History of Aquinas School

Aquinas School is a Dominican educational institution established for the holistic formation of the young to become men of truth and compassion.

1965 unfolded a new horizon among the Spanish Dominican fathers with the founding of an exclusive school for boys. It was built on a beautifully landscaped three-hectare lot at 183 F. Blumentritt St, San Juan, Metro Manila. It was named after the brilliant saint, St. Thomas Aquinas also considered the patron saint of all catholic schools.
