We moved my son to Aquinas Academy after a terrible kindergarten year at public school. We have absolutely loved his teachers and the principal and the environment he is in. Everyone greets you and is genuinely happy to see my son there. He also loves going to school more this year and has enjoyed learning about religion while in school.

Aquinas Academy is a great place to send a child. Children learn Christian values and the discipline of hard work is instilled in the kids daily. There is a positive atmosphere with an energetic principal and staff. And of course the freedom to openly pray daily and thank God for his blessings.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
