Mission

St. Thomas the Apostle School is an elementary school community of many faiths, cultures, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds committed to educational excellence in the Roman Catholic tradition.  We recognize parents and guardians as the primary educators of their children.  With this in mind, we offer them the opportunity to participate in various aspects of school life.  Together we encourage personal responsibility and respect for others as we guide children to become independent members of a global society.                 

As a school committed to the development of the whole child, we are dedicated to helping children realize their fullest potential as independent learners and critical thinkers.  Each grade level has age-appropriate, traditional and innovative programs that incorporate a variety of talents and abilities while fostering spiritual and moral growth.

The philosophy guiding St. Thomas the Apostle School is "come, discover the difference." This "difference" is encompassed in our attention to and care for the whole child, our commitment to education in the Roman Catholic tradition, and our encouragement and celebration of the unique talents and interests of each individual.

Our educational program is dedicated to the development of the whole child. It recognizes the academic, social/emotional, physical and spiritual needs of our students and actively addresses all aspects of our students' development. While our school is a community of many faiths, St. Thomas the Apostle School is committed to educating children in the Roman Catholic tradition. The gospel values of our Lord, Jesus Christ, are at the root of all we do.

We are a diverse school community; our students come from many faiths, socio-economic levels, and cultures. We believe this diversity is a strength - and we celebrate it actively. We encourage each student to discover their unique talents and gifts and to use them in service to the community.

Recognizing that parents are the primary educators of their children, we invite parents and students to be a part of our school community. Our families are encouraged to share their cultural heritage and traditions with the student community and to "make a difference" at the school, through service hours and other volunteer activities.
