My son has done excellent in the Third and Fourth Grade at Assumption School. I felt a need to transfer him out of Saybrook Elementary after 3 years of my son having physical/mental stress-related problems. We have had NO such problems since the transfer 2 years ago. Just beginning the 5th grade, he has had only minor stress-induced issues...possibly due to homework, no biggie compared to what we went through at Saybrook! Unfortunately, Assumption has lost 3 fantastic teachers, we wish them all the best!
My (kindergarten) son transfered here in the middle of the year and it was the BEST thing we could have done! The teachers here are great and the principal is wonderful! My son left public a school (in this area) not being able to read sentences and within one week he was bringing books home and reading them to us. The teachers at Assumption actually care about the kids instead of treating them like a number.
The all day every day kindergarten gives the students a great basic knowledge that lacks in any of the public schools in this area. The dress code and discipline are fair and followed. The older grades may not be as far ahead of the public schools but a child that wants to learn is still ahead of public peers.
This school is awesome! I just cannot say enough about this school. The sad part is the lack of parent involvement. My kindergartener (1st grader in the fall) had several students in her class that hardly completed homework due to lack of involvement on the parents' part. Notes went home everyday! I loved being informed.
