Since St. Thomas More Parish School began educating students in 1965, the school has been faithful to its mission of providing educational excellence in a Catholic atmosphere. STM offers grades preschool (PreK3 & PreK4) through eighth grade. With annual enrollment averaging 425 for the past 5 years, STM is one of the largest Catholic elementary schools in the Houston area. St. Thomas More was honored in 1994 and 2014 by the U.S. Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. In 2014 only 50 private schools in the nation received this award.
In addition to being cited as a National Exemplary School, the continuing commitment of the school community (administration, faculty, staff, and parents) to academics makes STM one of the most sought after schools in the area. As in previous years, over 80% of the students enrolled in kindergarten are expected to graduate from the school, reflecting the stability of the population.
St. Thomas More Parish School has designed an Art-centered STREAM Program with an integrated, effective curriculum that prepares PreK-8 students for the 21st-century workforce.

St. Thomas More Parish School Reviews
Here is my list of some of the best qualities of STM
*Academics in incorporated at an early age but not in a stressful way
*STEM is a very important part of the curriculum. Robotics classes start in PreK 4
*You can always get in contact with your teachers and they are very communicative throughout the school year
* The class body is diverse much like the city we live in. When looking at schools it was important as parents that the school reflect the world we live in.
The best thing I can say is that not only have we been welcomed with open arms but my LO is learning so much and has made great friends. We plan on keep them at the school through 8th grade.
