Welcome to East Flatbush Ascend Lower School

The mission of every Ascend school is to equip our students with the knowledge, confidence, and character to succeed in college and beyond.


By offering a rich liberal arts education in a supportive environment, we animate children’s natural sense of curiosity and prepare students to think on their own, thrive on their own, and engage the world as informed, responsible citizens.

ascendlearning.org/coronavirus   will be updated with the most current information we have about the coming school year.

If you have additional questions not answered on the website, please reach out to your Principal or Assistant Principal of operations. For specific questions or help with remote instruction, please email your child’s teacher or Assistant Principal. Their emails can be found on the about us page of this site.
