St. Thomas the Apostle School Reviews

3 reviews
There are truly not enough words to sum up just how elated I am with St. Thomas. STA DELIVERS! My daughter’s happiness at school is reflected in the pride that she takes in her assignments. She’s challenged, but is never discouraged. From the Head of School, to the amazing teachers (Ms. Jordan and Ms. Hendzell to name just two out of many), the Home School Association, the school community, STA families, and everything in between— St. Thomas has exceeded my expectations.

The teachers act with purpose—-they are effective, thorough, credentialed, organized, responsive. They have a keen assessment of my child’s academic progress as well as any areas where she needs assistance.

STA has been a fantastic and positive experience for my family. We have relaxed a bit more, and we continue to feel confident that our daughter is receiving the essential tools that will prepare and line her up for success.

Overall it is a good school. The teachers really prepared me for high school. It was in a nice neighbourhood and the parent are really involved with fundraisers.

When i was going there, some of the teachers would abuse their authority. Sadly some of the nicest teachers are no longer there or teach younger grades.

It has recently had new changes and i think its for the better.
I went to St. Thomas for several years and I absolutely loved it. The teachers made all the difference, and one particular art teacher there, Mrs. Sitbon, was a mentor to me. The administration could get with the times, but otherwise, it's still a fantastic school.
