At Aquinas, there is a HUGE focus on the Catholic faith. The number one goal at Aquinas is to strengthen the students faith. A lot of times, this gets in the way of a focus on academics. At Aquinas in order, priorities are Faith, Football, Academics, Other Sports, Clubs. In my experience, I have loved some of the teachers and strongly disliked others. I have seen that most all of the new teachers Aquinas has are awesome! While a lot of the teachers that have been there for 15+ years don't seem to care or put the effort in anymore. Aquinas is very strict with their policies that students must follow, but teachers can get away with saying and doing anything. Aquinas is also a very conservative school. The school side of Aquinas is about a 1.5 but the athletics are about a 4 so I gave Aquinas 3 stars. Aquinas has very good sports coaches.

I know that it’s a small school, but I wish they offered more classes. We’re allowed to take classes at the public school and we’re allowed to take college classes online, but those have to be requested and approved. Most of the teachers are pretty good, but some of them were obviously only hired because they could coach a sports team. Besides all that, it’s all right.
I loved Aquinas, it's an incredible environment with faith filled people. This school allows students to grow in knowledge but also their faith, with religion classes taught by a staff of 6 priests. It also is a school of traditional catholic methods without modern intervention. In all a great place for kids to grow into hardworking, kind, and well rounded individuals
