My children attend preschool here and love it! They are always telling us that going to school is their favorite part of the day. The in the PreSchool and Elementary School work hard to meet the students need. We plan to leave them here through Elementary School! All the teachers are highly qualified.

My son wen here for 3 yrs, we loved the teachers and principal. My son was happy and educated in safe enviroment.. We came from a very expensive private school and this school offers a great learning enviroment and nice kids. Public schools in AZ are so poor, that when my son left for 6th grade we had him tested at public and he was an entire year ahead!

This has been a really great school so far. My daughter is in PreK and I am trying to decide whether to switch her to a public school or a private school. The teachers and administration here are very supportive and work with the parents if there is a need. I love the impact a Christian Education has on my daughter as well. There is a difference in respect when compared to public education students.

This school is terrible when dealing with issues even at a young age I would STOP to consider sending my child or your own to this school there are better ones out there. The staff (admin) is should be a shame of their non-actions!!!

This is my daughters second year at Ascension. She has learned so much. At 4 she is able to write her first and last name. She is also starting to read. Ascension is a great school with well trained teachers. Since it goes up to 5th grade the Preschool and PreK get to also participate in the Christmas Program and end of school program. We really feel like part of the family.

This is my daughters first year in school. She is in the 3 year old preschool class. She loves going to school and loves her teacher. They are getting a introduction of the religious foundation that a 3 year old can understand. I just love the small class sizes.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
