St. Thomas School worked closely with Microsoft through the development and testing of the OneNote Class Notebook Creator, a new app that allows teachers to create a personal workspace for every student.
Beginning in 2012, St. Thomas School added grades 7and 8 to offer a complete middle school to its students. This past June 12, St. Thomas School celebrated its first 8th Grade graduation, a milestone that marked the first full cycle in its expansion to become a complete Middle School.
St. Thomas School has been selected to participate in the Microsoft Innovative Schools World Tour because it is a showcase example of the following Innovation Topics:
1. 1:1 learning environments. Students work on their own devices and can use technology at any time to access educational tools.
2. Physical learning environments. Focus on physical spaces, seating, and atmosphere to encourage collaboration, creativity, and learning.
3. Project-based learning environments. Students work in groups to solve problems, make decisions, and go on knowledge quests, while the teacher acts as facilitator.
