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.
