From one great Ascend facility to another
Students attending at East Brooklyn Ascend Lower School, one of Ascend’s newest schools, will attend kindergarten at the beautiful Cypress Hills Ascend Lower School, which enrolls grades K-2. In their second year, when they enter first grade, East Brooklyn Ascend students will move a short distance away to East Brooklyn Ascend Lower School’s permanent facility—a stunningly renovated school building at 260 Shepherd Avenue! This new campus offers a spacious cafeteria, large gymnasium, sun-filled classrooms, and outdoor play space. 260 Shepherd Avenue is in close proximity to public transit options and easily accessible to numerous Brooklyn neighborhoods. The school will grow at this facility to enroll students in grades K through 4.
We invite all families to visit Ascend schools throughout this application season and participate in 30-minute school tours, offered weekly at your convenience; no sign-up necessary! Tours are offered every Wednesday and Thursday at 9:00 am at East Brooklyn Ascend Lower School’s current home at 396 Grant Avenue.
