Student-centered learning


Ascend schools provide a joyful, inquiry-based learning environment where students develop their full potential. Students are encouraged to think critically, discover their own opinions, identity, and voice, and learn from one another.

Our approach

Beautiful school facilities


All our schools are housed in inviting, custom-built or newly renovated buildings where every design detail communicates our high aspirations for teaching and learning. Schools consist of colorful, well-lit classrooms with large, modern gymnasiums. Our school facilities provide welcoming environments for students and families to come together for community events.

Lower schools


Beginning in kindergarten, Ascend lower schools establish a foundation of strong basic skills in early literacy, a conceptual understanding of math, critical thinking, intellectual drive, and a love of learning.
