Assumption was by far the best decision I have made this far in my life and you are free to be yourself here. Teachers are wonderful and really want you to succeed. I was more then prepared for college by the time i graduated. Small class sizes and block scheduling so you have time to study and do homework within two days. Definitely felt at home and loved by everyone. So many things to get involved with and you really find friends here who love you. love going back and visiting.

I graduated from Assumption ten years ago. The athletic programs it offered led to a full scholarship in college, and it's academic programs prepared me for higher education and my career. When I entered my freshman year, I was shy and not confident in myself. Leaving, I was outspoken and possessed leadership qualities. I am still in close contact with many of my friends from AHS, and I would absolutely recommend this school to anyone!

Assumption is an excellent school that challenges their students. They offer a variety of class levels and electives. I transferred my sophomore year from a public school and was amazed by the differences in the school's facilities. The teachers and counselors are amazing, I can actually say I love going to school everyday. The AP program is one of the best around, and I love my schedule. My teachers actually challenge me, unlike my old school. The care and love seeing us reach our highest potential. The student's here are welcoming to new peer's, I was greeted with open arms. They offer great tuition aid, without it I wouldn't be able to go here. I truly ache for others who aren't as fortunate and don't get to go here. When comparing Assumption's ACT average to JCPS, it's like night and day. I never want to leave this place, it's like home to me.

Two of my daughters previously went to Assumption and my youngest is currently attending. I could not be more pleased with AHS for preparing my daughters to be educated, independent women. My money was well spent!!!!

Assumption was the key for my daughter to become a strong, independent, confident young woman. They nurture the heart, soul, and spirit of their girls, not just their minds.

I was surprised at how Assumption strives to make sure each student finds there own niche. My daughter's growth both educationally and as a person has been great. Assumption has made that happen. It was the perfect fit for her.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
