  • I was a student who graduated in 1975. I remember Ascension School as the best school I ever attended. Great Job! Many good memories!

  • This review should come under the heading 'archives' review. I attended this school from 1960 through 1966 and talk about it to my grandchildren. Although it was extremely strict, I received an excellent education and teach my grandchildren some of the tricks to remembering math and English that I learned from the nuns and lay teachers. I hope this school is as good as it was then. If so, the parents reading this can rest assured that their children will go far. I have wonderful memories from this school and the fabulous teachers I had.

  • Hardworking, highly motivated staff. Safe, nurturing environment. Highly motivated parent community: strong PTA. Strong on academics and personal development. Good variety of afterschool extracurricular programs.
