Aquinas Middle School is a grade 7 and 8 Catholic School. It is a part of Aquinas Catholic Schools. Aquinas Middle School is located in the Aquinas Schools building on the corner of West Avenue and Cass Street in La Crosse.
During the 1992-93 school year, the increasing coordination of the seven Catholic elementary schools in the Greater La Crosse Area was made manifest with the foundation of the Aquinas Middle School. After three years of study, it was recognized that the unique needs of grade 7 and grade 8 students could be best met in a larger program that could sustain a number of specialty areas that any individual grade school could not sustain. Aquinas Middle School is located in a special wing of the Aquinas Schools building on the corner of West Avenue and Cass Street in La Crosse. In order to house both Aquinas Middle School and Aquinas High School, the building underwent a comprehensive $500,000 renovation underwritten by the Reinhart Family Foundation.
Aquinas Middle School currently uses three teams of teachers – Core 7, Core 8 and Encore teams – working together to address the total needs of each student
