Aquin is an excellent facility for both staff and students. I am a teacher at this school and can honestly say that I have never seen such caring in a school system as I have here. I have worked in both public and parochial schools, and I have found that the religious and moral education that students receive here enhances responsibility, respect, and ownership of action. From a parent standpoint, I feel that my children are receiving a high-quality education and are pushed to their appropriate achievement levels. Their teachers address concerns with me and take appropriate action. I can't imagine working anywhere else or sending my children to any other school than Aquin.
My son just started Kindergarten this year. Jon and I were so nervous about his big adventure. When we walked into the school children were holding doors open for one another, saying hello, and good morning. This is how we start our morning, and loved that is was a warm and welcoming place for our family. Staff greeted us with our names, and we had not even met them yet. Mr. Haverland made sure that we felt comfortable. Mrs. McDermott, my sons teacher, must have had a feeling that "I" was nervous because she emailed me a picture of William having an amazing time his first day of school. Aquin has been an amazing adventure for my family and I. My daughter is so excited to be joining the Aquin family next year. My husband and I are excited for the growth and development within our family because of Aquin. My grandma has a saying up in her kitchen that stated, "a family that prays together, stays together." We believe that because we picked Aquin our children will be stronger in situations that most children are weak. Thank you Aquin!
Aquin is a wonderful school with great teachers and support staff! My girls love going there and I enjoy the fact that they are not only learning intellectually but also spiritually. They have a great environment that is conducive to learning with small class sizes and up-to-date technology to help them grow. I highly recommend Aquin to anyone and look forward to my younger children beginning their journeys there!!
Our four daughters are very happy at Aquin. We are pleased with the attention they receive there! Small class sizes is a big plus!
Wonderful people and a warm feeling! I Highly recommend this school! Our children love it there and I am very happy with the quality of education.
Aquin has top notch caring teachers that challenge every child to the best of their ability. Highly recommend.
I am a huge fan of Aquin and have been for many years. I actually was a student at Aquin many years ago. What makes Aquin a great school is the love of the teachers and their passion for our students learning.
Aquin is a great school to send your kids to. Currently we have three children enrolled. Aquin is just the right size...it's big enough that they can offer a wide array of opportunities for the kids, yet small enough that they can have small class sizes and focus on each individual student's needs. I firmly believe that catholic education is essential to building a strong foundation for children that will help them succeed & make good, ethical decisions throughout their life. Aquin does a terrific job starting that important foundation!
Aquin is a great school all around! The teachers provide excellent one on one time if needed by a child. I am truly blessed to have such a great school to send out kids to.
Aquin is a great school. I feel my children are getting a wonderful education. The staff is great to work with and my kids enjoy going to school each day.
Aquin is a top notch school!! I went to Aquin and I am so happy to send my children there!

My children's school has great teachers who care and educate every child. We are very grateful for all that they do!
This is a wonderful catholic school that provides my children with all of their educational needs. The close relationship that each grade has is unbelievable. it makes me want to go back to school again!
Aquin Elementary has dedicated teachers and staff and provides a wonderful learning atmosphere to its students
This school is AMAZING! The teachers work hard to support the parents. This isn't just a school rather it is a community.
Aquin has been a great choice for our family. Currently all three of our children are enrolled and we feel that they are getting a great education. We have a child that was having some difficulty with some of the classroom subject matter, and the Aquin teachers and principal have been more than attentive to our needs and our children's needs. The school has been able to exceed our expectations from an educational standpoint.
Aquin Elementary in Cascade, IA is a great school. The teachers are outstanding and all three of our children perform above there grade point level on the Iowa Test Of Basic Skills. I love the help that each teacher gives to every student so they can achive their very best. Many Thanks, Randy Lyons
