Message from the school director
On behalf of the board of trustees, faculty, and staff of Bushwick Ascend, I extend a warm welcome! We recognize that you chose where to enroll your scholar—one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent or guardian—and we are honored that you have selected Bushwick Ascend. Your choice represents your faith in us, and we are firmly committed to maintaining your trust.
We look forward to working with you to fulfill our vision of educational excellence for every scholar, understanding that your support is crucial to our success. Research has revealed a clear link between family involvement and academic performance, and we seek to leverage that power to realize each child's full potential. This website is just one of many tools to help us share information and best support your child on the path to college.
Thank you again for choosing Bushwick Ascend. We have an exciting and productive year ahead of us!
