The mission of St. Thomas More School is to provide a comprehensive educational program based on the teachings of Jesus Christ.
We challenge the students to develop academically and spiritually to the best of their ability, while becoming responsible, respectful members of the Church and community.
We believe that the Catholic school is the best environment for quality religious education.
The message we promote at St. Thomas More is:
E xperience ways of learning.
S erve those in need.
P ray and follow Jesus.
E stablish good work habits.
C reate lasting friendships.
T rust in God to become the best you can be.
St. Thomas More School believes in educating the whole child in every aspect of their development.
Spiritually, a respect for God, self, and others is stressed through a study of the Catholic faith and by developing a value system. Prayer and the importance of Jesus in our life are shown through the celebration of student-planned, weekly liturgies and daily prayer in the classroom.
Mentally, students are challenged through classes that prepare students to carry out their roles as workers and citizens in a world increasingly shaped by mathematics, science, and technology.
Culturally, students have opportunities to grow through their social studies classes, Spanish classes, and by attending events at the Weidner Center for Performing Arts. Music classes are an important part of the curriculum for all. Middle school students also have an opportunity to be a part of the school band.
Socially, students are encouraged to create lasting friendships with love and respect for all. An atmosphere of cooperation with others is stressed.
Service to those in need is a priority. Students help out at Paul’s Pantry on a regular basis.
