What Our Students Say
My mom was a big advocate, and I also worked with my teachers. Even though they weren’t formal advocates in Ascend, I considered my peers my advocates, too. I moved right before high school, so I had to get to know a lot of people during this time, but I went from being a student who just showed up every day because that’s what I was supposed to do, to going to school because I wanted to succeed. And Ascend played a big role in that. It builds a feedback loop.
