Dear Parents,

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you as parents make.  An environment that not only has high academic standards but seeks to shape the students’ moral character, is a win-win for families and our community as a whole.  We are proud to welcome you to St. Thomas More.

Since opening our doors in 1966, we have educated over 2,750 alumni.  Currently, St. Thomas More School serves over 300 families and 500 children in pre-school through 8th grade.  The teachers and staff at STM are committed to teaching our students with high academic expectations while providing a Christ-centered experience for them to grow and learn. As a testament to our academic standards, each year, on average, our 8th grade students score at least two grade level equivalents above the national average in both Math and English Language Arts on our standardized testing.  We continue to maintain our accreditation through both Missouri Non-Public Accrediting Association and AdvancED.

Above all, we are committed to educating the total child and nurturing their talents in an inclusive environment. Daily religion class, weekly mass, sacramental preparation, and service to the community guide our students and provide a unique foundation for life-long spiritual growth.  Each grade level focuses on service opportunities which ensures that charitable outreach is taught and experienced by all of our students

St. Thomas More School is fostered by, and thriving because of, our supportive parish community.  Our church and school allow opportunities for our students, parents, grandparents and neighbors to celebrate life’s milestones, serve those in need, and share their talents among our “big family”.

We sincerely thank you for your interest in St. Thomas More School.  Please feel free to call us at 816-942-5581 and we would be honored to answer any questions or give you a tour of our wonderful school.  We and our dedicated teachers would love to share the “Good News” about how St. Thomas has been making a difference for our 50 years!
