From one great Ascend facility to another
Students attending Lefferts Gardens Ascend Lower School, one of Ascend’s newest schools, will attend school in their first year at 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 Lefferts Gardens Ascend Lower School’s permanent facility, which will occupy two floors in 123 Linden Boulevard—a brand new, beautifully designed residential building. Entering from our own entry plaza, the new facility offers generous lobby, gym, and multi-purpose spaces on the first floor, and sun-filled classrooms, specials classes, and offices on the upper floor. 123 Linden Boulevard 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 10:00 am at Lefferts Gardens Ascend Lower School’s current home at 870 Albany Avenue.
Nadine Rubinstein takes the helm as the founding school director at Lefferts Gardens Ascend Lower School. Prior to joining Ascend, she was a math instructional coach for Waltham Public Schools in Massachusetts. In this role she helped grade K-5 teachers develop pedagogical and content expertise in math through professional development and one-on-one coaching. Previously, Rubinstein served as a resident principal at two public elementary schools in the Boston area, where she worked closely with school leaders to create and implement strategic plans for school improvement. Earlier Rubinstein taught fifth grade in a self-contained classroom at two campuses of Brooke Charter Schools in Boston. While teaching, she mentored and coached a novice teacher through Brooke’s Associate Teacher program and was professionally filmed as part of a project to codify elements of effective instruction. Rubinstein holds an bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and a M.Ed. in School Leadership from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
