Ascension is a wonderful and loving school that educates the whole child. I have two kids attending and am so impressed at how they have grown- not just academically but also in their desire to serve other less fortunate than themselves. The diversity at the school is tremendous with great parent involvement.

Do not send your children to this school until you visit all the options that are available in this area. I made a huge mistake for my children and they are now behind in every area. Academically, this program is extremely weak (worksheets from 10 years ago). Most teachers are old and tired and lack

This environment in the past year has become very "clique" oriented, and an extreme amount of favoritism is given to that certain clique of families. Read less

I have taught in a variety of public and private schools over the past 40 years and can attest that Ascension is my all-time favorite. Infants through 5th Grade students,parents, and teachers form a caring family, dedicated to each helping each student be all they can be academically, physically, socially,

Strong leadership from the Head of School, awesome parents who are excited about being a part of their child's educational experience, and caring, experienced, professional teachers make Ascension a superb place for students, parents, teachers, and staff to thrive. A child here cannot get "lost in the crowd" and students leave Ascension at the end of Fifth Grade ready for a successful Middle School experience in any size Middle School, anywhere. Take a tour! You'll feel and experience the difference! Read less

My son was in their ECP (early childhood program) and has advanced to Pre-School thereafter. The school has a very close-family-like feel and the teachers that he has really care about their students. If I had to complain about anything, I think the Pre-School program is too demanding! My son is not

I thought they don't start 'learning' until Pre-K. What I like most about the school is that they make learning fun, so it's not like they are pounding on the students just so they know their alphabets and numbers. The teachers also incorporate learning into their world and activities so that everything they learn is relevant-- Very very good school. Read less

My son attended AES from PreSchool through 5th grade, and was well prepared in all aspects for Middle School. Highlights of AES include the small class sizes, music and art programs and twice-a-week chapel services. Since the school does not include a Middle School, the Fifth Grade provides a great
