Aquinas has excellent academic programs and teachers. Students start taking Spanish twice a week starting in the 1st grade. My son has loved learning Spanish. Students also have art, music, computer, and library during the week. There are many extracurricular activities offered and the Extend Day staff are amazing! We love Aquinas!

My 2 sons attended this school since the Pre-K to 8th grade. It gave them a good Catholic foundation. I pray that the values they learned at Aquinas stay with them for a lifetime. It can be a challenge for working parents to spend enough time every day (especially on school days) instilling values, but sending our kids to Aquinas has been comforting so that they practice the virtues in their everyday life. They have a strong STEM, athletics, arts, and music programs. However, limited in the special needs resources.

My family has had an extremely positive experience at Aquinas. The staff have always made my children and me feel extremely welcome and valued within the community. The other parents are very nice. My children have had interesting projects to work on, and we've particularly loved the STEM program.

Aquinas is the best! We could not be happier with or choice to have our kids attend this amazing school. The teachers are engaged; the students are of good character and the administration really cares about the families!

St Thomas Aquinas is a rigorous option for a middle school as it has Stem and Robotics and also higher-level English classes. It is a great choice also if you want to develop the spiritual side of your child and help them to learn discipline in all they do. One thing I absolutely love is that my child can pray all the time, as I know that prayer changes things! My child loves math and loves his science classes, he has had amazing learning in English and also grammar which is a class that I wish I had as a kid! Did I say there are some great teachers at Aquinas (Ms. Manley, Ms. Reale, Ms. Sause, Ms. Mendell, Ms. Zengierski, just to name a few. Aquinas has amazing plays and also for the musical side my son has thoroughly enjoyed the band and you can also participate in Honor Band. There is an awesome field trip for the band participants that they all really look forward to. As a parent no matter where your child goes it is important to stay involved and visible as this is important for your child's growth and development. This is my 3rd child through middle school. We made the right decision!

Every private school parent is encouraged to help the school in whatever way he can. Here are some things you can do to make a contribution to your school.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
