Hmm... we couldn't find that place in our database.
Are you sure it's correct?
Ascend Learning is a leading nonprofit charter management organization based in Brooklyn that creates scalable K-12 solutions to the underachievement of economically underserved children. Founded in 2008, Ascend Learning currently operates five high performing charter elementary schools and two middle schools serving over 2000 students. In 2015, Ascend will launch a new middle school and high school in Brooklyn.
GothamSchools, the leading independent news source on the New York public schools, has cited Brooklyn Ascend Charter School one of the "Top 10 Scoring Charter Schools" in the city, based on 2012 test scores. Ascend's students posted significantly higher proficiency levels on the New York State tests in English Language Arts and math in 2012 than the community school districts in which the schools are located, than New York City, and the state as whole. The results are remarkable for their consistency: In every Ascend school, grade and subject, proficiency levels were higher than any of the three comparison groups.
Unlike other CMO-run schools, Ascend's schools do not rely on philanthropic support at either the school or the network levels, occupy privately leased space at market rates, and are fully self-sustaining. The Ascend school design, a school culture of high academic expectations, and Ascend's ambitious humanities program, develops academically advanced and intellectually curious scholars who are ready for the challenges of college and beyond.
