I love being here! Ascension Episcopal School is indeed a Christian community of talented and dedicated teachers who are passionate about helping kids. It is obvious when you walk into the classrooms, not only are the teachers qualified, they work with students to guide, teach and help them reach their academic goals. With a challenging curriculum, small class sizes and qualified teachers, each child is able to learn and understand while balancing academics with other after school programs like different activities and sports among others. I will absolutely recommend AES to any parent.
