Ascension Episcopal School (2525 Seagler Road) Comment
Two of my children attended this school for many years. This is a fairly small school that offers a family-like atmosphere. If you call the main office, they will know who you are. Moreover, you will get to know the names of all the children in your child s class each year. You will also get to know many of the families through the sports programs as well as school functions (recitals, plays, rodeo day, class parties, etc.). Importantly, the school promotes social, emotional and spiritual growth, in addition to academic growth. Children learn the importance of good character and the need to give back to the community. My children blossomed at this school. There is a proverb about how a young tree that starts to grow crooked never ends up growing straight. This school clearly helped ensure that my children grew straight. The class sizes are small. My children often had classes with 8 12 students. In terms of private schools in Houston, the tuition is very reasonable. In short, I would not hesitate to recommend this school to anyone looking to send his or her child to a small private school in West Houston. P.S. Naturally, I looked at the one-star reviews for the school. In terms of the curriculum, I know that the school routinely reviews its curriculum to ensure that it is current. If you call the head of school, she can speak to you at length on this topic if you want reassurance. Moreover, my two children consistently performed well on the annual standardized testing and were ahead of most of their classmates upon moving to a new school. Another one-star review cites bullying. While no school is immune from bullying, this is a small Christian school with a very favorable staff to student ratio, so bad student behavior is less likely to go unnoticed. Neither of my children ever raised the issue of bullying with me during their lengthy stay at the school.
