As an Apple Distinguished School since 2015, Aquinas High School is one of a few innovative schools in Southern California focused on integrating a rigorous college-prep curriculum with the most effective teaching practices and technologies. By using the powerful tools in iPad, we strive to redefine teaching and learning. Students take on projects that are deeply meaningful to them through illustrating, acting, and capturing the world around them in video and picture. Our learners create engaging videos, thoughtful podcasts, compelling illustrations, and effective presentations and essays. Aquinas continues to pioneer different ways that iPad and Apple can cultivate a more meaningful, engaging, and relevant learning environment.
