I have had children in the school for the last 11 years. My children are honor students. The oldest two are excelling in highschool. Assumption School has instilled in them good work habits and a moral conscience.

I find our school to be a great environment for the students. It is challanging but rewarding. It teaches great moral values. We all feel like family here!

My children are blossoming here. We transferred the oldest from a public school, and he had to work very hard at first to catch up. Now, he gets straight A's. The younger child is learning to manage his ADD, and the teachers are very patient and loving with him. The new school is awesome! My sons both play sports here and the older one is in chess club.

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.
