Points of Pride

While students at St. Thomas the Apostle participate in standardized testing to measure achievement, we believe it is also important to consider other factors when assessing educational success.  Opportunities for experiential learning, parental involvement, a disciplined environment, dedicated teachers who engage in continuing professional development, and shared values throughout the school community all contribute to creating a positive atmosphere for learning.
