St. Thomas More Middle School is committed to creating life-long learners that can meet the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing world and incorporate their faith to establish life-long norms and standards of moral conduct. We focus on student achievement, professional collaboration, and parental involvement to provide a Catholic educational community that is supportive, nurturing and caring. Our mission powerfully states the purpose of the Rapid City Catholic School System every day:
Developing Personal and Academic Excellence in the Catholic Tradition.
Official school records are kept in the protection of the school unless a student transfers to another school and an official transfer slip, signed by the parent, is submitted to release records. The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 guarantees parents and guardians of students under the age of 18, and all students 18 years or older, the right to view records at any time in the Administrative Office. Parents are asked to make an appointment prior to such a visit. For a complete reading of the Law please see: http://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html
