History of St. Thomas School




St. Thomas the Apostle is a Catholic elementary school in Old Bridge, New Jersey, and Diocese of Metuchen. Not only do we offer a quality Catholic education for Pre-K to 8th grade, but we align our curriculums with 21st C. Common Core Standards.  We are commited to Educating both Minds AND Hearts.

Our students feel safe and  cared for in our inclusive family atmosphere.  From Pre-K to 3rd grades every classroom boasts both a Teacher and an Instructional Aide.  Having another adult in each classroom adds to the implementation of differentiating instruction.  We are also proud to offer FastForWord, a web-based reading intervention program for students who need additional individualization.

The Block Schedule in our Intermediate grades and Middle School allows indepth learning opportunites with an emphasis on Language Arts and Math.  Additionally, Middle School students belong to a unique multi-grade House Program.  House points are earned through service and competitions that celebrate all intelligences such as athletics, math, music, linguistic, spacial, and art.

Technology is used in every classroom.  In addition to IPads in the younger grades to Kindles in the Middle School, laptops in our Science Lab, and a new Digital Technology Lab, every room is equiped with an Interactive Whiteboard.

Finally, St. Thomas is dedicated to teaching moral discipline to every student. - choosing the right path, not the easy one. By staying true to our core values of faith, service, and respectful leadership, we create opportunites for our students to grow in the tradition of a loving and learning environment.
