concerns, they have always been addressed and answered to my satisfaction. The school is well diverse and offers many clubs and extracurricular activities for the students. The Stem program is well regionalized. My kids really enjoy their time at St Thomas.. They offer many AP ands honors courses. They really like the school. I would suggest a better selection of entrees at the school cafeteria.
