Member Spotlight: St. Thomas the Apostle School
St. Thomas the Apostle School has been an Oroville Chamber member since 2006! Teaching grades K – 8th, they strive to offer a values-based education to the children who attend. They focus on spiritual, academic, and emotional development through their philosophy to provide a Catholic education, so each student can become a total person.
When we visited, we were met by a friendly staff who was more than willing to tell us about St. Thomas the Apostle School. According to their latest Progress Report, 6th, 7th and 8th graders at St. Thomas have a higher reading proficiency compared to local public schools. The 8th grade class that graduated this year had a math proficiency score 1.5x higher than the district average.
