Everyday we had the hardest time to get our kid to go to school at Ascension. He hated school. We switched to woodvale elem, best thing we ever did , Much better school, better teachers, My kid now loves school
I am a student at AES currently. I am a freshmen and have been at AES since 8th grade. Ascension is such an amazing school and there is no other school like it. The love that flows through the school is amazing and all the teachers want to be there. There are many opportunities and sports at AES it is wonderful. The growth in our school is tremendous and it is still going. Being a blue gator is such a great feeling and I'm proud to be one. The academics are amazing, aswell. Teachers will work with you and help you. GO BIG BLUE! AES is a student-led school in a sense of leadership like prefects and leader ship team. Yes, the teachers and faculty run the school but the students have a loud voice!
Don't believe the hype, my son transferred to AES for High School. We were told be multiple sources within the school, how they will work with students to help ensure their success, how extra work is available for all students. That's B.S. my son has asked every teacher there for extra credit, has stayed after school to get help and is still struggling to make honor roll. We will be transferring to another private school next year. You can make B's for a lot less tuition elsewhere.
Ascension Episcopal School (formerly Ascension Day School), is by far the most inclusive and individualized school in Lafayette. They offer the most personalized and rewarding education to all of their students. The average class size is around 12 students, this allows for a very personalized classroom experience and makes it possible for students to have a close and healthy relationship with their teachers. They also hold their teachers accountable and will not keep a poorly-performing teacher, they will instead, replace any poorly performing teachers with a highly-performing teacher. They have a 0% dropout rate, a 100% college-acceptance rate and many graduates have been accepted and attend ivy-league colleges. There is no other school in the area that cares as much for the students as Ascension Episcopal School. The learning environment is fantastic and the social atmosphere is nothing but nurturing. Parents are very involved in both school activities and are more than encouraged to attend all school events and activities. Ascension helps their students more than any other school in the area in terms of making sure they stay on track in their academic and extracurricular lives.
Wonderful, dedicated school.... outstanding new facility (high school) and challenging, driven environment... couldn't be happier with the success we've had since our daughter has been at this school...
Ascension is a wonderful school with a creative, caring, and dedicated faculty. The school offers a pre-k through 12 th grade opportunity. The academic reputation is strong and AES continues to instill great core values in their students! Very proud that my children have this opportunity.
Ascension Episcopal School provides students with academic excellence in a christian environment. I've never seen a school treat each child with such individual attention and loving care. The lower school head and staff are the best faculty in the state.
Severe verbal bullying problems, particularly among girls. Lack of discipline in lower school. Much of bullying comes from this lack of structure both in classroom behavior and in discipline program. They say, "Structure inhibits creativity." Evidence: Lack of structure encourages bullies. The school has been in state and local newspaper and TV headlines in recent months due to serious problems with key staff.
As of the middle school, I have been very pleased. The importance of the child comes first. Very open to communication with parents and feel like they can handle any issue that comes up. Now my Preschool experiance has been a nightmare to say the least. The principal is cold and heartless. These children are still babies in my eyes and should be cared for in a sensitive manner. I feel like they want a easy child one that doesn't take extra effort. I'm confused on my decision to keep him bc I know the middle school will be more willing to help him succeed. I think the Preschool needs new Leadership immediatly!!!
