    We love this school! My son travels 2 hours a day to go to this school, his choice, and is super happy he is attending St Thomas. The teachers have been out helpful. They love to see the boys succeed. My only complaint would be his sport. Our coach works at another school, and thankfully comes in to coach the boys but it seems that this sport, in particular, is treated like they are not as important as some others. But he still seems to enjoy it.

    I love this school - the teachers, the staff, the administrators, the Basilian Priests and their charism, and the other students - I just can't say enough good things about it! My son has slight learning differences and they help him immensely - I never thought my son would like going to school. Thank God for St. Thomas High School!
    As a parent I couldn't be happier with our St. Thomas experience. Excellent teachers who understand boys and inspire and encourage them to grow into their potential. A great balance of extra-curricular activities allow the students to explore different interests and make friends from all walks of life. A+ to the Basilian Fathers and their mission. Our son came away well prepared for college and was accepted to several schools with scholarship offerings. Go Eagles!
