    My daughter started at Assumption this year - she and we love this school. The teachers are great the principal is great the environment is great. We are looking forward to becoming a bigger part of this community and can't wait for our younger daughter to start there next year.

    My kids love Assumption!! You can see it is a school where the parents teachers and Sr. Merris all work together for the best interest of the child. It was the best decision we made as parents to put our children in Assumption.

    This is a great school for children of all abilities. I had 2 children go through Assumption. One is very bright and the other is average. They both were very well prepared for high school. One was placed in a very high level academic program which only 1% of the students are accepted into. The other is doing well in his classes. Assumption prepared them for what is best for each one of them. I constantly hear from their teachers - we can always tell Assumption students. The quality of their work is always outstanding and the students are usually really nice kind kids. Personally I am more concerned with hearing that then the fact that they didn't learn computer programming in 6th grade. They can learn that in high school or college. Learning to be kind do your best work and be the best 'you' was invaluable in their formative years and they got that at Assumption.

    This school is fine for average students and those who find themselves slightly below or slightly above that mark. If you have a truly 'above-average' student you child will probably be more challenged elsewhere. Also if you are set on a Catholic School St. Virgils usually scores higher on standardized test.

    Assumption School will give your child the base for an excellent education. My child went onto Villa Walsh and the College of the Holy Cross. We would not have traded the foundation she received at Assumption for any of the frills offered at a public school. We believe our daughter was taught in a loving and caring Christian environment which has made her a beautiful young women today. Thank you to the staff and administration of Assumption School.

    I've always been somewhat skeptical about the quality of the education my children were getting at Assumption. I dont see the penetration of technology and specialized programs in the class material that I see in the public school. The computer class consists of the class playing educational computer games etc. However I am happy to see how well my children has done for themselves after graduation from assumption. I think the staff and infrastructure could use an infusion of new energy but the base is sound.
