    "My previous review has been removed for some reason. Very poor experience with my children here. Bullying and social cliques are the norm here. Academics have gone down tremendously the last several years as the older, more experienced teachers have left and/or inexplicably been fired the day before the school year began in 2013. New practice of hiring St. Thomas parents for office and teacher positions (5 and counting) does not seem to lend itself to bringing in the best talent. I can go on and on, but please look elsewhere!"

    "St. Thomas of Villanova. First, all around 5 star ratings from all but one commentator should raise a red flag. Who are giving these ratings? In the past few years many experienced teachers and a great secretary have retired or been fired without good explanation. What is truly disturbing is that many of these open positions have been filled by mothers of children already attending the school or parishioners with connections! They are clearly not looking for the best candidates. Also, be cautioned that many teachers/administrators are on social media and 'friends' with some of the parents. These friendships extend to non-school social interactions. IMHO, this is unprofessional. Discipline & rewards for students are arbitrary and capricious. Bullying is not dealt with effectively. Parents are required to volunteer for sporting events even if their child is not playing. However, when the volunteer list is finally put out to sign up, some 'in crowd' family names are already entered into preferred time/job slots - before anyone else has gotten a chance to look at it! Several other issues that demonstrate a lack of Christian values. Very sad and disappointing!"

    "St. Thomas has been a great school for my children. We have been there several years now and find it to be a warm and inviting environment. The kids all know one another from preschoolers to 8th graders, by first name. Students are very involved with the parish next door. They do readings at mass on a regular basis. Moral and spiritual development is as important as academics we've noticed. Overall, it's been a very good experience."

    "I love Saint Thomas of Villanova school! They've helped instill such a strong moral guidance for my daughter who has attended the school for 3 years now. I love that every day when I drop my daughter off to school, Mr. LaRoche, the principle, is there helping the kids out of the car. It's such a community school, built around faith and family. I also love how involved the parents are. It's not only built friendships in the classroom, but I've built great friendships with fellow parents. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a school the provides small class sizes, strong Catholic faith, and a great community."

    "St. Thomas of Villanova is a fabulous school. It's a small school, with a large sense of community. All the kids know one another, from K-8, they intertwine the children and build trust amongst them. They learn Christian values and respect, along with top notch educational initiatives. Set on a huge piece of land, not on a busy road, it's a feeling of a safe place for my kids. Parent involvement is high, the school secretary is so great with the kids and parents, it's a pleasure to phone or come in to the school. And, show up anytime, they are welcoming. Friday morning mass is celebrated with the parish and planned by the school children. It is wonderful. The pastor of the church visits the classes regularly and really talks to the kids, at school and at church. It's an amazing school, I am proud to send my kids."
