Academics are okay. Most of the teachers care about their students, especially the bio/Chem/anatomy teacher and the psychology/government teacher. A few teachers are astonishingly lacking, such as both of our ELA teachers. Extracurricular activities are good considering the size of the school. Sports aren't great, but anyone can join so there's plenty of opportunity to get involved there. Religion does play a role here, but there are a some non catholic students. Overall a decent college prep school that is safer than the local public schools.
Review St. Thomas More Preparatory School
I really enjoyed going to STMA. The small size of the student body is its trademark as that is what allows for the tight knit community, small class sizes, ability to be a part (and take an active role in) multiple programs and organizations within the school. . But, there in lies its faults. Although the environment is conducive to making you academically prepared for college, students lack in some of the experiences that their peers may have in other schools. Programs are fueled by interest, so as interest falls, sports teams and clubs may be discontinued year to year. Overall, I would definitely choose STMA again because of the education I had and the relationship with my classmates, but I do wish some parts about the school were different.
My first three years were difficult here. If you didn't go to the "sister" middle school, making friends may be difficult. My senior is turning out pretty good with the new administration. Also, I got into my top-choice college a well known school in Boston, which is impressive coming from a small, no-name school in Delaware. Also, the new Dean of Academic Affairs is great!
