This school is a joke! Do not waste your children's academics and your money on this terrible school. The faculty is a joke, they are incompetent when it comes to organization. The children are terrible in the school and there is nothing but drama in the school. Don't waste your time on this overpriced
... Read more uneducating school. My daughter left here because the school was so terrible, the kids were so terrible and bullying bad and the faculty was even worse. She then moved to a public school that has very high student academic success scores and was so behind the first few months from Aquinas' lack of education. The school doesn't focus on your kids education, they focus on how much their pocketing from you. It's a joke don't waste your money. I would rate this 0 stars if I could. The parents are also over involved when it comes to their kids and sports. Doing whatever they can to make their kid the sports star. Read less

Administration is very slow and incompetent. The secretaries are very rude and easily stressed right when you step in the office. Especially the attendance office. They are very forgetful and irritable.

they're focused on students as a whole person, but more as academic 1st, good citizen 2nd, sports 3rd. I have had other kids in public school & I laugh @ what they call drama or problems here & never mind, everybody cares here & most every kid goes to a real college...

I attend Aquinas and it is an alright school not the best academic wise, sports wise, or teacher wise. However it is a very close knit community making it very safe for everyone. There are virtually no fights and no bad substances, but a lot of drama between students. If your child does not play sports,

Sadly if your child does excel in most of these areas Aquinas will just weigh them down and limit their potential mostly because of the quality as SOME teachers and their veiws on how school life should be run.

Aquinas is hands down the best college prep education in San Bernardino. The students expect to go to college, and counseling is geared toward making sure that all the necessary requirements are met. In response to some of the earlier posts, Aquinas offers drama, instrumental music, and art programs.

wonderful academics, great class size, more than 95% go to college. I went there for high school and it is ten times better now.

This school does an great job of providing an excellent place for developing the whole person and preparing young people for college. The faculty cares about each and every one of those kids. There's plenty of sports opportunities, clubs etc. Responsibility, character and integrity are grown here.

Excellent college preparatory private school! Most teachers are well expereinced but a few are green and don't last. Much better alternative to the local public schools which fail to challenge or prepare students adequately for college. It would be nice if there were more extracurricular activities offered
... Read more e.g. band, but the school is small and unable to support all activities you may find at a public school. The major sports are represented at least. Academic counselors may not be equipped as well to identify students who need assistance or need and extra push to get to college. Don't be fooled though just becuasue it is a private catholic school. Many students get into the same trouble as public school kids but are better at hiding it. Read less
