I truly feel that Ascension Catholic School is providing my children with the best education possible in Brevard County. As a product of the Catholic and Public schools in Brevard, I only wish that my parents had the ability to keep my brothers, sisters, and me in Catholic school(s) to finish our education. The parent/teacher involvement is exceptional. I am so pleased every day when I drop my children off for school.

I am delighted with the new principal. He has shown great, consistent leadership. His emphasis on high academic standards as well as discipline has been wonderful. A calm, happy atmosphere is prevelent throughout the school.

My little sister goes to Ascension, she cries everyday she comes home because the other students are mean to her...We just moved to Florida. Her teacher is fantastic and is helping her to more than her ability. The students here are very rude, I've seen examples myself. Its a shame parents cant teach their children morals and manners towards other students.

My childrren ejoyed their time there. Class size was large but there are teachers' aides. Teachers really take an interest in their students and work well with the parents.

Ascension has always excelled academically. It has a wonderful new gym and many sports programs. The music program is great with many opportunities for kids to be involved in choirs and band. Parents are always around volunteering. It has a real family atmosphere.

School is a good example of a Catholic elementary school. Family-oriented and not too expensive. Good quality for a reasonable price.

The activities are good and so is the facility,But if you send your kid here you will regret it,I switched to Holy Trinity(it rocks).What ever you do don't send your kids here.They won't be given the attention they deserve.I am an 8th grader now and I still cringe,at that school.

Mt son has done well in the positive environment at this school. He is entering third grade and is looking forward to the challenges. Although class sizes are large, there are few discipline problems and the teachers are able to present material without interruption.

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.
