I am truly amazed at the dedication of staff and parents. Assumption school may be small, but it has a BIG heart!!

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".

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.

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!

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!

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 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.

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.

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. :)

My daughter has attended Assumption school for the last 3 years. We chose Assumption because we wanted our daughter to be in a safe learning enviornment. What we got was more than we could have asked for. The teachers at Assumption take the responsibility to educated your children not just on curricular materials but in life skills. All of the teachers know all of the students by name, something that we know does not happen in larger schools. My daughter has been with the same children since Pre-K, this has allowed us as the parents to not only get to know the children but thier parents as well. It is not uncommon for families of the school to get together on the weekends and spend quality time together. Choosing Assumption school for our daughter was the best decision we could have made for our child.

Assumption school in Manchester is the only school I will send my young children too.The teachers at the school care about my children and treat them like they were there own.At the same time the disciplene is not to be taken lightly. Students are held accountable for their actions and punishment if deserved will follow.The involvement of parents is strong in the school with many parents helping out wherever needed and some on more projects and activities than one or two.The bottom line here is if you want the best education and a place where your child will exceed even your expectations theres no place better than Assumption School.

Assumption School is a wonderful, safe place for children to grow and be nurtured. I have two children here and I cannot tell you how happy I am with their academic as well as social growth. The teachers here are first rate in creating a challenging, creative environment for their students to learn. Also, it is a small school where everyone knows all the kids and is always looking out for one another. Both of my children have excelled academically here and I feel they are being taught all the important lessons that will make them excel in all aspects of their life.
