St Thomas Aquinas High School Ratings & Reviews

Great private high school for Catholics families.

I graduated St Thomas Aquinas in 2009 and was absolutely unprepared for college. Echoing another reviewer, I received an A on all of my papers I wrote in the library during lunch. I very rarely even took a backpack home. When I attended a somewhat prestigious university outside of the Midwest, I was immediately flagged by my freshman professors as needing remedial help given the lack of preparation I received at STA. Inflating grades and allowing "high achieving" students to waive final exams is doing students no favors. I was entirely in equipped for rigorous exams or fair grading in college.

Saint Thomas Aquinas high school recently posted the highest ACT composite scores since we began keeping records of them in the 90s. Once again the Saint Thomas Aquinas curricula and the programs to address academic need have proven to be effective. Saint Thomas Aquinas compares favorably to every metro school.

Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park won National Blue Ribbon School School designation from the US Department of Education for academic excellence. We have won the Kansas Governors Achievement award for academic excellence in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Our state and national standardized test scores are consistently above those of the great area schools against which we compete for students. Our students regularly win presidential recognition for their service to the community. Our annual canned food drive collects literally tons of food for local Catholic Charities. This year our annual "Wigs Out" event had 146 girls from the community cut their hair and donate it to organizations that make wigs for cancer victims, in addition to raising thousands of dollars for cancer charities. We have several students who have committed to religious lives, including ordained priests, religious sisters, and young men in the seminary. Our Key Club service organization won recognition as the best Key Club in Kansas. STA also excels in athletics, having won more than 75 state titles in 25 years, but that only speaks to the quality of teamwork and community fostered here.

I graduated from Saint Thomas Aquinas two years ago and I can't begin to explain my incredible experience at the school. The academic, faith and family-based atmosphere truly affected my growth as a student and as person. I was academically challenged in all of my courses, and many of them were honors and AP courses. The teachers were extremely well educated and knew the most effective way to teach the curriculum. Whenever I faced a struggle in my courses the teachers were always more than willing to help me until I understood the concept clearly. They made sure I was academically prepared for college, and as a sophomore in college I can honestly say I was extremely prepared for my courses, more so than most of my peers from other high schools. The community also provides support through extra curricular activities, community service, and opportunities to explore and express our faith. I had an absolutely incredible experience there and I would encourage any student looking into a Catholic education to attend my alma mater, Saint Thomas Aquinas. -Katie Lind
