From one great Ascend facility to another

In it’s first year, Lefferts Gardens Ascend Lower School is located in the attractively renovated new East Flatbush Ascend Lower School, which also enrolls grades K-1. In their second year, Lefferts Gardens Ascend students will move a short distance away to a brand new, beautifully designed building. The new facility offers generous lobby, gym, and multi-purpose spaces, sun-filled classrooms, and specials classes. 123 Linden Boulevard is close to public transit and easily accessible to many Brooklyn neighborhoods. The school will grow at this facility to enroll students in grades K through 4.
