My child is attending Assumption as a middle school student. Last year, in his 2013-2014 year, he found that there was little improvement in the academics and the quality of the teachers and staff provided at Assumption.

I have loved watching my son grow at Assumption. He is given a tough, advanced curriculum that is above and beyond local public schools. The warm and caring teachers take extra steps to ensure every child understands the lessons or gets the help they need. The children respect each other and understand

It is sad to see the comments of some of the parents who typed with one hand while a pitchfork was in the other. It s ironic that as a society we are teaching our children about prevention and recognition of bullying and there is a gaggle of parents cyber-bullying the school and its staff. My son continues to receive a great education from caring teachers and that s what matters to me. Read less

Current administration of the school is incompetent, leading to mass teacher resignations and big decline in enrollment (213 figure currently shown is way high). Neither the headmaster nor principal had experience with school administration prior to coming to Assumption in 2012, and it shows. I am
... Read more not in a position to comment on the new teachers; I hope they are great, but they have big shoes to fill. My advice to parents who are looking at this school is to speak with MANY parents, and also to consider the news articles appearing in the press shortly after the teachers resigned. Google is your friend. I am a former parent (kids there many years) who has moved on. Assumption has moved on too, with new teachers and new technology, and I hope the school has a great future, but the quality of the administration matters, and until the two current leaders acquire certain skills/traits (organization, responsiveness, some humility owing to their inexperience, better judgment) or are replaced with a better team, don't be surprised if teacher turnover and other measures of dissatisfaction remain high. I do wish the current Assumption community all the best. Read less
