Discover the power of your voice at Ascend.

I love the diversity at my school and how every student has teachers they feel close to. But most of all, I love how everyone is encouraged to be who they want to be. Debating in class allows me to voice my beliefs, and even when we disagree, everyone feels welcome and comfortable.
