Teaching approach of the school

It is the school´s responsibility to have the necessary means to best educate in terms of the latest technology and advances, which must always be age-appropriate for the students and used under the instruction of the teacher. But excellent media alone will not educate. Primary attention must be paid to words and written text, to help the children learn by a natural rhythm, and to shape an understanding of the logical structures of thought and language.

At Aquinas School we strive to create a climate of appreciation to aid both learning and personal growth. Dedication to rigorous and consistent studying is necessary in order to acquire both knowledge and development of personal skills, and at the same time serve as a serene acceptance of one´s own limitations.
