All Saints Episcopal School4

All Saints overall is a very good school. The teachers are dedicated, classes sizes are small. Sadly, the school is experiencing high teacher turnover this year especially among it's most valued and experienced staff due, in part, to a lack of good leadership. Tuition is the highest in Tyler and does provide for numerous extracurricular opportunities. However, I disagree with the previous reviewer that you'll pay more in big cities. We moved from a larger city where we paid less and while our previous school did not provide as many extracurriculars, the SAT scores were higher and overall outcomes better. There are several private, charter, and magnate schools in Tyler worth exploring. All Saints is one of many good options.
I went to All Saints starting in fifth grade through graduation. Great academics and wonderful faculty. It's also reasonably priced tuition compared to other private schools, especially if you are coming from a big city. However, there will be additional expenses/fees like uniforms, school trips, club costs, etc. I recommend starting your child early, as most people start in Pre-K so it can be a little click-ish. A lot of money is in this school as well (many students are "old money"), so students can be a bit spoiled/materialistic. Also, if your primary reason for sending your children here is religious, I would consider another school. We have chapel and Senior Theology, but not a lot of strong Christians in the student body. However, it is probably the best academic school in East Texas and once, again, you have great faculty and administration so your students will learn a lot. Also, you can take a lot of dual credit/AP courses in high school. I left with over 30 hours of college credit. Everyone goes to a four year university and ASES has a great college guidance counselor. ASES prepares you well for college - I am now getting my PhD.
My daughter started PreK last year and is getting ready for K5. I feel so blessed for my daughter to be attending a college preparatory school. The teachers are knowlegable and there is alot of opportunities. We are the Class of 2024 and I know she will be be prepared for College.
We are so thankful we choose All-Saints for our childrens education. My daughter went from Pre-K thru Hight School Graduation. The College Prepatory invironment truly prepared her for a postive college experience. Our 7th grade son is benefiting from all the wonderful programs at All-Saints. It's the best in Texas!!
All Saints provides more opportunity academically than any other school in or around Tyler, and has a unique capacity to attract kind and successful students, parents, administrators, and teachers. Fair warning, though: for students unaccustomed to rigorous classes, All Saints academics can be overwhelming until one adapts accordingly.
All-saints is a really good school to go to. i ahve gone to all-saints for two years and i love. I like it more than my school in hawaii. I would reccomend this school to anyone looking for a good friendly school with great academics
Having moved here from another state, I am truly impressed by the thoughtful reception my child has received at All Saints. As a result, the transition has been a good one for us. I am equally impressed by all the competent faculty and people who make this school a wonderful, stimulating, and safe place to be. There were many great private schools to choose from in Tyler and I am happy that we are at All Saints.
I would highly recommend this school to any parent interested in a college preparatory experience for their child. This school is incredible and offers a wide range of athletic, arts and spiritual outlets.
