St Thomas Aquinas School Ratings & Reviews

January 24, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Both my kids have attended here since 2016. I can only speak to the experiences and education my kids have had so far. So with that said, we have not witnessed or heard anything about the referenced bully in the Aug 2017 review. So cannot confirm or deny. As far as curriculum, it has been quite good so far. Again, can only speak for the grades my kids have attended. The teachers my kids have had are all certified. We have been impressed with their dedication and genuine commitment to helping them achieve their best. I was aware that not everyone was happy with the prior principal (in fact we were dismayed to find out one long time teacher quit because of her, so I get it). There is a new principal this year however. She has been doing a good job and is a very positive influence so far. For us, until we leave Derry, it was the public elementary school my kids would have to attend (a 5 out of 10 on Great Schools; were not impressed at all when we had a tour) or STA. Hands down, STA.

STA has gone downhill in a major way. There are fewer than 150 students left in grades pre-K to 8. Sadly the prior administration ran this school into the ground by hiring terrible teachers (not all are certified, despite the school's commitment to employing certified educators only; beyond that at least 2 more simply don't want to be there and seem to dislike their young students). The curriculum is a mess. There is no continuity from grade to grade and most of the students who transfer elsewhere find themselves far behind, even the "good" students at STA. Bullying is at all schools but at STA it goes virtually unpunished if you have an in with the administration. One of the biggest known bullies in the school has a mother who teaches there. So guess what? He doesn't get in trouble. If your kid is bullied by him, NOTHING happens. There have been numerous families who have pulled their kids out due to this one child but yet nothing happens to him, time and time again. One teacher didn't even bother trying to discipline him. Class sizes are currently around 10 students or so in many grades. The school should have shut its doors last year. Sad, but true - STA is just a tiny little school with abysmal academics.

This school has been through many changes recently. When my children first started here the academics were moderately rigorous but I felt there was room for improvement. Since her arrival, Sr. Lucy has worked to bring advancements not only in the curriculum and updating the technology available to all students but insists on furthering the respect for all human beings through a supportive and caring environment. There is now a very low tolerance for bullying and disrespect of any kind which is a refreshing change from previous years.

My son is in his first year at St.Thomas and what a great experience. It is so nice to see the principal greeting the kids at the door each day by name. My son's teacher has played a huge role in his academic growth and his religious education. The teachers and principal at St. Thomas are truly advocates for our children and their education. I would highly recommend this school to any parent.

Save your money because you will get the same curriculum at any public school today. With in the past two years Saint Thomas has ushered in the federally funded Common Core curriculum. In other words this so called private school and it's children have been sold down the river in exchange for money$$$ Of course the principle and the Manchester Archdiocese flat out deny this claim. Having had a child in the 8th grade I know that a data mining test is only given in schools where Common Core is being enforced. My child's class was subjected to a data mining test. Much to the principles dismay I refused the test...after all the school gets money in return for every child that participates. If you are not familiar with what a data mining test is please research for your self. I also had a child in 4th grade that was subjected to extremely inappropriate material. Asking a 10year old if they've ever had a crush on a teacher and to explain or asking a 10year old what they would do if their child came home in a see through blouse is asinine. And those are exact questions from a work sheet given to my 10year old while at Saint Thomas! Any issue you may have don't bother bringing it to the principles attention. Why bother. Everything you are concerned about will go into her "I'll have to investigate it" file...and never be solved. If I didn't know any better I'd say that certain people have been brought in to bring the school down. And last but certainly not least, going to church and calling yourself Catholic/Christian does not mean you are either. After leaving this school I have had to reteach my children how to use a Bible...because that is not something your kids will learn here. In fact they will learn pretty much nothing about the Gospel. How could they when there are some teachers that are too busy checking their Face Book page during class time. I will say that I am disgusted with myself for giving so much money to a school that prides itself on honesty and integrity but does not even follow its own rules. SAVE YOUR $$$
