I am both a teacher and a parent at assumption school. I am also an alum of the school. I love the school. The teachers are the best and the parents help make our job a whole lot easier. As a parent, I feel more then comfortable with the school and am very pleased with what my child has learned so far. It is a great place to work as well as a great school for my child. Come check us out!

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.

My daughter entered 4th grade at Assumption in December 2003. She has made terrific progress and growth. The staff, students and school family have been very supportive and helpful to our whole family. I believe that I made the BEST choice for her by moving her to Assumption.It will be our second home for the next 5 years!

Assumption stresses academic excellence while educating the student in a moral atmosphere that focuses on being kind and helpful to all. Ourfamily's high school students who have matriculated through Assumption are experiencing great high school careers, thanks to the stellar training and preparation they received from the caring, motivated teachers at this 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.

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.
