    "Aquinas seems like the right school until you realize the only thing they really care about is sports. If you're a "star athlete" you're out first before anyone else and always get special treatment. It doesn't matter what anyone else has to say because if one of the star athletes says there aren't any cliques even if there are then that's how it goes. Teachers treat the student like children even when they are 5 days away from graduating. One of my teachers thought it would be best to put us in "time out" my senior year because one person asked a question and she didn't like it so we spent 50 minutes in time out instead of learning. All the teachers who enjoyed teaching or were considered the best teachers in the school left and it's not a surprise why."

    "This school had its ups and downs but in all seriousness i loved it here. I have made friends here that i still hang out with today. During my four years there the school was very heavy on sports and they still are so if you are into athletics this is the school to go to. They have shows for each of there arts program such as theater, music, visual arts, and band. The food could be better especially for what students and parents are paying for. The school is not in the best neighborhood but nothing terrible has every happened there and most students are well behaved.The school is catholic based so they do have mass once a month nut all religions are welcomed."

    "As I journey my years at Aquinas, there are some good and bad times. I love the fact that the teachers treat you like family. Personally, I am very close with my teachers and they always are here to help me if I need it. I also like how the students are the main focus of the school. We always see the students taking control and initiative roles in school which I find amazing and interesting. It's nice to not have a bunch of adults control my daily life at school, instead my classmates make decisions. In middle school I had a difficult time fitting in and I was bullied quite a lot. It took me a long time to realize how to deal with my feelings and manage my depression, but I do believe my negative experiences have strengthened me as a person.Now I am no longer afraid to speak out my mind and my beliefs. I look forward in continuing my journey at Aquinas and excited to see where it takes me in the future."
