My daughter is in the PK3 program and I have been very happy. She is learning important social and behavioral skills that will serve her well for the remainder of her life. I am also very happy with the diversity of this school and the significant parental involvement. A perfect community of people working hard to ensure the best education for our children. I plan to keep my daughter here through 5th grade and pray that they decide to add a middle school to AES!

Ascension Episcopal School has long been recognized as a school that stands out not only for its academic curriculum, but also for the importance we place on developing social skills and building character among our students. Our purpose is to develop the child intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and socially. It is in a child's formative years that a love for learning develops, and Ascension Episcopal offers the opportunity to embrace and enjoy that adventure. Ascension Episcopal School is a family community committed to academic excellence. Through the close cooperation of parents, faculty and administration, we foster a nurturing environment, developing the individual potential and ability of each child. We encourage enthusiasm for learning, confidence in pursuing school tasks independently and respect for others while working cooperatively. If you trust us with your child's education, we promise to teach your child reading, writing and arithmetic and we will treat them with respect. We will hold them accountable for their actions and demand that they be respectful and use their manners. I highly recommend this school to everyone.

Ascension is a wonderful and loving school that educates the whole child. I have two kids attending and am so impressed at how they have grown- not just academically but also in their desire to serve other less fortunate than themselves. The diversity at the school is tremendous with great parent involvement. I can't recommend it strongly enough.

Do not send your children to this school until you visit all the options that are available in this area. I made a huge mistake for my children and they are now behind in every area. Academically, this program is extremely weak (worksheets from 10 years ago). Most teachers are old and tired and lack the knowledge and training that other programs offer. This school lacks in technology and cannot meet the needs of any child that does not fit into their perfect box. This environment in the past year has become very "clique" oriented, and an extreme amount of favoritism is given to that certain clique of families.

My child has been attending AES since early childhood. He is now entering the 3rd grade. He has matured academically, spiritually and most of all being an honorable, respectful young man. Teachers, staff and parents work together to make sure our child is getting the best education possible. I can't recommend a better school for my child then aes.

I have taught in a variety of public and private schools over the past 40 years and can attest that Ascension is my all-time favorite. Infants through 5th Grade students,parents, and teachers form a caring family, dedicated to each helping each student be all they can be academically, physically, socially, and spiritually. Small class sizes gives every child a chance to participate, build leadership qualities, and to receive the help they need to succeed to the best of their abilities. Strong leadership from the Head of School, awesome parents who are excited about being a part of their child's educational experience, and caring, experienced, professional teachers make Ascension a superb place for students, parents, teachers, and staff to thrive. A child here cannot get "lost in the crowd" and students leave Ascension at the end of Fifth Grade ready for a successful Middle School experience in any size Middle School, anywhere. Take a tour! You'll feel and experience the difference!

It is a pleasure to work at Ascension Episcopal School, you can know and work with each student in your class. The atmosphere allows teachers to respond to the different learning styles that students bring into a classroom. Teachers are passionate about every child meeting his or her potential and they support each other in every way. It is wonderful to be part of such a learning environment.

My son was in their ECP (early childhood program) and has advanced to Pre-School thereafter. The school has a very close-family-like feel and the teachers that he has really care about their students. If I had to complain about anything, I think the Pre-School program is too demanding! My son is not yet 4 and already knows all his alphabets and can count up to 20 (even knows 1,00, 1,000, 100,000, and 1 million), He is also learnng how to write and can even write his own name. I thought they don't start 'learning' until Pre-K. What I like most about the school is that they make learning fun, so it's not like they are pounding on the students just so they know their alphabets and numbers. The teachers also incorporate learning into their world and activities so that everything they learn is relevant-- Very very good school.

My son attended AES from PreSchool through 5th grade, and was well prepared in all aspects for Middle School. Highlights of AES include the small class sizes, music and art programs and twice-a-week chapel services. Since the school does not include a Middle School, the Fifth Grade provides a great opportunity for students to be the campus leaders.

AES is a great school for preschool and prekindergarten. Our child learned immensely from the devoted teachers and administration. The small classes make for great individual attention. Our child was well prepared for kindergarten.

My son was a straight A student at AES and he continues to be one in middle school. The small classes and the family like environment was a great benefit to him. Starting in pre-K and finishing in 5th grade he learned everything he needed to know in order to move on to any middle school. I will recommend AES to anyone and I'm looking forward to enrolling my daughter there as well.

This school gave him confidence, care and taught him everything he needed to know to go to a good middle school. He was not an easy child and I loved the small classes, the fact that all the teachers knew all the children. He benefited from the buddy system where he could help children in other classes and boost his confidence in theatre and music. He learned to behave in church and be self disciplined. This school respects children and does not teach to the test, it teaches children to learn. It is small and kind of old fashioned in some ways...the ways that work. I have always recommended it to families coming to Houston from other States or abroad because it is such a caring community and very used to children from other countries. I felt at home and so did he. We stayed through fifth grade.

The Ascension Episcopal School does a very good job of inculcating moral values and good manners. The teachers give special attention to each child to ensure overall development. I was especially impressed with the improvement in table manners and positive change of attitude in my child. The teachers were available to discuss the progress of my child and provided valuable feedback. Parents were active participants in all the extra-currricular school activities. The academic program was reasonably stimulating, although I would not mind if it were more demanding.

AES offers a wonderfully balanced educational opportunity for youngsters by embracing students as whole beings. Children are able to learn acedemically, physically, and spiritually. Excellent staff and faculty. Campus is secured by surrounding gates. Children gain exposure to other cultures through interaction with a wide variety of students from other cultres/backgrounds. Reasonable rates.
