School Reviews

  • Recommended May 02, 2013 - Ascension Lutheran School provides a wonderful, friendly, and loving environment for children to grow and learn and for families to interact in a Christian environment. I have worked at Ascension for almost 3 years, and in my 15+ years of working with children, youth, and teens, I have never seen a Church and School that is more committed to providing a quality Christian education to all who apply. If you are looking for a school that is willing to go the extra mile to ensure the success of its student''s, then look no further than Ascension! - Posted by Administrator
