Assumption BVM is an excellent school and gets better and better each year. The rumors of its closure have only strengthened the commitment of parents and teachers alike. Sr. Patricia is constantly trying to improve the school and keep up with the technology of the surrounding public schools...and she is succeeding! Computer lab, science lab, smart boards...Assumption has it all! My two children love Assumption and I wouldn't consider sending them anywhere else.

Assumption is a great community school, lots of parent involvement and teacher commitment. My 2 oldest attended many years ago and now my youngest is attending. The school has only gotten better. I'm very glad I made this choice, and am proud of my children's education.

All of the students thrive! We work together to reach goals! Through fundraising and donations we have current Computer technology and a new Science Lab. The children are so excited with those and the art program, new library and Math Enrichment. The teachers are motivating and the children's grades are constantly above average!

I have three children in school. One who had a reading delay and the other with speech delay and one who just started. My one with the reading delay has been an honor student for the past four years and my one who had speech problems speaks clearly. I payed nothing for extra tutoring which they both received through the school services. We have had a very positive experience here.

If your child is average or above average, he/she will do well here. God help your child if he/she needs extra help, because you won't be getting it without paying money for a tutor. Communication is TERRIBLE. No phone calls home until the child is in serious academic trouble...then it's almost too late. There is no web site and very few (if any) teacher web sites. I have put three children through this school, and it has been going down hill every year. If I had to do it over again, I would pay the extra money to go to St. Bede's or OLG. There are a few good teachers who really care...my apologies to them for this review.

My children have become well rounded, ambitious, and confident since they started at Assumption. I was told by public school counselors that my 8 year old was not mature enough and too shy to advance to the next grade level. After one year at Assumption her confidence greatly improved. I thank the teachers and staff for there love and attention. The education my girls receive is excellent. They are motivated and love to learn.

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.
