    Assumption is a great school. This is where students are challenged to go beyond their grade level. Our strongest asset is our Catholic Identity. Religion is taught in all subjects throughout the day. Students learn to live their Faith not just learn about it. We are all one big family working together for a better world!

    Assumption School has a very caring and family environment. The class sizes allow for very personalized instruction for the students. My son has learned so much in his Kindergarten class that it has amazed me an my husband. The teachers really take the time to make sure that thier instruction matches the needs of thier students. He has also been able to make a lot of very good friends with students of all ages due the genuie kindness of the students. I recommend anyone in the area to make Assumption thier choice for a private education.

    We as a family love this school. Our son started his education here and we will be sending him all the way through until 8th grade. The teachers made us feel welcome right away. They always keep you in the loop going over his strengths with us and showing us where he needed more help. The teachers will email call and they have the greatest parent website ever ( Wiki - it shows what each days homework is ) with out having to ask the kids ! My son was struggling with reading in 1st grade and the teach volunteered to stay with him after school until he was understanding better and caught up to his class !! We looked at other school in the area and the communication and helpfulness at this school was top notch Whenever I reach out to the school someone is always there to answer my questions !! We were lucky to be able to get him into such a well rounded school with high ranking academics .

    My son has attended Assumption since he was in Pre-K. He is in 4th grade this year. The staff is caring and decicated to the students. As a public school teacher I see too much pressure placed on students and staff and standardized tests. At Assumption the emphasis is on the students and preparing them to be well rounded individuals. Instruction is differentiated to meet the needs of each student. Class sizes are small which allows the teacher to spend more time working with each student. The staff is outstanding and are more like an extended family to my son and I. The students not only show respect to their teachers but also to each other which is something I do not see often in the public school. My son loves Assumption and just the other day said "Mom thank you for sending me to my school. It is a great school to go to".

    Beyond grateful for Assumption... my son was experiencing bullying and having difficulty finding the right environment for his academic needs as well as social needs. Assumption has been a blessing to our entire family. My son is thriving on both accounts!

    Assumption School has an excellent academic curriculum from Pre-K to 8th grade. Also has one of the few all day Pre-K program in the area. This Pre-K program is very helpful for families with both working parents. Also the discipline aspect of the school is second to none. I am very impress and satisfied with Assumption School s academic quality and moral/discipline aspects that our daughter is receiving every day.

    Assumption School in Manchester is a great Catholic Community. The school my son was enrolled in for six years closed and we were faced with the task of changing schools. After visiting several schools in the Manchester we decided Assumption was the best fit for him. It is a wonderful faith based community with small class sizes. I am very happy with Assumption and so is my son. The teachers and staff are very caring. I was also impressed with the way the parents reached out to us. I highly recommend Assumption for a great education as well as teaching core values.

    I am an alumni of Assumption School. I am a parishioner of the Church. I am a proud parent of two children at Assumption School. I am a teacher of kindergarten at the school for 23 years. I love this school! The teachers are fantastic. They work with the students one on one if needed and truly view each student as an individual. They are always communicating with the parents so we are updated about our child's progress and education. It is definitely a comfortable and family type environment!

    Assumption School is an amazing place for our son to learn the academics the Gospel and how to be a kind caring and moral person. It's quite apparent that the principal and teachers put their hearts and souls into their work. The smaller class sizes allow for much personal attention for each child. In addition to the academic curriculum there are opportunities for students to participate in activities such as band soccer basketball golf technology club mock trial competition chess club homework club liturgy club mad science club and student council. Before and after care programs allow my husband and I to work full time without having to leave our jobs to transport our son. The many community/charity events in which the school participates are teaching our son to be a generous and giving person. Assumption parents are a great group of people as well who care deeply about the school and its future. I can't think of a better place for us to be.

    My family and I moved to Manchester last November. We made the rounds and looked at all the schools in the area. My son was coming from a public school and we were concerned about the his academics as well as the acceptance factor entering a new (private) school. Our fears were dismissed when we looked into Assumption. The staff and teachers were very welcoming and my son was instantly welcomed by the other students. The academics are definitely more challenging but my son has adapted well and having homework every night is now the norm. Communication between the school and parents is also excellent everyday we get either paperwork sent home with my son or an email with the information. My son looks forward to going to school everyday and has already made good friends. We look forward to the rest of the year rest-assured that he is receiving a quality education in a nurturing safe environment.

    My son is currently enrolled at Assumption School as a Pre-K student. This is a wonderful school with loving and caring teachers. The education is top notch. Most importantly I feel my son is safe and secure in this school. I am happy I made the decision to send my son to this school and look forward to the years that follow.

    Assumption School is a super learning environment! Unlike public schools the kids are instructed in Faith and Reason. Also the student to teacher ratios ensure each student gets the attention they need and deserve and the kids have plenty of green grass and playground equipment to expend their extra energy )!

    Throughout the six years our children have attended Assumption School we have been continually reminded our choice of schools was the correct one. From the opening prayers & flag raising in the morning until they finish in homework club we know our children are in a caring educationally excellent environment. They are constantly challenged to go beyond their safe zone yet are given individual attention when they struggle with a concept. We would urge any family looking for a learning environment where children are given the tools to succeed to strongly consider the foundation Assumption will provide for them.

    I love this school! I have two children in preschool and they love to go. Within a week of being enrolled I could see academic progress on letters. It is a warm caring school and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody. We were only planning to stay for preschool but we are so happy we are absolutely staying!

    I went to Assumption from 3rd to 8th grade and graduated last year. Before I went to Assumption I went to Keeney School in Manchester. The decision to move me to Assumption was one of the best decisions my parents ever made. My experiences at Assumption were great! I was immediately accepted and made lots of great friends whom I am still friends with now. The teachers are also excellent. They are so dedicated to giving us the best education they can but are also very loving and nurturing. They are always there for you if you need help with anything- whether it be academic or social needs. I loved going to Assumption School and once you send your child there you will never want to send them anywhere else. )
