WELCOME!  Thank you for your interest in St. Thomas More School for your child/ren and family.  Our faculty and staff constantly strive to challenge our students and the curriculum is designed to educate and nurture the whole child.  Our program focuses on the Catholic Faith, Language Arts, Science, Math, Social Studies, Fine Arts, and Technology.  Our goal is to respond to individual learning needs and prepare our students to meet the challenges of the 21stCentury and to effectively compete in the job market they will eventually enter.  We hope this is what your family is searching for, and that you will join us in this educational journey.

We would like to suggest the following as the top 5 reasons to choose St. Thomas More School:

  • Catholic Identity:  Our school was founded in 1946 by the Incarnate Word Sisters.  Their legacy of Catholic education continues today.  Although our roots run deep, we welcome students of all faiths.
  • Partnership: We make a concerted effort to connect home and school. Communication between school and parents is a priority.  By working together, we are more successful at helping our students reach their goals.
  • Technology: Technology is embraced and integrated.  Through our 1:1 Chromebook initiative and SMART Panels in all classrooms, technology has become a tool for learning.
  • Discipline:  Clear expectations are outlined in our handbook and rules are enforced.
  • Diversity:  We are a coeducational institution with a diverse student body.  We have different religions, different languages, and different colored skin, but we all are children of God.  In the words of Mother Teresa, "Together, we can do great things!”
