St. Thomas Aquinas High School Reviews

I love this school! I am on my third child to go through and I always tell people there is something for everyone at Aquinas. The feeling of unity among the parents and the students is like nothing I have ever seen. I am a product of Catholic schools and my husband is not but we both agree that St Thomas Aquinas is far superior to anything we had growing up. I love how the faculty interacts with the kids and the spirit is undeniable. I have had children with very different experiences there ranging from varsity athletics, student government, advanced academics ,theater and choir and all have been stellar. These students can’t wait to come back after they graduate and the communion of Saints extends far beyond Kansas. So many people know and respect this school. Once a Saint, always a Saint. Do you and your kids a favor and choose Aquinas.

I am currently a freshman at Saint Thomas Aquinas High School. After first semester, I had the urge to transfer to a different high school because I was “bored and unhappy.” I quickly realized that everyone feels that way in high school at one point or another. After some thought, I realized that Aquinas is the best school I could possibly go to and the perfect fit for me! I recommend anyone come here because on the first day you already feel like you’re part of a family. There are so many events throughout the year and so many great things that I could go on and on about! GO SAINTS💙💛
The school performs very well both academically and in sports. I'd say the school prepares you well for college. Expect to receive a decent amount of homework each night. Teachers are always available if you need help with anything. The school has over 100 state championships, meaning they excel in most sports. There is a wide selection of sports such as golf, tennis, football, bowling, wrestling, lacrosse, baseball, basketball, soccer and others. Many diverse clubs are available to join. Joining a club or sport will help students make new friends. Everybody in the school is friendly and know each other. There are also many strong traditions that immediately make students feel welcome. It is better than the other Catholic schools in the area.
