This school is one of the best private Catholic Schools in the area ! My two older children attended and graduated from this school in 2010 and 2013. My 16 year old daughter is a student there now . Aquinas high school has given them a great start into their next chapter of life . The teachers there care about every one of their students and create personal bonds with them . The teachers are very communicative with us as parents whenever you have a question regarding school work and grades, they are very quick to answer.
Even though the school is on the small side they have everything that a public school has from every sport, club , dances, and many more activities . Their sports teams do very well, and are very competitive in their leagues and divisions . My daughters both cheered and played softball and my son played football and 🏀. I currently have two foreign exchange students that attend this school and they have truly become part of the Aquinas Family .

Exceptional education if you take advantage of it. You have to start out running so you do not get left in the dust. What do I mean by this? I mean that there is no time to slack off and you actually have to try to do well in all your classes. There will always be students who make it seem ok to do the minimum requirements, but you have to strive for more this can be good advice as well as a warning. Like I said you must take advantage of everything you can do at this school as small a school it may be they will not be on top of everything for you and what they recommend you do to prep for college and biggest piece of advice is to not be afraid to ask as intimidating as it may be. Also most teachers here are paid a lot less than they would be paid at a public school, they are here for the benefit of the students, do not be afraid to ask for help.
Great school! Small classroom size and very challenging curriculum. Great tradition in their football program. It is amazing to see the Aquinas community react to any needs of the school. The Performing Arts Center looks like a castle and will be treasured by the school once it is built.
