School Notes

  • Ascension Lutheran School and Preschool is maintained by the congregation of Ascension Lutheran Church.  Our school’s purpose is to assist parents in their God-given obligation to bring up their children in the “training and instruction of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4)
  • We strive to help parents in raising Christ-centered, well educated members of our society, with a solid foundation based on Christian values.
  • We offer a well-rounded, high quality education, all in a safe, family-oriented environment.
  • Ascension Lutheran School offers both an elementary program for grades K-6 and Junior High program for grades 7-8.
  • The basis of our education is a Christ-centered
  • approach to all areas of our students’ lives.
  • We provide daily instruction in God’s Word as well as a well-rounded curriculum including science, mathematics, phonics, reading, English, social studies, US history, spelling, handwriting, music, art, and physical education.
  • These subjects are taught in light of the principles set forth in God’s Word.
  • All staff members of Ascension Lutheran Preschool meet the proper requirements of the state of California in early childhood education.
  • This includes being well trained in areas of preventative health and safety practices.
  • Teachers and staff at Ascension Lutheran Preschool make it a priority to
  • understand the development of young children.
  • In this way, we are able to
  • provide a program that reflects the developmental level of each child, enriching the child’s life with valuable educational
  • experiences.  We provide a program that reflects the developmental level of each child through active and quiet times; individual, small,
  • and large group activities; and indoor and outdoor play.
