Academics

Curriculum

At Aquinas American School, we look for an integral teaching. A training that combines the acquisition of curricular content, the development of personal skills of inquiry, reflection and communication, and the formation of a personality with a critical spirit, an international mentality and a vocation for leadership and service to the community. Our curriculum allows access to the University in Spain or abroad. In AAS we give great importance to the domain of language, since this is the instrument of thought. The work in class and at home, the type of projects and work carried out by the students, facilitates a high level of reading comprehension and a great capacity to expose and articulate ideas, both in writing and orally. This guarantees the maximum development of intellectual abilities and facilitates the learning of different subjects in both the humanities and the sciences. Our educational proposal is based on putting the new generations in contact with reality. This is the end of all curriculum. And the teacher acts the medium or magician (hence magister) that helps the child or young person to enter reality and get to know it. The opportunities for this are: reading, learning a discipline, sports, theater, singing, dialogue. All this allows the intellectual, moral and aesthetic maturation of the student. We know that the teaching staff is the key, because every educational proposal is a personal proposal. Make present the good, the true and the beautiful, through a group of passionate people who have a true educational vocation is the principle to be able to train our young people.

Extra-Curricular

No well-rounded liberal arts education is complete without developing an appreciation for the fine arts and music. At Aquinas American School, we want our students to be able to invest in them the time these disciplines deserve. Enriching activities such as theater, music, and painting are fully integrated into the school day. Our educational community wants to encourage and develop the skills, talent and creativity that children naturally have in these disciplines. Other activities such as horse-back riding, tennis, ice skating, swimming or robotics, film, school newspaper, yearbook club among others, are offered.
