We welcome you to Aquin Schools. This is just the beginning of your overview of our schools. We welcome you and your child to see first-hand the opportunities that an Aquin education will provide.
Aquin is a place:
Students learn essential values, such as:
High academic standards meet high moral standards.
Excellent teachers are also excellent role models.
Values like courage, compassion, competency and compassion are not just encouraged-they are expected.
Mrs. Elizabeth Heitkamp, Superintendent
Assessment is an important component of an educational program. At Aquin, we test students to measure attainment of curriculum goals. The results are used to plan for individual and group success.
For standardized testing, we use the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) in Grades 3, 5 and 7 and plan to utilize the new Aspire tests which are aligned with the ACT test taken by juniors for college admittance. Aquin does not use the PARCC test.
