My child attends Ascension Lutheran School and we absolutely love this private, Christian school! The small class sizes and multi-grade classrooms have improved my son's learning capabilities in a safe, Christian environment. The teachers and administrative faculty are focused on nurturing each student's learning process which has proven helpful with my son. I would highly recommend this school for anyone looking for a loving, attentive, Christian atmosphere.

My child has grown immensely since entering this school. His teacher, Mrs. Carbon, focuses on his individual needs and customizes his academics. The multi-grade classrooms have helped my son prepare for and review lessons. We have open communication directly with the Principal and staff.
