School Reviews

ASA is THE PERFECT school for students that have a talent or passion for an activity outside school. The student body includes serious athletes, actors, singers and others that make the most of their time away from school. It has been a gift for my daughter, an equestrian, to receive top-notch academic instruction while competing in her sport at a national level. Even though there aren't many sports and clubs provided by the school, I'm going to give the highest rating in each because it gives students the opportunity to pursue sports and other activities more than any other private school in Houston! Thank you ASA!
