the years 2013-2015 were the worst I has since. And it was hard to watch it go downhill.

This is has been the best school I have worked at. The Principal is a great Principal. The teacher show great leadership and they care about the kids. Its better than ST. Rose. The teachers really teach these kids. The test scores are at a good place but could be higher. Only if the kids would study at home. I would recommend this school to any parent. The atmosphere is very great. The students here are awesome.

Not all Catholic schools are created equal...turns out that St. Rose's benchmarks are a lot higher than Assumptions' benchmarks (for the same grade levels) or maybe Assumption benchmarks are not being met, either way students from Assumption are not being educated with the same care than those student who attend St. Rose...Trapped because Assumption is better than HISD but worse than St. Rose...and kids cant test in to St. Rose due to Assumptions lower bench marks....... as a parent its a difficult situation to be in...

There are a lot of changes going on at the school, I'd say for the better. I think enrollment is going to go up once more people hear about the school. A lot of new teachers came in, especially in the junior high. Some parents are angry because suddenly their kids aren't doing well, but I'm glad our kids are actually getting prepared for high school for a change, even if it means they actually have to work.

New principal came in, 9 out of 18 teachers quit the same year. Enrollment is down to 200 over the 9 grade levels. Sports teams are failing, test scores below average, massive debt to the archdiocese. The new junior-high religion teacher has zero qualifications or experience.

If some parents are not happy because their kids are behind their academics after Seton...I think you parents need to teach your children diligence. Seton is a great school...Administration...can't complain, I have two children currently attending Seton, and and my eldest is an alumni of Seton now attending a very prestigious Catholic High School and so far excelling in his academics.

My sons attended Seton and have gone on to St. Pius X and have done very well, and I still have one at Seton. The principal is exceptional--outstanding listener, strong leader, excellent role model, and very involved in all aspects of the school. Most teachers are very good. Even the 'worst' are better than you'll find in many expensive private schools, and they all genuinely care about the kids. Seton has given my boys an excellent middle school education and I would highly recommend it.

This is an excellent school that really helps build children in to the future leaders of our community. The schools education and atmosphere is probably one of the most unique aspects of the school. This school has a great amount of tradition when it comes to academics and sports. Children get a real sense of belonging to something both when they attend and after they leave. Smaller classes allow for more one-on-one communication which really helps students begin to get experience for the type of classroom experience they will recieve in upper level college classes.

Find another school to send your daughter to. There are several good Catholic schools in Houston but this is not one of them.

My son graduated from this school and is so far behind, he is still catching up in High School. Their facilities are falling down and the feeder Churches that support them, are struggling. Go to a school that is supported by a strong parish, or you're child will suffer in their high school education.

The enrollment in this school has dropped in half in the past 3 years. Discipline and respect is non-existant. The Houston Galveston Dioceses could care less about this inter-city school. The principal is the worst of all.
