If you are looking for a GREAT school, look no more ! At RA you will find highly qualified, caring, nurturing, sincere role models for your child --- not only in the faculty, but in the student body. My child has attended RA since Pre-K and is leaps and bounds ahead of her peers ... intellectually, spiritually,

When all is said and done, you will have a well-educated, well-rounded, successful child. I know I made the right choice for my child just as my parents made when they elected to send me to RA. The success stories are abundant, just ask around! Better yet, attend RA's open house to see for yourself. Read less

Looking for school for your children can be a daunting and stressful task, but the moment I walked into the RA Open House, I immediately felt the care and the love your children would be getting. I mean not the commercial kind of love - the real one - and you'll feel it. My kid has been attending RA
... Read more since Kindergarten. I have to praise RA for the disciplines the kids are receiving, my child's performance has never been a question at least until now (thank God), but I personally think the environment the kids are leaving in also plays a big role in the education of our children. RA offers just that. I have to warn you though that in a private school like RA, the tuition, the dues and the volunteer works can throw you off balance; also, RA don't have lunch program either so be ready to prepare those sandwiches every morning (which I personalIy enjoy doing gladly because I know what my child is eating), but with your kids' future in mind, it is totally worth a great investment. Will definitely recommend RA. Read less

Anyway, For my child It was the the best school that he attended. The staff was caring, the principal was very helpful and easily available any time of the
... Read more day. Each class had a teacher and an aide that would assist the teacher. The teachers communicate with you without any prior appointments, on a daily basis you can ask about your child performance. Children have plenty of exercise and school is very neat. I think that comparing to public schools in the area, it is the best private school and the only drawback is the cost. The Resurrection Ascension school is the best choice in Middle Village and I strongly recommend it for any Read less

I graduated from RA and although the mandatory fundraisers and volunteer work can get on your nerves, I feel that it prepared me for high school in the best way.
