Our Lady of the Assumption School is wonderful. It combines the rigorous academics of a Catholic education in a loving and family environment that the kids find challenging, fun and safe. The teachers and administration are dedicated to developing and realizing the academic, social, and moral potential of all of its students. There is not a better school for pre-K through grade 8.

My son has the opportunity of two great things at his school (plus many more): the people and the academics. He comes home every day energized by what he has learned. He quizzes his Dad and I over dinner and in the car. It is fun and rewarding as a parent to see him excited about the new things he learned that day in Spanish or math and science. He is helping me learn new things every day! As a parent, I have the wonderful feeling of comfort as I know first hand that he has wonderful adults looking over him. He recently went through a bad period with his health. The teachers, nurse, principal, other moms and chef all took the time to personally call and text me when he was having a bad day so that I could take even better care of him. His teacher from last year even came to his baseball game and took him for ice cream to help us! It is really an amazing school community or really a family. We are blessed to have wonderful teachers, administrators, parents and students. Thank you Assumption!

This is a wonderful neighborhood Catholic School. The children receive a wonderful foundation for life skills and a rigorous academic education. Yes they are tested, graded, and given spelling tests in elementary school. My children shine in this environment. The Principal is amazing and so is the math and science programs. The children are held accountable and thrive in this environment.

Worth every penny and then some! All of my children have gone to school here and it has made all the differance in the world. The outstanding teaching staff combined with the caring and involved principal as well as a community of parents that support each other and our children is the perfect combination. The children are learning to be productive members of the world.! Everything that is not happening in Puolic schools today!!!!!!

Great School, great staff! It is a breathe of fresh air to know while I'm at work all day that my son is with others that share the same values and beliefs. This is my son's second family. Love it!

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.
