ABVM is an excellent school and has a great system. There is a real family feeling there, as everyone knows each other and the teachers and admin. truly care about the kids. Their teaching plan is well planned, competitive to similar schools and very organized.

Assumption BVM is an outstanding school! We are here to educate the whole child. As soon as you walk in the doors you are enveloped into the most warm and loving atmosphere. ABVM is one big family. The children are made welcome. The faculty are caring and loving. We challenge the children to be the best they can be! I love working here and I also have my child in the school.

This school has a warm and welcoming environment that helps make students and parents feel like "family." The curriculum is academically challenging and also includes religious and moral components that are essential for educating the whole child. The teachers are professional, caring, and dedicated to their mission. One of my children is an Assumption BVM graduate and three of my children are current students. I couldn't ask for a better place for my children to learn and grow both academically and spiritually. We have been a part of this school since 2000 and are very pleased and proud of it.

Our school is Catholic and educates the whole child, spiritually, academically and socially. We are a small school with a big family atmosphere. Our teachers are accredited and continually update their education in teaching methods, learning styles, and content knowledge. Our Home and School Association plays a major role in the day to day operations of our school, supplying us with materials, books, computers and volunteers to help us educate our students. Our after school day care program which has flourished for over 27 years is a safe, entertaining and economical alternative for working parents. Our children are educated in the faith and witness to it in their everyday relationships with teachers, each other, and service to their church and community. There are after school activities like cheerleading, girls track, choir, yearbook, school newspaper, newscast, cooking class, girl scouts and art club. Our enrichment curriculums are honors math and a weekly 8th grade Spanish class. Come and join us anytime to see what we're all about!

All three of my children attend Assumption. When we moved to the area we selected the community because of the school and have not been disappointed. The school provides a warm, caring learning environment while maintaining rigorous academic standards.

Both of my children attend Assumption and I could not ask for a better school. The faculty is dedicated to creating an enviroment that promotes the same values we teach at home. The curriculum is rigorous and differentiated.

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.
