John, Christopher and Alexis played together on the playgrounds of St. Thomas’s and now their children are following in their footsteps. When asked if they always envisioned their children attending St. Thomas’s, they say no. As successful, professional adults with open minds, they explored all options, looking for the best fit for their individual children. John Forrest remarked, “I was quite hesitant to send my children to the same school that I had gone to simply because I did not want them to be limited to the same experiences I had as a child. However, in visiting St. Thomas’s from the perspective of a parent, I was very pleased to see that while the sense of community around the school remained, over the past decade there has been a modernization as it relates to the broad education of young children.” While our alumni all agree that the community, academic rigor, traditions, and values remain a foundation of the school, they have noticed that the changes, particularly in daily schedule structure and curriculum, allow St. Thomas’s to provide an unsurpassed experience and education for young children.
