My experience at Aquinas High School was amazing! It has a family aspect that helps everyone feel welcomed and supported. Throughout my years here I have grown in my relationship with God, learned life lessons, and made amazing memories. I can now say I am ready to go to college!

I loved that Aquinas High School was a private, Catholic school that was very centered on the growth of its students. It provided a lot of opportunity for students to not only grow academically, but in leadership and other key areas. The staff were very friendly, especially those in administration. Their outreach to the surrounding Catholic partner schools is also very notable. In recent years, there has been many renovations, and though the school is not in the most ideal location, its campus is one of the gems hidden in San Bernardino. If I were to be living in the area as an adult, I would love to send my kids to Aquinas.
As a current senior at Aquinas I can say that the school is amazing with its AP and Honors courses, its small class sizes, and its helpful teachers. As well as multiple Apple-distinguished teachers who help guide students in using IPads and technology that is given. Also the school offers amazing clubs, extracurricular activities, and programs. Only downside is that with newer years, there are lesser classes. Also the administration in the school is ok. Though they seem like they care about the school, really all they care about is their own pride.
