    "My husband and I have four children at STA (Kdg/2nd/5th&7th) and so far, we love the school. We have been here for about 9 years now and we love the curriculum, field trips,sports/activities for the kids and the high school placement. So far, grads of STA, are attending; Lincoln Park, Whitney Young, Payton, Brooks, Lake Forrest Academy, Loyola Academy, Muchin, Jones, Mt. Carmel, Mother McCauley, St. Ignatius and De La Salle. I really love that the kids at STA are disciplined well and are good kids, no bullying. Small class sizes, science lab, recess,teachers are great,before/after care, strong parental involvement & strong catholic values are taught! STA may be on the expensive side but it is well worth the money. When we started looking for schools, we looked at; Ancona in Hyde Park & Daystar in the South Loop but both were extremely higher & didn't offer as much as STA offered. STA offers an superior education for less. We look foward to having all four of our kids graduate from this school, go on to a catholic high school & excelling in college...all will be contributed to the excellent education & character education they've received at STA!"

    "My granddaughter came St. Thomas last year for the 7th grade. Up until that point she struggled with math. She has made significant progress over the last and now has the confidence that she can perform. In fact she has identified math as one of her favorite subjects.m"

    "My two children attend STA and I've been involved with the school for 4 years. Today, I can't say enough great things about this school and the evolution it's been on. I think my children's teachers are wonderful, caring, knowledgable, and tough! The Principle Ms. Schidt is a literal God-send: She has transformed the school and brought so much new life to it. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. I really enjoy the other parents I know and more and more parents seem to get involved each year. If you're looking for great faith-based education for your children, I would recommend this school. The older reviews simply do not reflect the state of the school today."

    "I am a parent with three children at St.Thomas the Apostle. This school has changed for the best in the last year and a half. I can not say enough wonder things about the current leadership that supports the staff as well as the parents. All the kids love and respect her. The changes came from the inside and we can see it through out the building. A wonderful school and I would advise anyone looking for a close family, faithbased school to give St. Thomas a try."

    "I am a student a st.thomas and i have been there since second grade. I watched teachers and principals come and go, i also seen the schools good and bad side.We are very nice and welcoming, but you dont get what you need for the money.Send your child/children to a better place where your money is worth it. I am now an eighter grade who has gotten many awards and chances to do things. Come to this school for pre-k -5th.... not 6th - 8th. Trust me dont mess yourself up!!!!!"
